Answer by doodlebuttus
There are certain types of breast cancer that put you at a greater risk.

My mom has breast cancer, and it is an aggressive, estrogen-fed cancer. It puts me at a greatly increased risk, as it may have been the hereditary type. That means I have to avoid any estrogen birth control because I am at a greatly increased risk of developing breast cancer. Women with the BRCA1 mutation (a hereditary risk factor) have a 20% increase in breast cancer when using estrogen birth control.

Since we don’t know what breast cancer my mom had, I have to avoid it to be safe.

I hope that made sense.

Why hasn’t this come out before? My mother died from breast cancer 11 years ago. I did my research at that time & refused using this. Doctors were still pushing it at that time. Are the drug companies THAT powerful?

Henn asked:


I was reading from other website that soy contains phytoestrogen and said that prevent cancer. However, another website said that soy produce estrogen and have higher risk of breast cancer. I Dont really understand. I know that some fruits also contain estrogen, such as apple.

Male breast cancer questions and symptoms?

Forsaken Dissolver asked:


Pretty much, at this point I’m getting concerned. I’m sixteen years old, so I already understand the risk is most likely low for someone my age but hear me out here.

First off, I’ve searched into male breast cancer and already know the chances are about less than 1% that it would be it, and that it was most likely a hormonal thing with puberty, but something like that was supposed to clear up at 2 to 3 weeks at most, yet, it’s been several months now.

The symptoms are something along the lines of this: under my left nipple there was recently a lump that formed that was initially painful. The pain quickly subsided and the hard, lump feeling remained there, but stayed underneath the nipple. Also, when it’s messed with or squeezed, a small amount of clear fluid comes out.

So I don’t really know what it is at this point or if I should go get it checked out, but I’m hoping that I can get a professional opinion about it and wanted to see some opinions
oh yeah…..kev…….fuck off.
