Shownotes

Dr Rebecca Glaser retired from breast cancer surgery and is currently involved in research on testosterone therapy by pellet implant and has evaluated and treated over 1500 breast cancer patients. Her research publications have been extensively cited (over 2400 citations) and in this episode, she explains all her findings on the use of testosterone with an aromatase inhibitor in breast cancer patients.

Dr Glaser’s work is not mainstream practice but more and more women have asked us to speak about this and so we hope this episode will help you have an informed conversation with your own medical team.

We discuss:

Oestrogen vs testosterone in women - this might surprise you

Why a testosterone implant vs. transdermal testosterone?

Testosterone after breast cancer: what do we know?

Testosterone with an Aromatase Inhibitor

Benefits and side effects?

Benefits of overall survival rates

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.
