Constipation

Cancer treatments, medications, lack of fiber, fluids, and movements, can often cause constipation. If you experience constipation, check with your doctor or nurse before using over-the-counter laxatives, stool softeners or enemas.

Oncology certified registered nurses and registered dietitians are available to help with symptom management at the Abramson Cancer Center.
