Managing Symptoms & Side Effects
General side effects can happen when hormonal therapy is given, but they depend on a number of things, including the specific cancer being treated, how your body responds to the treatment and the type of hormonal therapy being administered. Side effects vary between men and women and by drug. Some of the most common side effects include:
- hot flashes
- loss of interest in sex
- mood changes
We offer ways for you to document, track, recognize and reduce your symptoms and side effects. Even with all these resources available, we want to remind you that it’s still important to discuss your symptoms with your healthcare team.
