Part 1: When Cancer Treatment Causes Menopause - The Physical Impact
November 14, 2022
In this two-part series, we will discuss both the physical and emotional impact of menopause that is caused by cancer treatment. Join us for Part 1, which explores the physical impact.
For women who have not reached menopause naturally before their diagnosis, some cancer treatments can cause early or sudden menopause. Join Marisa Cortese-Peske, Nurse Practicioner at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center to learn more about which treatments are likely to lead to menopause, the difference between medical vs. surgical menopause, how to recognize symptoms, and much more! You’ll also hear directly from patients about their experience with cancer treatment-related menopause, and be given strategies to lessen your symptoms and improve your quality of life.
Key takeaways from webinar viewers:
- Regular exercise and being active can help with having hot flashes.
- To report side effects of menopause to your care team for solutions
- Care to combat symptoms of menopause can be personalized as not every person will experience the same side effects.
