The Little Book of Menopause Living with the Challenges of Breast Cancer
Item #: TLBOM-BC
Category:  Our Books
By Woods, Warner, Bonham. Description: Becoming a breast cancer survivor often involves menopause. Yet, every woman experiencing breast cancer care that is complicated by menopausal symptoms only wants to feel normal. She asks how to be treated for menopausal symptoms. She also may be haunted by concerns about the psychology of living with breast cancer, the role of her partner, her response to lymphedema and cognitive impairment (chemobrain), her need for exercise, and the challenge of sleep. Or, she may want clarification of how to preserve her reproductive capabilities during treatments, risks of a pregnancy after breast cancer, and whether breastfeeding is possible. Fortunately, new insights into these cancer-related questions allow gynecologists to understand these concerns and serve as part of the cancer-care team. We hope that care providers will find this Little Book contribution to the breast cancer literature a useful resource for their office and for their patients.
