With Hormone Therapy, Tender Breasts May Signal Cancer Risk

trogens (0.625 milligrams) plus medroxyprogesterone acetate (2.5 milligrams).

The findings apply only to women taking the combination therapy, not women who've had hysterectomies and are taking estrogen alone, Crandall said.

In a statement, Wyeth Pharmaceuticals, which makes the estrogen-progestin therapy Prempro, called the study "interesting" but added that, "breast tenderness is not an established risk factor for breast cancer." According to the company, up to a quarter of women who take combination hormone therapy will develop some tenderness in the breast, typically transient. The company also noted that the "small" increase in breast cancer risk for women on combo therapy and those on placebo, "has previously been reported and is included in the Prescribing Information (labeling) for Prempro."
