HRT and cancer

I have breast cancer on both sides of family - aunt and great aunt - late onset in 80''s. What are chances for me IF i go onto HRT?

9 kg''s in a year!! Tests reveal HIGH FSH and low oestrogen.
What are " bio-identical"  HRT?

There is a sightly increases chance of breast cancer with HRT. You would have to decide whether you are willing to take the risk. I don't think that'bio-identical'HRT is done in SA. It involves making up specific medication tailored to you.
