is it true that taking the pill increases your chance of getting breast cancer?


charlotte_webb

i dont think so coz breast cancer is genetic...


CaraLSmith

Up to now it's still not proven. Some studies show that women who use oral contraceptives (OC) have a higher chance of developing breast cancer than those who don't. Other studies say it didn't matter whether a woman used OC or not. So its a split. Its inconsistent.

I thought the hormones in the pill PREVENT breast cancer???

Saw and article in cancer dot gov that says that there is a relationship between breast cancer and birth control pills.

ive heard about the pill in connection with stroke or blod clots but not about breast cancer.

I googled this and got mixed findings. Some say yes, some say no!!


emily45

Well, its certainly confusing. But my sources are all yes.
