CAN CHEMOTHERAPY CAUSE PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY?

Chemotherapy Induced Peripheral Neuropathy (CIPN) Between 60% to 90% of patients undergoing chemotherapy will develop peripheral neuropathy.

Peripheral neuropathy is damage to the nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord (your brain and spinal cord are called the central nervous system). These distant nerves are called peripheral nerves. They carry sensations (feeling) to the brain and control the movement of our arms and legs. They also control the bladder and bowel.

Some of the chemotherapy and other drugs used to treat cancer can damage peripheral nerves. When this happens it is called chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN). This can be a disabling side effect of cancer treatment
