Dr Sarah Ball and Dr Alison Macbeth discuss the challenges of endocrine treatment and the significant impact this has on the patients they see. They also answer some of our listeners' questions, such as the use of HRT with Tamoxifen and we discuss vaginal oestrogen whilst on Tamoxifen and vaginal oestrogen whilst on aromatase inhibitors.

Dr Sarah Ball has a special interest in women with a past history of cancer and a history of Histamine Intolerance.

Dr Alison MacBeth is a breast speciality doctor who has set up a menopause clinic within her NHS breast unit in Glasgow.

They both work in a private practice too. Links are below.

About Dani:

The Menopause and Cancer Podcast is hosted by Dani Binnington, menopause guide, patients advocate for people in menopause after a cancer diagnosis, and founder of the online platform Healthy Whole Me. 

There is lots of information out there about the menopause but hardly any if you have had a cancer diagnosis as well. Many people say to me they have no idea what their options are, who to ask for help, and that they feel really isolated in their experiences. 

I started this podcast because there was nothing out there when I was thrown into surgical menopause at the age of 39, which followed on from my cancer diagnosis aged 33.

Through the episodes, I want to create more awareness, share information from our fabulous guest experts, doctors and other specialists in the cancer and menopause field. 

And of course, I will share stories from the people in our community.

So that together we can work towards a better menopause experience. For all of us.

More educated, better informed and less alone.
