Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for survivors?


Question from Jan: Is there any news about bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for breast cancer survivors?
Answers - Ruth Oratz, M.D., F.A.C.P. This conference did not present any new data about bioidentical hormone therapy. However, women should be strongly cautioned that bioidentical hormones are hormones and they carry the same increased risk of breast cancer as any other form of hormone replacement therapy.

On Wednesday, December 17, 2008, our Ask-the-Expert Online Conference was called Updates from the 2008 San Antonio Breast Cancer SymposiumRuth Oratz, M.D., F.A.C.P. and Carol Kaplan, M.D. answered your questions about the latest updates on breast cancer risk, screening techniques, treatment options, and more.
