Contraception and cancer risk
What effect do women’s contraceptive choices have on their cancer risk? And what options are advisable for those diagnosed with cancer?

The first is whether the method of contraception affects the risk of various cancers.
The second question is whether a person previously diagnosed with cancer can safely use a certain method of contraception.
When it comes to the breast, combined contraception is, in fact, a double-edged sword.
