Menopause and you: the aging breast

Lankenau Medical Center August 22, 2012 Menopause and You By Beverly Vaughn, MD

It is not just about the estrogen. Breasts change throughout a woman’s life. Dr. Emily Pollard educates us that there are many components to breast structure and each can be affected as women age. She gives us important information about personal care of the breast and a thorough discussion of the surgical options.

This article is part of Menopause and You, a web-based program sponsored by Women’s Health Source. It is intended as an information resource providing guidelines for women. As always, check with your own health care provider with your specific concerns and questions.
