I had a port with herceptin (trastuzumab) that leaked. What damage did that do?

I had a port with herceptin (trastuzumab) that leaked. What damage did that do?

No damage!: Herceptin (trastuzumab) is a biologic therapy, which is not really chemotherapy. It is formulated to be safe inside your veins and tissues, so the only side effect of it leaking out of your port is some extra fluid in the skin and tissues around your port. Your body will absorb this easily, so no harm done! Read more
