Chemotherapy Drug Linked to Permanent Hair Loss
May 24th, 2016|
After you were diagnosed with breast cancer, you committed to the fight of a lifetime. Together with your oncologist, you developed a plan, weighed all the possible side effects, and pushed ahead full-force. After months of treatments, your cancer is in remission, but now you face another medical challenge you weren’t even aware of, and unfortunately, it’s one with no cure.
The breast cancer chemotherapy drug Taxotere has been linked to an incurable form of alopecia, resulting in severe and permanent hair loss. Patients who were given this drug lost their hair during treatment with the understanding that it would grow back once the treatment was complete, only to find their hair loss was permanent. To make matters worse, the manufacturer may have known about this devastating side effect and kept it from physicians and the patients they treat.
