Chemotherapy can be used to treat different types of cancers, but not all chemotherapy is the same. In fact – there are even different ways to receive chemotherapy.
When it comes to chemotherapy, patients may have a lot of questions, and in some cases, misconceptions of what they should expect to experience. For example, one common misconception is that if a patient doesn’t lose their hair, it’s not working. Hair loss is not always a side effect of chemotherapy.
