Targeted Hormone Therapies for Breast Cancer & Their Hair Loss

Posted by Emilienne Rebel on

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.

Pretty Gifts for Women Having Chemo

Product Spotlight : Blue Skies Bold Beanies Gift Posy Bouquet. The Ultimate Luxury Comfy Gift for Ladies with Cancer Hair Loss from Chemotherapy Treatments. 

Three quality cotton soft beanies rolled to look like roses and resented with silk flowers to make a gift posy bouquet. A traditional gift (flowers by post) but also practical too. Great alternative to real flowers when you are ill (and you don't need to find yet another vase!). The Blue Skies Bouquet Bold Beanies Bouquet Posy includes blue toned hats... One Liberty Art Fabrics blue printed hat and two co-ordinating plains. 

This ready made gift takes difficult task of choosing which styles to choose from you and makes it quicker and easier... alternatively you can choose the hats you want in a bouquet by adding three or more hats to your basket and selecting the 'Make into Bouquet' option also. 

Silky soft stretchy cotton cancer hats made to fit snuggly onto a sore scalp with an emphasis on comfort and ease. Easy to put on and so soft and comfortable to forget about the hair loss and get on with daily activities or simply keep the head at an even temperature to get a good nights sleep. 

All bouquets (or single beanies) can be sent with a handwritten gift note directly to the recipient. Please add note at checkout.

The very first bouquet ever sent was to a woman suffering with Alopecia Areata, so suitable for all types of hair thinning, medical or otherwise. These stretchy breathable hats are also suitable to wear over hair as a sweat wicking barrier under all types of helmets and hard hats or hijabs.

Bacon Linked to Breast Cancer...?

Bacon Linked to Breast Cancer...?

"Regularly eating foods like bacon and sausages may raise the risk of breast cancer, according to researchers."

I myself am a vegetarian; I breast fed both my babies; I am not overweight and take regular exercise; have no family history of Breast Cancer and I drink rarely. So articles like this often may me stop and think... why are more younger women getting Breast cancer... is there an environmental trigger? 

"A review of studies found women who ate high levels of processed meat had a 9% increased risk of the cancer compared with those who ate little of it.

The study backs up previous findings of the World Health Organization, which says processed meats cause cancer.

Experts recommend caution about the findings and say the actual risk for individual women is "very small"."
