Thinking and memory (cognition)

Cancer treatment can affect the way you think, your memory, or your ability to concentrate.

The combination of medical treatment, fatigue, and stress can make it hard to think normally. This often improves after treatment has stopped, but can often be managed with special strategies if it persists or causes problems.
