Abstract

Results from a study of 1.8 million Danish women ages 15-49 indicate that the risk of breast cancer is increased among women who currently or recently used contemporary hormonal contraceptives compared to those women who have never used such methods. While the risk increased with longer use, the absolute increases in risk were small.
