Cancer and Hair Loss

11:30 - 12:30
November 15, 2018

Hair is a secondary sexual characteristic and as such it can have a significant adverse emotional impact.  Affecting morale, confidence and self-esteem, many people’s personalities are influenced by their hair.

Scalp hair is also an extremely good barometer of our general well-being.  Nutrition, weight changes, hormones and stress can all influence scalp hair growth.  However, the most profound affect is cancer chemotherapy.

In this session I will explain the pathway of specific drugs on the hair cycle, the prognosis of hair regrowth and the effects of radiotherapy, scalp cooling, camouflaging hair loss and hair transplantation.
