In brief: Many things

Hot flashes can be due to certain medications, thyroid or other endocrine problems, or to certain types of cancer, like lymphoma.
Sometimes women experience hot flashes due to hormone swings in the 40s when the periods are still fairly normal. See your doctor for an accurate diagnosis.
