It's Now Possible To Keep Your Hair During Chemo

This new procedure is making it a little bit easier to deal with cancer treatment

Cancer patients who are undergoing chemo no longer have to suffer hair loss. A new cooling treatment, called the Dignicap, is placed on the head during chemo and protects the hair follicle by reducing blood flow. The process can be expensive, sometimes up to $600, but so far it's been very effective and has helped cancer patients feel a little more comfortable throughout their treatment.
