Tests to diagnose chemo brain?


Question from CarlaG: What kinds of tests can a person take to find out for sure if she has chemo brain?
Answers - Christina Meyers I have to protect my trade here, but you have to go to a neuropsychologist who knows how to test for brain function.
George Sledge, M.D. That's an important point. Your medical oncologist or internist may be able to tell you what it's NOT, but you need a neuropsychologist to tell you what it is.

On Wednesday, October 15, 2008, our Ask-the-Expert Online Conference was called Managing Chemo Brain. Christina Meyers, Ph.D., A.B.P.P. and George Sledge, M.D. answered your questions about how long chemo brain can last, what treatments can be helpful, and current research on cognitive effects of breast cancer treatment.
