Being male, I didn't worry at all about my hair thinning during my treatment - I actually embrased it. it was Cysplatin in particular that caused my hair to thin out and made my tinittus significantly worse.
I am led to believe that it is not the Herceptin that causes hair loss, but the other cytotoxis used in the treatment. So I would have thought that hair should be able to grow back if you are ONLY on Herceptin. But I am only guessing.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
