CALL 24/7 (615) 244-4325

Breast cancer affects more women in the United States than any other form of cancer. Upon diagnosis, many patients choose to fight back with chemotherapy — an aggressive, drug-based treatment that often includes Taxotere®, an injectable concentrate. Chemotherapy has well-documented side effects, such as nausea, fatigue, and temporary hair loss. However, some female cancer survivors are learning that Taxotere can cause permanent hair loss, or alopecia — a side effect they weren’t warned about.

If you or your mother, sister, or daughter were diagnosed with Stage 1, 2, or 3 cancers after 2005 and suffered permanent alopecia following chemotherapy treatment, call our lawyers now. Our law firm knows how difficult it is to beat cancer, and we understand the frustration the self-esteem, body image, and quality of life issues caused by permanent hair loss. You’re not alone. Contact us online or by phone to get help now.

Research Links Taxotere® to Permanent Alopecia in Women

Cancer patients are warned of the side effects they can expect to face before undergoing chemotherapy. One of the most well-documented of these consequences is temporary hair loss. In most cases, patients are told they can expect complete hair regrowth 3–6 months after they complete their treatment. But since the mid-2000s, reports of permanent hair loss after chemotherapy treatment have increased.

A study published by Annals of Oncology analyzed 20 female breast cancer patients who suffered permanent alopecia after undergoing chemotherapy. Researchers concluded that taxane chemotherapy drugs like Taxotere “seem to be responsible for [severe and permanent female hair loss].” Nutritional deficiencies and hormonal imbalance, two factors linked to female hair loss, were ruled out as factors among the study’s participants.

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
