Female hair loss treatments due to illness

Hoping someone can point me in the right direction here :-

Basically my Mum has cancer and currently NOT taking any chemo or radiotherapy. However as a result of her cancer her hair has begun to fall out to a point where she now wears a wig. Other than 2% minoxidil I am not aware.of any other treatments for females - does anyone know if there are any other FDA approved treatments/preventions? Other option of course is a HT but unsure whether the hair loss is temp or permanant so this may/maynot be an option.

Only looking for suggestions so she can consult and share these with her Doctors. Ive already told her not to take any hair loss type drugs until she has consulted with the docs.


Appreciate any comments.
