During chemotherapy treatment, you may experience different side effects which include fatigue and hair loss. These can vary depending on the type and stage of cancer you have as well as the chemotherapy drug used for your treatment. Most side effects are temporary and can be treated or managed by your care team.
For many cancer patients, hair loss is a deeply emotional side effect of treatment. At Bowen Icon Cancer Centre, the Paxman Scalp Cooling system is now available as an added service for patients undergoing chemotherapy treatment.
