Avoid Chemotherapy and it's Side Effects

Cancer cells multiply fast and chemotherapy-drugs are designed to kill these fast-growing cells. Unfortunately, these drugs pass through the entire body and kill all fast-growing cells including the healthy ones. This affects the internal functioning of the body, leading to further complications. Some of the significant side effects of chemotherapy include:

  • Hair loss
  • Anaemia (low red blood cell counts)
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Constipation
  • Fatigue
  • Infections
  • Diarrhea
  • Mouth, tongue, and throat problems such as sores and pain while swallowing
  • Urine, bladder, and kidney problems
  • Weight loss
  • Fertility problems
  • Skin and nail changes

CanAssist Breast determines the patient’s risk of breast cancer recurrence over five years, classifying patients as ‘low-risk’ or ‘high-risk.’ The 'low-risk' patients’ can possibly avoid the side effects of chemotherapy and personalize their cancer treatment.
