Hi, guys. My father has been diagnosed with lung cancer and doctors are considering the best treatment option for him. One of the possibilities is doxorubicin. I have heard that it has many side effects, among them is alopecia. Can you tell me something more about this? Is there a possibility of preventing it?

Hi, there. Doxorubicin shows many side effects. Alopecia is a hair loss and it is one of the side effects. I have read somewhere that there are some studies about preventing this. Patients were given some gel to put on their scalp. This gel packs showed quite success. People didn’t have to wear wigs anymore. I am not sure if these gel packs are made for official usage. You should ask your father’s doctor about this. Bye!
