Is there an association between hormone therapy (HT) and the risk of lung cancer development?
In Despite Misperceptions, Hormone Therapy May Actually Reduce Risk of Lung Cancer, published 01 March 2023, the North American Menopause Society elaborate on:
“Study results have been inconsistent regarding the association between HT and the risk of lung cancer development, with some suggesting HT leads to greater risk and others stating it results in lower risk. This latest study, which is based on data from more than 38,000 postmenopausal women, sought to investigate the association between HT and lung cancer risk based on dosage. After 16 years of follow-up, the study’s researchers concluded that HT is not associated with an increased risk of lung cancer in postmenopausal women. In fact, it found that with a higher cumulative dosage of HT or a therapy duration that was longer than 5 years, the risk of developing lung cancer was lower”.2
In The Association Between Hormone Therapy and the Risk of Lung Cancer In Postmenopausal Women: A 16-Year Nationwide Population-Based Study: Conclusions, published May 2023, the authors conclude:
“Our results indicate that HT is not associated with the risk of lung cancer development in postmenopausal women; furthermore, a higher cumulative dosage and the long-term effects of HT reduce the risk of developing lung cancer”.3
Health Care Provider
If I choose to use HT what is my risk of lung cancer?
Different women who choose to use HT can have different risks of lung cancer. It may therefore be in your best interest to also choose to talk to your health care provider about this
