Will chemotherapy damage a young woman’s ability to have children? Can a woman who’s had breast cancer take hormone therapy to relieve menopause symptoms?
Women at risk for breast, ovarian and other reproductive cancers can easily find a bewildering, and sometimes frightening, array of information, treatment options, and anecdotes. Putting it all in perspective, two female physicians who specialize in the area are teaming up to provide a free lecture and Q&A session on the topics.
Jennifer Knudtson, M.D., a reproductive endocrinology and infertility fellow in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology in the School of Medicine at the UT Health Science Center, and Georgia McCann, M.D., a CTRC oncologist and clinical assistant professor in the same department, will lay out the latest treatment options and the issue of fertility preservation for younger women. They will also explain hormone treatment options, explaining the concerns that arose with the Women’s Health Initiative data and breast cancer rates, as well as who is really at risk and what other options are available.
