| Survivor: Breast Cancer
Hair loss is often times referred to as one of the most traumatic side effects of cancer treatment. It may occur only on the head, but it could also include eye lashes, eyebrows, nose hair and total body hair as well. Certain drugs, such as Taxotere, are more likely to cause hair loss or thinning. It sucks. Whether you are reading these to find the silver lining in the pros, or to become better prepared by reviewing the cons, you can use this list to empower yourself. Knowledge is power and the more you know about what’s to come, the better suited you are to overcome it.
