In brief: Hormones/Breast CA
If i understand the question correctly you are asking about safe hormones for postmenopausal women with breast cancer? None, if the cancer is er/pr positive.
We prescribe estrogen blocking drugs to decrease the risk of recurrence. We discourage hormone use in all breast cancer patients.

In brief: None
None that is unless prescribed by your doctor. When the cancer is removed a portion of it is tested for hormone receptors.
Those results will help your doctor to decide which to give, if any.
