Female Hormones Replacement may make Lung Cancer more Fatal

ORLANDO, Fla. – There's more troubling news about hormone therapy for menopause symptoms: Lung cancer seems more likely to prove fatal in women who are taking estrogen-progestin pills, a study suggests.

Hormone users who developed lung cancer were 60 percent more likely to die from the disease as women who weren't taking hormones, according to results reported Saturday.

The new findings mean that smokers should stop taking hormones, and those who have not yet started hormones should give it careful thought, said Dr. Rowan Chlebowski of Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles. He led the analysis and presented results at a meeting of the oncology society in Florida.

That is so frightening. It would be so great if women had more options to deal with hormonal changes. Some are on our blog at http://changemenopause.blogspot.com. Just trying to get options and info out there!

Bad news in this article! Hope there will be further research on it. Often happens that a drug that heals or help in an specific area increases the posibilities to acquiere another suffer. Topics like this one will be covered at the "13th World Conference on Lung Cancer (13th WCLC)", more information in this site:
