Study Looks At Clinical Trial That Tested Estrogen-Plus-Progestin Combination

I debated about including this article on the blog because I didn't want to cause unnecessary concern-----but I chose to include it as an exercise in careful reading. Please note that the article clearly states that women who are on an HRT protocol of estrogen and PROGESTIN (which is NOT the same as bioidentical progesterone----even though a lot of so called medical professionals use the terms interchangeably) who develop sudden breast tenderness are at a higher risk for breast cancer. As always, talk over any concerns about breast tenderness or any other symptom with your health care provider, and do regular self exams and get a regular mamogram. Have a healthy day!
