In brief: Not necessarily.
If i may rephrase your question, does your breast biopsy result warrant stopping estrace (estradiol)? Answering this requires knowing your specific biopsy results, and is best answered by the doctor that ordered your biopsy and the doctor that prescribed your estrace (estradiol).

In brief: In my opinion
a few years of use is probably safe, but you should make the decision with your trusted gyn
