Painful mouth ulcers (oral mucositis) and taste alterations (dysgeusia) are common side effects of cancer treatment. Mucositis can effect 20% to 100% of patients and can persist for 2 to 3 weeks after treatment completion, causing eating difficulties and food avoidance due to the painful ulcers and putting patients with oral mucositis at a higher risk of malnutrition.
Food aversions and loss of appetite are also common in the 50% to 100% of treated patients who have loss of taste and changes in taste, known as dysgeusia.
