Chemotherapy for vulvar cancer
We understand the potential side effects of chemotherapy are unpleasant and may include nausea, vomiting, hair loss and mouth sores. Your care team will use multiple measures to help reduce or moderate chemotherapy-related symptoms.
Prior to receiving chemotherapy for vulvar cancer, you may receive pre-medications to help make symptoms more tolerable.
During chemotherapy, your care team will offer supportive care services designed to help ease side effects. For example, your naturopathic clinician may suggest supplements to reduce nausea. Also, your mind-body therapist can recommend mind-body techniques to help you relax and feel less anxious during your vulvar cancer chemotherapy treatments.
