Life With Cancer
Q&A: Cancer Side Effects
Side effects like reduced fertility all depend on the diagnosis, type of treatment, and the doses of medicines or radiation. Everyone is different, so be sure to talk with your child's care team about your concerns.
Side effects can include tiredness, flu-like symptoms, hair loss, and other problems. It's hard to predict how the body will react, so doctors closely watch kids who get cancer treatment. They weigh the side effects against a treatment's benefits.
