Chemotherapy Drug Linked to Permanent Hair Loss
May 17th, 2016|
Each year, more than 650,000 cancer patients undergo chemotherapy treatments. Combined with other treatments, chemotherapy continues to give cancer patients the best chance of reaching remission, making the side effects worth it for most patients. However, many patients who were given the chemotherapy drug Taxotere are suffering from a side effect that was not communicated to them prior to treatment and could impact the rest of their lives.
A recent study has linked Taxotere to an incurable form of alopecia, resulting in severe and permanent hair loss. To make matters worse, many patients who were given this chemotherapy treatment were not informed of the risk of developing this permanent condition. If they had been informed, they may have chosen an alternative chemotherapy breast cancer treatment, but unfortunately, they were never given that chance.
