The tough time when women are facing menopausal syndromes can be really tough to deal with. A new research is of the view that if women use any sort of hormone treatments to ease these symptoms, it might tend to have a negative effect on them. So much so that it might tend to raise their risk of breast cancer.
There are a number of physical and hormonal changes that a woman goes through while menopause. This is a huge time of transition, and there are a number of effects it might tend to have on their bodies. This is why many women turn towards hormones such as progestin and estrogen for the treatment of the same. However it has been revealed that using these might raise the risk of breast cancer.
The new study is of the view that if these pills are taken for a long period time, a couple of years, it might tend to have a very negative impact on the woman's health, and might put her to a while new increased risk of cancer.
"Mortality is decreasing as screening programmes are finding breast cancer earlier and treatments are improving. Also, breast cancer in older women tend to be less aggressive and so, as the world's population ages, more of these milder cancers are emerging", said Dr Richard Reyes, Consultant Breast and General Surgeon, the conference chairman.
There is need for care and precaution to be taken in this regard and the women undergoing such changes need to consult doctors before deciding for themselves which hormones they need to take.
This would mean safety for the overall health and wellness and maintain sound health in the time to come.
