How To Find Help Coping With Chemo Brain

« Previous


Start with your oncologist or primary care doctor for a diagnostic workup of potential medical problems that may be contributing.

If you have difficulty copies with chemo brain, contact a neuropsychologist. A neuropsychologist is a professional who specializes in helping people with memory problems. He or she will test brain function and possibly recommend ways to help better deal with the problems. If a neuropsychologist is not available, consider a neurologist (a medical director who specializes in the nervous system) or a psychologist.

Once you have identified potential doctors, see: How To Choose A Specialist.

NOTE: Check your insurance coverage to find out whether the appointment(s) will be covered. Even if covered, what will your costs be? (If money is a problem, see the articles in "To Learn More.")
