Cancer Treatment and Hearing Loss: The Facts.


There is a lot of misinformation surrounding cancer treatment and hearing loss. We set the record straight and can help to find a solution.

Certain chemotherapy medications and radiation therapy have been linked to hearing loss in a number of patients following cancer treatment.

Platinum-based chemotherapy treatments are considered to have the most detrimental effect on patient hearing. Radiation therapy to the head, ear or brain, or surgery in this area can also impact your hearing ability.

However, you don’t have to put up with impaired hearing as a result of cancer treatment. There are a number of treatment options available including hearing aids, which have been proven to help most patients who experience hearing loss.
