Hair Loss In Radiation Therapy - Dr. Afshin Forouzannia

Author: Breast Cancer Answers®

Dr. AFSHIN FOROUZANNIA: Patients do not lose their hair from radiation therapy. Radiation is a localized treatment so where we aim that’s what we hit. So for patients that are being treated for breasts, it be only to their breasts and the nodal tissue, we won’t affect any of the other organs such as liver, kidneys, bowel, stomach, hair… so where we aim that’s what we hit so patients will not lose their hair from radiation therapy. Hi, I am Dr. Jay Harness and I want to share with you important information that I believe that every newly diagnosed patient with breast cancer needs to know.

Susan Denver: I am a breast cancer survivor. Katherine Stockton: I am a breast cancer survivor. Coree: I am a breast cancer survivor. Susan Denver: And I want every woman to know… Katherine Stockton: …about personalized breast cancer treatment… Susan Denver: …and the genomic test. Coree: A test that helps guide a woman and her doctor… Katherine Stockton: …to the best treatment options for her.

Susan Denver: Pass it on!.
