Side effects of cancer treatment

Every person is differently affected with the cancer treatment. Depending on various physical factors, some people may experience fewer side effects while some may not experience any side effects at all. However, it is found that most of the patients feel very sick after or during their treatment process. Usually the doctors do tell their patients about the possible side effects of cancer treatment and what all they must expect, after the treatment. The patients are also made aware of all the various after effects that are normal or those require immediate medical attention.

Mostly, many side effects also depend on the type of therapy used for curing the disease. For example, patients under going radiotherapy and chemotherapy may experience hair loss. Hair loss is one of the most common side effects of these cancer therapies, which becomes very difficult for the patient to cope up with. Many patients prefer wearing a wig or hairpiece as a solution to their hair loss problem.

The side effects of cancer also include nausea to eat. Patients may avoid eating food. However, it’s very important to eat healthily after the treatment because that increases the immune system of the body against the cancer cells, rebuilds healthy cells and help recover faster. Some may also experience mouth soreness or sensitivity, especially patients undergoing chemotherapy. In such cases, taking juices or any other nutritional supplement is advisable.

The patients should not overlook their side effects. In case of feeling sick, tired or experiencing lot of pain, the doctor must be contacted for medicines, to help them feel better. Apart from the rest, one of the biggest side effect that a patient experiences is a emotional hunchback. Therefore, they need lots of care, love and affection from their family members, relatives and friends. Coping up with the emotional pressure will also help them recover faster, physically.
