In brief: Unknown

It is unknown for estrogen receptor positive (er+) breast cancers.
Soy has estrogen-like properties. In lab studies, some soy products have caused breast cancer cells to die, while other products have caused the same cells to grow. I tell my patients not to take soy supplements in the form of extracts, pills, or powders, but if they enjoy drinking soy milk they may do so, in moderation.
