The topic of the half hour long podcast titled “Menopause HRT, and cancer” was older women’s health and Steinar Tretli was interviewed in the last part of the programme.
The background for the podcast is a recent study by researchers at the Cancer Registry of Norway and the Universities in Trondheim and Tromsø published in the British Medical Journal.
