Will Chemotherapy Make Me Lose My Hair?
Whether you will or will not lose your hair during chemotherapy for cancer treatment depends in part on the types of cancer drugs that are a part of your treatment plan. Often, breast cancer treatment involves a combination of chemo drugs and the different combinations may contribute to hair loss during your treatment. Keep in mind that every body, and every cancer, respond differently to chemotherapy.
