Hair Loss with Cancer

Hair loss is a common side effect of cancer-fighting drugs and radiation therapy.

Hair loss usually starts a week or more after treatment begins. It may be a slow process that takes a month or more. First you may notice more hair on your child's pillow in the morning or more hair on the comb after combing. Then the hair falls out more quickly.
