Misdiagnosis of Medication Causes of Breast Cancer


About medication causes: Another misdiagnosis possibility is that a particular medication or substance may be the real cause of the disease. Certain medications, chemicals, toxins or substances may possibly be underlying causes of Breast Cancer. Side effects of medications, or exposure to toxins, chemicals, or other substances may cause a symptom or condition. Hence, they become possible underlying causes of Breast Cancer but are often misdiagnosed or overlooked as a cause. For a general overview of this misdiagnosis issue, see Medication Underlying Cause Misdiagnosis.

Medication causes: An important question about HRT and ERT is presently under study: Does HRT/ERT increase your risk of breast cancer? Although the answer is not known now, many doctors believe that if you are not at high risk for breast cancer, you can safely use HRT or ERT. They believe that the benefits of this therapy to the heart and bones are more important than the risks in many women. This is especially true for women with a family history of osteoporosis.1
