Link Between Hair Loss and Cancer

Losing hair is a normal matter for us because hair is used to fall out and grow back. Losing hair in small numbers or big numbers can be due to an abnormal change in the body.

The point is; hair loss can occur due to serious illness. That is why understanding the causes of hair loss are important. If you lose a large number of hairs every day, you should consult a professional.

Cancer does not cause hair to fall directly. Actually, chemotherapy which is a common treatment for cancer patients can cause hair fall.

Chemotherapy involves injecting different chemicals to fight cancerous cells and these chemicals cause different damages to the body too.

Mean to say, one of the side effects of chemotherapy is rapid hair loss. So if you are not undergoing chemotherapy, you might not have cancer.

However, you should get in touch with a professional to be on the safer side. If you are losing hair rapidly, you should visit an expert at the earliest.

If you are concerned about any of these symptoms you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. Find more information at Cancer Research UK.
