Some birth control raises risk of breast cancer, study says

Some birth control raises risk of breast cancer, study says Breast Cancer: Birth Control May Increase Risk By Up To 38 Percent

A study published Wednesday has linked newer-generation birth control pills with breast cancer; the link had already been established for older variants of hormonal contraception.

Overall, there was one extra case of breast cancer for every 7,600 women using hormonal contraception for a year.

At mbg, we've been asking questions about the birth control pill for years. For starters, a lot more research needs to be done on the long-term effects of all types of birth control.

Hopes that different formulations would remove a longstanding danger to women are dashed by a new study.

One thing reiterated by every doctor Newsweek spoke to: Women who are anxious about how their contraception might increase their risk of breast cancer should speak with their health care provider. After all, it means that almost a quarter of American women are doing something that might increase their risk of developing breast cancer by a third-in theory. "But the same elevated risk is there". The study's published in The New England Journal of Medicine, and NPR's Patti Neighmond has our report. And the longer the women used hormonal methods, she says, the higher their risk. "It's important that women feel confident and comfortable with their contraceptive choice", he said.

Not only that, but there are plenty of non-hormonal birth control options to consider, like the non-hormonal IUD, diaphragm and condoms - and let's not forget vasectomies. "The range of risks we're talking about here is much much smaller", she said.

"There was a hope that the contemporary preparations would be associated with lower risk", he said in an interview.

"Most of the cases that occurred in this analysis occurred among women who were using oral contraceptives in their 40s", Hunter adds. The number of women in the United States with intrauterine devices, many of which release hormones, has grown in recent years, as has the number of women using other types of hormonal contraceptive implants.

Lindegaard speculated that the hormones in birth control may trigger certain cells that are ready to turn into cancer, he said, given that the risk seems to increase after only a few months of use. Yet the new study found increased risks that were similar in magnitude to the heightened risks reported in earlier studies based on birth control pills used in the 1980s and earlier, Hunter said. However, it was commonly thought that the newer low-dose estrogen options significantly decreased - or even eliminated - that risk.

Despite the risk, women will continue to use the pharmaceuticals, Morch said. "It is a very clear picture for us, very convincing".

The paper did not make any note of whether birth control impacted mortality from breast cancer, Leath noted. They reduce the risk of endometrial cancer. Age, family history and weight gain later in life all contribute to breast cancer risk. And there's a strong suggestion they also reduce the risk of colorectal cancer. The illness is fairly rare among women in the age group studied.

Specifically, the study found that it may be the hormone progestin - a key component of many of today's hormonal contraceptives - that is behind the breast cancer risk. Because their set of data was very large, scientists this time were also able to get a good sense of the impact of various other hormonal methods - including the birth control patch, the ring, and implants as well as hormone-releasing IUDs. But that's not what this study found.
