Side effects of chemotherapy drugs may be significant. Each drug has different side effects, and not every drug causes every side effect. Ask your doctor about the side effects of the actual drugs you’ll receive.
Side effects that occur during chemotherapy treatment
Common side effects of chemotherapy drugs include:
- Hair loss
- Loss of appetite
- Mouth sores
- Easy bruising
Many of those side effects are often prevented or treated. Most side effects subside after treatment ends.
