Cognitive issues same in younger women?


Question from Kathy: Are younger women experiencing this cognitive difficulty at the same rate as older women?
Answers - Patricia A. Ganz, M.D. That's an excellent question. We really haven't had large enough studies of women of all ages to answer this question. My clinical impression is, though, that this is more common in women less than 55 years of age.

On Wednesday, August 16, 2006, our Ask-the-Expert Online Conference was called Thinking and Memory ChallengesPatricia A. Ganz, M.D. and  moderator Marisa Weiss, M.D. answered your questions about the memory and concentration challenges that can happen during and after breast cancer treatment.
