Breast cancer studies on Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
In an article published in Contemporary ObGyn on 9/26/2013 researchers at the University of Chicago studied the risk of breast cancer in women taking Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT).
There was a greater than 20% increase in the risk among white, Asian, and Hispanic women taking HRT but not in black women. Risk was the highest among thin and normal weight women with mammographically dense breasts. Risk was not increased in overweight and obese women.
