Targeted Hormone Therapies for Breast Cancer & Their Hair Loss

Targeted Hormone Therapies for Breast Cancer & Their Hair Loss

Newer targeted hormone or biological therapies for cancer don't usually cause total hair loss like chemotherapy drugs, but can result in changes such as thinning of the hair and dryness, as well as changes in texture similar to the chemo curls... most are mild.

Some of the targeted therapies that have been linked with hair changes include: Erbitux (cetuximab); Gilotrif (afatinib); Gleevec (imatinib); Imbruvica (ibrutinib); Nexavar (sorafenib); Tarceva (erlotinib).

Some hormonal therapies commonly used for breast cancer have been associated with thinning of the hair for some people. Unlike chemotherapy, people may be using the drug for many months or even years before they notice the changes in their hair.

Hormonal therapies more often linked to hair loss include: Tamoxifen; Aromatase inhibitors: Hair loss appears to be more common with Arimidex (anastrozole), and Femara (letrozole) than with Aromasin (exemestane); Faslodex (fulvestrant). I took Tamoxifen and didn't notice and hair thinning.

Bold Beanies Headwear is soft and very comfortable. Made in the UK using the highest quality soft thin stretchy cotton fabrics to keep you covered up wether from medical and non medical alopecia hair loss, hair thinning or with hair to protect a sensitive head from the elements. Our cancer chemotherapy headwear is available as super soft snug beanie hat, head wraps and scarves (and matching PICC line cover sleeves). A range for Men, women and kids in customisable plain colours an beautiful Liberty Art Fabric prints.
