Estrogen treatment or High Estrogen levels

Estrogen-related drugs were once used in hormonal therapy for men with prostate cancer. This treatment may slightly increase breast cancer risk.

There is concern that transgender/transsexual individuals who take high doses of estrogens as part of a sex reassignment could also have a higher breast cancer risk. Still, there haven’t been any studies of breast cancer risk in transgendered individuals, so it isn’t clear what their breast cancer risk is.
