Treatment for cancer can lead to menopause happening earlier in a woman’s life than would normally be expected. Early menopause may be associated with a complex mix of physical, emotional, psychological and social changes and challenges.

– Adjunct Clinical Associate Professor Amanda Vincent, Endocrinologist and Head, Early Menopause Studies, Monash Centre for Health Research and Implementation, Monash University.
