Researchers concluded that one excess breast cancer could be expected for every 20,000 women who used oral contraceptives from ages 16 to 19 and 4.7 cancers could be expected for every 10,000 women who used them from ages 25 to 29.
According to Cerhan's editorial, there is evidence that oral contraceptive use can reduce a woman’s risk for ovarian and endometrial cancers, and recent studies suggest that it may also protect against colorectal cancercolorectal cancer.
He writes that use of oral birth control is also believed to reduce the risk of pelvic inflammatory disease, benign breast disease, ovarian cystsovarian cysts, and other reproductive-related health problems
Birth control pills are "associated with an increased risk of premenopausal breast cancer," according to an analysis of studies in the Mayo Clinic Proceedings. The World Health Organization recently classified such pills as carcinogens; the link may help to explain why U.S. breast cancer has been increasing. Caveats: 1) "The absolute risk ... is very small." 2) The increased risk gradually disappears after you stop taking the pills. 3) We're not saying you shouldn't take them; we're just saying you should be informed of the risk. 4) You should also be informed that the pills "decrease the risk of ovarian and endometrial cancer" and help fight ovarian cysts and pelvic inflammatory disease.
