Common side effects of treatment

The type of side effects and their severity varies from person to person, depending on the type of treatment used and how an individual responds to it. There is no doubt that side effects can be very unpleasant at times, but it’s good to remember that most of them are temporary and reversible. It is important that you report any side-effects you are experiencing to your nurse or doctor because many of them can be treated successfully, reducing any unnecessary discomfort for you. It is important that you contact your doctor or the hospital for advice immediately (at any time of the day or night) if you are feeling very unwell.
