Description/Abstract

Many women who are treated for breast cancer will subsequently undergo the menopause, either as a result of cancer treatment or as a natural process. For this group of women hormone replacement therapy is currently not recommended and so women lose a major option to help control menopausal symptoms. The extent of this problem has not been widely researched and alternative methods of coping with menopause in this group have not been explored. This paper reviews the menopause in relation to these women and suggests avenues for future research.
