Cancer Home > Hand-Foot Reaction From Regorafenib
Although regorafenib (Stivarga®) can be an effective chemotherapy treatment for treating certain cases of colorectal cancer, it may cause problems in some people.
For instance, some people may develop a condition known as hand-foot skin reaction from using regorafenib. Hand-foot skin reaction can cause burning, pain, redness, swelling, bleeding, sores, or blisters on the palms of the hands or soles of the feet.
Let your healthcare provider know if you develop any of these symptoms or experience a skin rash during regorafenib treatment.
