Cancer and temperature

I’m having  this temperature for about 6 weeks now but blood tests are showing no infection  I’m on three weekly Cadcyla chemo treatment

 now I’m worried why the temperature is not going away 

  • Hello and thanks for your post

    It's understandable to be worried about a persistent elevated temperature especially when undergoing chemotherapy.

    Kadcyla can cause various side effects including a temperature. A persistent low grade temperature might be a response to the drug itself as you don't have an infection. Sometimes the body's reaction to the drug can cause a temperature without any underlying infection.

    The best thing to do is to talk this concern over with your chemotherapy team. Hopefully, they will be able to reassure you and put this into context for you.

    I hope this is of some help. Give us a ring if you would like to talk anything over.  The number to call is Freephone 0808 800 4040 and the lines are open from 9am till 5pm Monday to Friday.

    Kind regards,
