Lifting the Fog: A Chemo Brain Discussion with Epic Care Oncologist Dr. Natalie Marshall
Trouble recalling information or notice a general mental ‘clouding’? If so, you’re one of many cancer patients who report experiencing some kind of cognitive impairment often referred to as chemo brain.
Join Dr. Marshall at Women’s Cancer Resource Center to learn more about chemo brain, including what causes it, how to manage it, and options for treatment and support.
Chemo brain can start before, during or just after cancer treatment and is associated with a variety of cancer treatments, not just chemotherapy. Common symptoms include forgetfulness, slower thinking or processing information, difficulty concentrating or recalling details or words, trouble multitasking, and more. Whether subtle or extreme, you’re likely well aware of the difference chemo brain makes in your thinking and the impact to every day life.
