Hormone Therapy & Menopause
Blood cloths, gallstones, breast cancer and cardiovascular complications are the risks of hormonal replacement.
Dr. Charles Kalstone, Obstetrician and Gynecologist with Baptist Health South Florida, describes the main preoccupation for physicians and patients are the risks of breast cancer. “The risk is one in a thousand approximately. For 1000 women take hormones for one year, there may be one extra case from taking them," he says.
