More about cancer-induced peripheral neuropathy

First Aired: October 27, 2013

Our thanks to Dr. Cindy Tofthagen for returning to That Cancer Show™ to continue our discussion about the impact of cancer-induced peripheral neuropathy. The sense of touch might be affected by a tumor compressing on and/or infiltrating the peripheral nerves as well as from the cancer therapies including surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Dr. Tofthagen shares information about clinical research studies, the impact of nutrition and other insights.

Dr. Tofthagen is an assistant professor of nursing at the University of South Florida in Tampa and has 20 years experience as a nurse specializing in cancer treatment. She also leads a Neuropathy Association support group in Tampa, Florida, helping people with neuropathy and their family and friends better understand the disease and find support.
