At the end of the course, technology was developed to prevent the loss of hair loss caused by cancer patients during chemotherapy.
Drugs used during chemotherapy and known as "alopecia" that cause hair loss make life of cancer patients a nightmare. Although spills vary depending on the medication used, the dose used, and the body's response to the drug, 80% of the treated patients are confronted with this trauma. But medical technology has finally developed a solution to this problem.
Coordinator of the City Oncology Center Medical Oncology Specialist Dr. Usak said hair loss causes traumatic problems, especially in women, and hair loss can lead to treatment failure.
Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in women and 1 out of every 8 women are diagnosed with breast cancer, said the professor. Dr. Usul, diagnosed with breast cancer, can be treated with a significant amount of chemotherapy, he said;
While chemotherapy kills cancer cells, it also damages healthy cells, such as hair cells, so that 80% of patients receiving chemotherapy show hair loss. This situation can lead to withdrawal from social life and withdrawal of treatment. "
