This paper is about treatment-induced menopause after cancer care. It highlights how treatment-induced menopause can lead to more severe symptoms than natural menopause and these are often overlooked during cancer care – especially in LMICs.
The results from this study indicate that the AI-based risk assessment predicts later stage breast cancers as high risk among women who currently are sent at home with a negative mammogram.
