HRT: Cancer risk continues three years after stopping drug
About the author:

Women who take HRT (hormone replacement therapy) are more likely to develop breast cancer even three years after they have stopped treatment

Women who take HRT (hormone replacement therapy) are more likely to develop breast cancer even three years after they have stopped treatment.

Their risk is 27 per cent higher than it would be for a woman who hadn't taken the drug, while overall cancer risk is 24 per cent greater.

These latest findings come from the Women's Health Initiative study, which was stopped early after it discovered a cancer risk for women who were still taking the drug.
