Palbociclib and Hair Loss


I have recently been diagnosed with SBC in ribs, hip and spine, with possible lung mets. I have been given Anastrozole and will be starting Palbociclib on Friday. One of the side-effects states hair loss. Do you lose all of your hair, or does it just get thinner? Would I need a wig? (Not a lot of time to get one)!

Many thanks

Hi, At the most you might get a bit of hair thinning. For most ladies I know, including myself, it hasn’t affected our hair at all. I’ve still got the same thick hair I had before starting treatment. It does maybe grow a bit slower but I’ve found that to be a positive as I’ve needed my hair cutting less xx
