HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) increases breast cancer risk

Yes, you were right: HRT the way our doctor prescribes it "can" increase your risk of breast cancer. If you were one of the millions of women who refused to take HRT, or questioned your doctor about it, or felt queasy about taking it because you were afraid of getting breast cancer, you were right. To all the women who intuitively felt it was risky to take HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) but did anyway because their doctors insisted that the benefits outweighed the risks, you were right. And to all the women who took HR against their own better judgment and then got breast cancer, this is a great opportunity to search your female friends and relatives to trust their own judgment, to trust their intuition, to trust that sense of unease when you know something isn't right. HRT (hormone replacement therapy) can increase your risk of breast cancer).

HRT is not the same as BHRT (Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy). BHRT uses natural hormones, whereby HRT uses synthetic hormones.

Hormone therapy is use of hormone in medical treatment. Treatment with hormone antagonists may also referred to as hormonal therapy. A lot of hormone therapy may help this example.
