Ask-the-Expert Online Conference

Question from Charlene: Dr. Hartmann, I have recently been diagnosed with estrogen-receptor-positive cancer. My daughter has been on birth control pills for the past five years. Should we consider having her stop taking them?
Answers - Lynn Hartmann There are good studies available now that do not show an increase in risk of breast cancer in women who take birth control pills. I think that it is safe for your daughter to continue to use the pill.
