Docetaxel is a chemotherapy drug. Chemotherapy is a treatment using anti-cancer drugs which aims to destroy cancer cells. Docetaxel is the generic (non-branded) name of the drug, but you may hear it called by one of its brand names such as Taxotere.
When is docetaxel prescribed?
Docetaxel is used to treat primary breast cancer (cancer that has not spread beyond the breast or the lymph nodes under the arm) in combination with other chemotherapy drugs.
Docetaxel is also used alone or with other chemotherapy or anti-cancer drugs to treat breast cancer that has spread to areas around the breast such as the lymph nodes above or below the collarbone (known as regional or locally advanced recurrence), or to other parts of the body (secondary breast cancer).
