The Pill linked to breast cancer risk for younger women

An illustration picture shows a woman holding a pill at her home in NiceBy Kathryn Doyle NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – A new statistical analysis finds that women under age 50 who were diagnosed with breast cancer were also more likely to have recently been on some versions of the Pill. The increased cancer risk still translates to less than a one percent chance of developing breast cancer for most younger women, researchers emphasize, so the results should not outweigh the many benefits of taking oral contraceptives. These results are not enough to change clinical practice or to discourage any women from taking birth control pills, said lead study author Elizabeth F. Beaber, of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington. Some past research suggests that the hormones in birth control pills could “feed” hormone-sensitive tumors and thereby raise younger women’s risk of a breast cancer diagnosis, or of developing more aggressive cancers (see Reuters Health article of February 26, 2013 here: reut.rs/1s8tM44).

Naperville resident feels younger with hormone therapy

A treatment to reverse the effects of aging? Naperville resident John Freiburger thinks so. The 48-year-old began hormone therapy to replace testosterone loss after a severe bout with the Epstein-Barr virus several years ago. The improvements have convinced him the treatment is worth seeking. “It increased my energy level and my ability to concentrate,” Freiburger says. “It’s been beneficial to my sexual health. And I’ve put on muscle.” Male hormone-replacement therapy is used to treat symptoms caused by reduced testosterone production, a common condition among older men. Symptoms such as: depression and irritability, low libido and erectile dysfunction, lack of focus, and exercise becoming ineffective at controlling weight and building muscle. The Mayo Clinic notes testosterone production levels drop by 1 percent each year after the age of 30. This explains why hormone therapy is often seen as an anti-aging treatment. Until recently, doctors have discouraged many patients from getting testosterone therapy because of the perceived increased risk of prostate cancer. Dr. Paul Savage, chief medical director at Ageology in Chicago, dismisses this misconception. “Testosterone doesn’t cause prostate cancer,” Savage said. “However, low testosterone does increase the risk of death not only from heart disease but all causes.” A recent study by German endocrinologists showed that hormone-replacement therapy among men improved symptoms of metabolic syndrome — a syndrome that increases the risk of heart disease and Type 2 diabetes, among other complications. But while the use of this therapy is on the rise, Savage notes many men with lowered hormone levels still go untreated. “Only about 5 percent of …
