2 doctors agree

In brief: No breast Ca risk

Question is raised as to rationale of total hysterectomy at 32.
Hormone therapy is indicated but has no relationship to the induction of breast Cancer. There latter is induced in most patients by viral transformation thru the Wnt gene and not ingestion of hormones. Fire is not caused by spilling gasoline on paper. The paper must be on fire and Ca must be present in breast for stimulation.
