Abstract/OtherAbstract:
There are no reports of adjuvant treatments for early breast cancer causing hearing loss. Yet in this exploratory study 14/16 women who had received Fluorouracil, Epirubicin and Cyclophosphamide (FEC) chemotherapy regimen, 11 of whom also received endocrine treatment, had reduced hearing sensitivity, with 9/16 being atypical. It is not clear whether this finding is related to oestrogen reduction and/or ototoxicity but a more detailed investigation in this area is warranted given the large number of women with breast cancer who receive adjuvant treatments.
