Approximately 80% of breast cancer occurs in women with little to no family history. Research has shown that an increased lifetime exposure to oestrogen, and unbalanced oestrogen metabolism, is a strong risk factor in the development of breast, ovarian and prostate cancer, as well as oestrogen dominant disorders, such as endometriosis and premenstrual syndrome.
- Women or men with a strong family history of breast, ovarian, colon or prostate cancer
- Women who suffer from oestrogen-dominant conditions such as endometriosis, premenstrual syndrome, and uterine fibroid tumours
- Women considering oral contraceptives, hormone replacement therapy or bio-identical hormone supplementation
- Women who are considering in vitro fertilisation or who have been diagnosed with oestrogen receptor-positive breast cancer
