Author information

  • 1University of Glasgow, United Kingdom.


Menopause is beginning to be recognized as a survivorship issue for women with a diagnosis of breast cancer. This article presents an outline of the literature relating to natural menopause and its symptoms, moves on to discuss general management of menopausal symptoms, then reflects on the particular implications of breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. Finally, the role of nursing in restoring a holistic perspective to the subject of menopause generally, and to women with breast cancer specifically, is considered.
