Good afternoon. “I want to ask, can Chemo cause a stroke?”

1 Answer:

Hi Syalman, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

Chemo is an abbreviation often used to describe chemotherapy, which is the administration of drugs to fight cancer cells. Chemo itself is not a disease name. There are various types of chemotherapy given to various types of cancer. Some types of chemotherapy are known to increase the risk of blood clots forming in the blood vessels (normally blood is in liquid form in the blood vessels and will only clot if there is damage or injury to the blood vessels). These blood clots can break off and block the flow of blood in small blood vessels anywhere. When a blood clot blocks a blood vessel in the brain, an ischemic stroke can occur. However, blood clots that form in patients receiving chemotherapy are not always caused by chemotherapy drugs themselves. Cancer can also increase the risk of developing blood clots in the blood vessels and other comorbid conditions can also increase the risk of stroke in people receiving chemotherapy. Therefore, if a stroke occurs in people who receive chemotherapy, it is necessary to find out more about the risk factors that can cause the stroke.

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
