Many people are living longer with cancer because of major advances in diagnosis and screening as well as better treatments. But cancer treatment can have an impact on memory, sometimes referred to as “chemobrain.”
From NIHSeniorHealth.gov you can learn how cancer treatment can affect memory and find tips to help improve memory and concentration after cancer treatment, see https://nnlm.gov/bhic/lzjx.
The information on Surviving Cancer and memory was developed for NIHSeniorHealth by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) at NIH.
