Want to know more about HRT and breast cancer?

If you’ve had breast cancer and are wondering what your treatment options are for menopausal symptoms, this booklet is for you.

You may have been told that hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is not an option for you, or perhaps you have not had the opportunity to discuss what your options are. This booklet covers: symptoms you might have, treatment options including HRT, the risks and benefits of treatment when there’s a history of breast cancer, plus lifestyle changes to help you manage symptoms.

The aim of this booklet is to give you the information to help you decide what is right for you in conversations with your health professional, and of changes you might want to make in the future.

This booklet has been written by healthcare professionals and there have also been valued reviews and contributions from women affected by breast cancer.
