Breast cancer, HRT, and what the evidence says, with Kirsty Lang and Dr Sarah Glynne
When it comes to HRT, those with a history or increased risk of breast cancer can often feel left out of the conversation. But on this episode of The Liz Earle Wellbeing Show, Liz tackles this topic with journalist, Kirsty Lang, and menopause specialist and GP, Dr Sarah Glynne.
Kirsty shares her experience of breast cancer after being diagnosed in 2016, and her decision to return to hormone replacement therapy following treatment.
Meanwhile, Liz and Sarah discuss the fear caused by the poor interpretation of studies on HRT and the risk of breast cancer. They chat through what recent evidence actually indicates to help arm you with the knowledge to make an informed decision on whether HRT is right for you.
