Hair Loss From Treatment And How To Deal With It

How To Cope With The Emotions Of Hair Loss

Next » « Previous


Hair loss can be the hardest part of cancer treatment to accept. It is a very visible, constant reminder of the disease.

Sometimes there is little time to adjust to the change since many patients lose their hair in a matter of days.

It is advisable to share your emotions with family and friends. They are part of your health care team and want to help.

Support groups can also be helpful - even if you just create your own one-on-one group with another person who is going through the same thing, or has gone through it. We call another person with a similar cancer a "cancer buddy."

For information about support groups, self-help groups and buddies, see "To Learn More."
