Breast Treatment Complications


Alopecia or hair loss, is a distressing chemotherapy-induced side effect which may significantly affect cancer patient’s self-image, self-esteem, and overall emotional well-being.

Union Oncology Centre is equipped with a PAXMAN's scalp cooling system which can help cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy by reducing hair loss. Scalp cooling involves wearing a specially designed cap that cools the scalp before, during, and after chemotherapy infusion, thus constricting the blood vessels and reducing the amount of chemotherapy drugs that reach the hair follicles. This process can help minimize the damage and subsequent hair loss during chemotherapy treatment.

Cancer Cachexia

Cancer treatments can cause changes in appetite and metabolism, leading to changes on weight, which may impact the physical function and quality of life. Meanwhile, surgery or radiation therapy for cancers in certain areas of the body, such as breast cancer, can disrupt the lymphatic system and lead to lymphedema. ​

Union Oncology Centre is equipped with Tanika Body Composition Analyzer, its features include body fat analysis, muscle mass evaluation, water content assessment, BMR calculation, and progress tracking. This information is critical for understanding the impact of cancer and its treatments on weight, nutrition, and overall health. It empowers healthcare professionals to customize treatment plans, optimize nutrition support, and make informed decisions.
