Can the Pill Cause Breast Cancer?

by Maryann Pisano on October 1, 2015


Can taking the pill cause breast cancer?  According to, this is possible.  Studies have shown that taking a birth control pill can put women at a slightly greater risk for breast cancer than women who don’t take the contraceptive.  However, if women stop using their birth control pills for more than 10 years, they do not appear to have any increased breast cancer risk.  If you’re willing to take birth control for whatever reason, discuss your risks with your doctor.
