Is it ok to use lotion containing estrogen phytocytes if you are taking femara (letrozole) for ER positive breast cancer?

In brief: Estrogen

I would not recommend it there are so many products on the market without estrogen to choose from.

In brief: Phytoestrogens.

These are plant based creams or supplements which have estrogen-like molecules.
It's probably best to avoid them if you have er-positive breast cancer. You should discuss this issue with your oncologist.
