Chemotherapy Side Effects: Nails


Next »


The changes that can happen to finger nails and toe nails as a result of chemotherapy and what to do about your nails during chemotherapy are discussed in the the other sections of this document.

Nails grow slowly. On average, it takes about 6 months for a fingernail to regrow and 12 months to regrow a toe nail. The new nails usually appear to be normal.

Alert your doctor if you have redness, pain, secretions under the nail, or changes around your cuticles or if any of nail changes become worrisome. Your doctor may have a prescription medication to recommend.
