Taking Hormone Therapy? Don’t Panic

I know that my patients and their friends are an internet and media savvy group. As such, I am sure they are aware of the recently released JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) article that dealt with the incidence of breast cancer in patients undergoing long-term follow-up in the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) studies. This study was released several years ago after analyzing the results of giving hormone replacement therapy (HRT) in the form of synthetic Progestins (progesterone-like molecules) and Estrogens (Premarin) derived from horse urine which are most definitely NOT the same as human estrogen. Ultimately the study was discontinued because of the statistically increased incidence of cardiovascular disease and uterine cancer. The most recent data analysis looks at the incidence of breast cancer and it’s complications in women from the original study who were followed for an additional 4 years. The results showed that there was a significantly increased incidence of breast cancer as well as the metastatic consequences of those cancers in the women who were given the synthetic hormones.
