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.
