Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy is the use of drugs to kill cancer cells. Chemotherapy usually injected into a vein, but sometimes can be given as a pill. Chemotherapy may be recommended for some women with advanced vulvar cancer.

Side Effects of Chemotherapy
Each person responds to chemotherapy differently. Some people may have very few side effects while others experience several. Most side effects are temporary. They include:

  • Nausea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Mouth sores
  • Increased chance of infection
  • Bleeding or bruising easily
  • Vomiting
  • Hair loss
  • Fatigue

Most of these side effects are temporary. Be sure to talk with your treatment team members about any side effects you experience. They can help you find ways to manage them.
