Chemotherapy-Induced Neuropathy San Ramon
While doctors and researchers have spent decades searching for new ways to administer cancer treatments, the current therapies that treat the disease almost always come with side effects. Chemotherapy is a treatment designed to kill cancer cells, but unfortunately, it can also affect the nerves connecting the spinal cord to muscles, skin, and internal organs. Disorders of peripheral nerves are common in chemotherapy patients, as well as other drug therapies.
What Can Cause Chemotherapy-Induced Neuropathy?
Until there is an advance of more effective cancer therapies, peripheral neuropathy complications of chemotherapy are increasing. Chemotherapy can cause degeneration of peripheral sensory and motor nerves, causing patients to see an increase in sensory disturbances, balance problems, or weakness.
