Fertility medicines do not increase the risk of breast cancer



The July report from the Cancer Epidemiology Institute shows that using fertility drugs does not pose a risk factor for breast cancer, Reuters Health reports. The study included over 54,000 women with fertility problems. Following the tests, the researchers found that the drugs have no connection with breast cancer.
In addition, it was observed that none of the 5 drug combinations significantly increase the risk of breast cancer. It seems that progesterone has been shown to be a favorable factor, but only in 6 cases out of 54,000. According to the study, the specialists concluded that the risk of breast cancer is greatly increased by fertility drugs.
