Almost all persons exposed to life saving measures like chemotherapy report short-term memory loss, difficulty concentrating etc., but the majority of them improve after a while. Yet 15 percent of these persons do not, and experts do not know why. These people go on to have typical cognitive symptoms like forgetfulness, distraction etc.

Oncologists suggest chemo brain could be due to very high doses of chemotherapy; like those before a bone marrow transplant, or the combination of chemotherapy and supplementary hormonal treatments, like tamoxifen or aromatase inhibitors that lower the amount of estrogen in women who have cancers fueled by female hormones, as well as early-onset cancer that catapults women in their 30s and 40s into menopause.
