Breast Cancer and HRTs

What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a prescription treatment that replaces a woman's natural hormone production with synthetically made hormones.

There are two types of hormone replacement therapies, Estrogen-based and Combination therapy. Estrogen HRT are usually reserved for women who have had hysterectomies. Combination therapy is the most commonly prescribed HRT and includes estrogen and progestin, the synthetic form of progesterone. Both forms of HRT have associated cancer risks.



Side effects of hormone replacement therapy can include:

  • Monthly bleeding
  • Irregular spotting
  • Breast tenderness
  • Fluid retention
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Skin irritation and discoloration (black or brown spots)
  • Increased breast density

Sadly, 1 in 50 women taking combined HRTs will get breast cancer.

For decades, women were prescribed HRTs to help relieve menopause symptoms. But, in 2002 and 2004, the Women's Health Initiative study (WHI), found that those who started hormone therapy shortly after menopause had a significantly increased risk of invasive breast cancer. And, the longer women used HRTs, the higher their risk became.

More recent findings in the Lancet Journal in 2019, report that cancer risks from HRTs are double what the WHI once thought. Moreover, the risk of cancer does not go away after women stop taking HRTs.
