Hi, Laurie.
I had genetic testing for breast cancer, colorectal cancer, and ovarian cancer (as they share many similar genes), and it was paid for by my insurance. The results were negative. My oncologist is of the opinion that my breast cancer was caused by taking hormone replacement therapy when going through menopause which is likely, considering that my pathology report showed high levels of estrogen and progesterone.

That is interesting. I took natural HRT but did not mention it to my onco. I would bet with the knowledge I have now that it definitely had an influence.

The HRT cause could of been a contributing cause to my breast cancer. Never considered before. I had surgical induced menopause at age 40 due to non-cancerous reason. So seeing I went thru menopause at an early age, I was on HRT for over 10 years.
