Not really: Only 2-3% of cancers have a genetic link, most are behavioral. Uterine or endometrial cancer, is usually due to unopposed estrogen. The "opposition" is progesterone. If they were dangerous, you would have been in trouble when you were menstrating as well, making both Estrogens and progesterone.
