If you and your doctor decided against hormone replacement therapy, in your case, you might be reassured by new information released Wednesday.
The study in the New England Journal of Medicine strengthens the theory that there is a link between breast cancer and HRT's. For some women, stopping hormone replacement may be the best prevention.
You remember when the HRT warning was first issued a few years ago, millions of women stopped taking hormone replacement. The journal report says that since then there has been a decline in breast cancer cases. Scientists believe that hormones may feed the growth of tumors.
