Event description

Description

Join us for a talk by Dr. Mindy Goldman on managing the effects of surgically- or treatment-induced menopause.

This talk will be of particular interest to those women who:

  • Are considering risk-reducing (add hyphen) surgery to remove their ovaries due to an increased risk of ovarian cancer from a genetic risk factor, such as a mutation BRCA1 or BRCA2

  • Are currently undergoing cancer treatment

  • Have long –term gynecologic side effects from cancer treatment

There will be a Q&A following Dr. Goldman's talk.

Dr. Goldman specializes in women's health care and gynecology issues for cancer patients and those at risk for cancer. She is the Director of the Gynecology Center for Cancer Survivors and At-Risk Women which is jointly sponsored by UCSF's Carol Franc Buck Breast Care Center and the National Center of Excellence in Women's Health. She is a member of the Helen Diller Comprehensive Cancer Center and works closely with cancer specialists to help ease the gynecologic side effects of cancer treatment. Her clinical expertise focuses on a variety of topics, including fertility options, safety of pregnancy, side effects of breast cancer hormonal therapies (like tamoxifen and aromatase inhibitors), management options for chemotherapy or treatment induced menopause, vaginal dryness/sexual dysfunction and surgeries to remove ovaries when indicated. She also sees women with other cancer types focusing on similar survivorship issues as well as women with hereditary cancer syndromes, focusing on screening and prevention strategies.


Light refreshments will be provided.
