Guide to Menopause, Hysterectomy, and Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
Dr. N’s Guide to Menopause, Hysterectomy and Hormone Replacement Therapy
Does Hormone Replacement Therapy increase the risk of breast cancer?
The perception that hormone replacement therapy increases the risk of breast cancer is without merit. It is primarily based on misinformation communicated to the media and health professionals by a seemingly reliable source the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI). The WHI was a long-term national health study sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. The results of the WHI Estrogen Plus Progestin (E+P) Trial in women who had not had a hysterectomy was published in the July 17, 2002 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). It is clear that the writers group of the NIH-sponsored project misrepresented their study findings as the data collected in the trial did not support this conclusion.
