How do solid tumors survive toxic chemo?

Chemotherapy drugs have poor results rates for many reasons. One big reason is that solid tumors have a unique method of growth from healthy organs and tissues. As a tumor grows, it puts out hormonal signals for outside blood vessels to grow towards and into it. These new blood vessels are imperfect though in that they have minute holes in the walls that allow fluid, proteins and blood particles to leak into the tumor for food. The blood vessels around the outside of the tumor are normal and do not leak. This is like a balloon that is being inflated while the outside world doesn’t affect it. Chemotherapy chemicals cannot effectively penetrate this “balloon” and end up destroying healthy organs and tissues instead.
