I can't speak for all doctors, but for myself, at this point in my life, I would choose chemo if my prognosis was otherwise very poor and it gave me a significantly higher chance of long term survival or cure. 20 or 30 years from now, probably not.

I've yet to meet a single person who had a good outcome from chemo who regrets undergoing it, even as they acknowledge what a horrendous experience it was.
