    Will I lose my hair from whatever treatment my doctors recommend?

    Hair loss may occur with some, but not all chemotherapy. It will not result from hormone therapy or radiation. If you lose your hair, it may be that your straight hair will grow back curly, or that it will come back in a different shade. You may find you have a different head of hair and you may enjoy it.
