Caption

Cancer patient. Smiling female cancer patient sitting up in a hospital bed. Cancers are caused by unchecked abnormal cell growth. She is being treated with chemotherapy, a course of anticancer drugs used to stop these cells from multiplying. Unfortunately the drugs used in cancer chemotherapy act on all rapidly dividing cells, not just cancer cells. Thus, they affect the bone marrow, the immune system, the intestinal lining, the hair follicles, the ovaries and the testes, sometimes causing severe side-effects. The chemotherapy has led to this woman's hair falling out.
