Following breast cancer treatment, many women could not be more thankful to be in remission. However, if you are now suffering from permanent alopecia (baldness) potentially caused by the drug Taxotere (docetaxel), that feeling of thankfulness may be replaced with anxiety and insecurity.
Taxotere® is a chemotherapy drug that has been linked to permanent hair loss in women following their breast cancer treatment. Drug manufacturers that do not give adequate warning of potential side-effects to those prescribed Taxotere should be held liable.
Forty-seven percent of female cancer patients find chemotherapy-induced alopecia (CIA) to be the most traumatic aspect of chemotherapy. For over 6% of those women who were given Taxotere, that trauma continues due to CIA.
One in four breast cancer patients have been prescribed Taxotere, which means thousands of women are now suffering the effects of permanent baldness following their cancer treatments.
