AbstractBreast cancer is the commonest malignancy affecting females. Hormone-positive cancers carry a better prognosis. Many adjuvant and palliative endocrine therapies are in use, including surgical ablation. We retrospectively studied seventy-four patients who did bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (BSO)/bilateral oophorectomy (BO) for factors affecting survival and prognosis.

Surgical hormonal ablation is a viable option with laparoscopic BSO as the approach of choice.

Implications Efforts should be pursued to adapt CBT-E and develop other nonpharmacological interventions, in order to provide an alternative to pharmacotherapy for sleep-wake difficulties in this population.
