What are the Side Effects of Chemotherapy?
Chemotherapy medicines are designed to kill off cancerous cells, which are cells that are growing and dividing out of control. Unfortunately, some types of healthy cells also grow and divide quickly. Chemotherapy drugs have no way of distinguishing between cancerous and healthy cells, so they often damage good cells alongside cancerous cells. This causes many negative side effects.
The most common side effects of chemotherapy include:
- Hair loss
- Nausea and vomiting
- Loss of appetite
Some of the side effects of chemo can be treated with more medication. If chemotherapy’s side effects wear you down, don’t get discouraged. There are many ways to mitigate their effect as you go through treatment.
