Chemotherapy - side effects


Different chemotherapy drugs may cause different side effects.

  • People react differently to treatment – some people have very few side effects while others have more.
  • Almost all side effects are short term and gradually disappear once the treatment stops.
  • It is very important to tell your nurse or doctor if treatment is making you feel unwell.
  • Changes can be made during treatment that can help reduce the side effects.
