Book description from the publisher:
"More people than ever before are living with and surviving cancer. However, the human cost of life-saving cancer treatment may be unexpected side effects to the skin, hair, and nails. How can patients navigate these changes without affecting their treatment, their appearance, or even their sense of who they are? Dr. Lacouture's Skin Care Guide for People Living With Cancer is the first book written by a board-certified dermatologist to help patients care for treatment-associated skin, hair, and nail toxicities, which can range from mild and annoying to serious enough to affect health, treatment, and quality of life. In this book, Dr. Mario Lacouture discusses a number of side effects that may rise from chemotherapy, biologic therapy, radiation therapy, stem-cell transplants, and other tools in the fight against cancer. He offers a number of practical suggestions that are useful to people living with cancer, including preparation for the rash, itching, or dry skin that may come with treatment; care for the fingernails, and suggested products that will contribute to their health; awareness of the risks for hair loss, and resources that patients may need to cope; suggested moisturizers and cosmetics that are appropriate for patients' use; and specific information for survivors. Written by one of the foremost experts in the dermatologic side effects of cancer treatments, Dr. Lacouture's Skin Care Guide for People Living With Cancer offers patients clear information and practical suggestions for preventing, treating, and living through these changes during their cancer journey."
