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.

The Ask-the-Expert Online Conference called Updates From the 2008 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium featured Ruth Oratz, M.D., F.A.C.P. and Carol Kaplan, M.D. answering your questions about the latest updates on breast cancer risk, screening techniques, treatment options, and more.

Editor's Note: This conference took place in December 2008.
