Hi to you too. Bone cancer can appear within younger people as well. The treatment usually consists from chemotherapy, often combined with radiotherapy. Antagonists of folic acid are also known as antifols. One of the most known antifols is methotrexate. It blocks some enzymes that are important for synthesis of folic acid. Folic acid is important for DNA synthesis. In this way, it stops the cancer growth. As other cytotoxic drugs, it also shows many side effects. Sometimes, surgery can also be performed. Good luck!
