Several people experience hair loss after cancer treatment. Others report their hair is becoming dry and very thin. Some would lose all of their hair, others do not experience this side effect at all.

This variation depends on the drug that is administered, the dose, and other aspects. Your healthcare team should tell you if this side effect is likely or not. After the first injection, the hair may fall out for some weeks, or it takes more time. Before it starts falling out, you might feel heat or itchiness in your scalp.
