Cancer Related Cognitive Dysfunction
Cancer related cognitive dysfunction is a condition that affects many who undergo chemotherapy. It can come in many forms, but oftentimes it's feeling foggy headed, having poor memory, trouble concentrating, having trouble finding words, short attention span, word-finding problems, or having trouble multi-tasking.
