Earlier hormone therapy elevates risk of breast cancer
from The New York Times
Growing evidence about the risks of breast cancer and other serious illnesses posed by hormone therapy for menopause has led many women to give up the drugs, and many doctors to stop recommending them. But there has been a lingering belief that for younger women in the early stages of menopause, hormone risks may be negligible, at least for a while. So those who are really suffering from hot flashes, insomnia and other symptoms are often told that it is probably all right to take the drugs, as long as they use the lowest possible dose for the shortest possible time.
