Risk of Breast Cancer Overestimated with Hormone Replacement Therapy(HRT) Treatment

5th August, 2005. Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is commonly advocated in menopausal woman. However taking this hormone treatment could be associated with increased chances of breast cancer and recently anxiety has been expressed.

In a study published in British Medical Journal// the cumulative risk of such a cancer developing in woman on HRT is low and not as high as was previously reported.

A team from New South Wales Breast Cancer Institute looked at the current data and estimated risk of breast cancer up to age 79 years in relation to hormone replacement therapy. This calculation is called the cumulative absolute risk.

The study found that the risk was higher when both estrogen and progesterone was used but very low when estrogen alone was used for five years.

"Although we found the additional breast cancer risk with hormone replacement therapy for an individual is very small, the effect on the general incidence of breast cancer would be greater, especially in populations with high levels of use," said Professor John Boyages, the Director of the Institute.

The conclusion drawn was: "The reasons for taking hormone replacement therapy vary and decisions about its use must be made at an individual level. Our analysis provides women and clinicians with better information to make these choices,".
