my urinalysis always shows trace leukocyte estrace any cause for concern (i have lupus so tested every 3-6 months)?

Not if culture neg.: This is not a concern as long as the urine cultures are negative. A trace LE can just be from some contamination. However, when you have this a culture should be done to confirm that there is no infection going on.

Indirectly: The principal cause of cancer is things which increase the division rate of cells beyond their natural rate leading to an increase in mistakes which can lead to cancer. Estradiol augments the natural estrogen, cause estrogen sensitive cells to divide at a rate beyond their natural programming. This is especially true for the breast, and this leads to an increase in breast cancer.

The Beast?: If you're referring to "the beast anabolic activator, " a homeopathic spray purporting to contain "molecular imprints" of a slew of hormones (including the 2 you mention), amino acids, RNA & dna (?), and a bunch of other things i've never heard of. In sum, it's water and alcohol, and won't have any effects whatsoever (besides your pocketbook).

Nothing: Estradiol is the form of estrogen produced by the ovary. 17 beta Estradiol to be exact. It is easy to manufacture this and put it in a medicine form whether it be a pill, patch, gel or spray.
