How genetic testing can help women with breast cancer avoid chemotherapy

. The trial involved 10,273 women aged 17–75 years between 2006 and 2010. All women received Oncotype DX testing, which predicted their risk of cancer recurrence within ten years.

Before TAILORx, half of all new cases of breast cancer (over 266,000 in the United States and  54,900 in the UK ) receive chemotherapy, a treatment with adverse effects such as vomiting, nausea, fatigue, hair loss, neuropathy and, in younger women, early menopause or infertility.

Women eligible for Oncotype DX testing include those recently

The funny thing was that while hair has a maximum length it grows to, after mine grew very


Not all chemo causes hair loss and not everyone getting chemo will lose their hair. I had chemo for 8 months and didn't lose any hair, but I lost hair where the radiation went in and came out of my head. My hair grew back a darker color and curly, but
