We’ve all heard that drinking booze – even in moderation – can bump your risk for breast cancer. As a result, many women and men diagnosed with the disease have either sworn off alcohol entirely or worry when they do imbibe. “I feel guilty often for drinking,” said Maile Feuerman, 40-year-old, stay-at-home mom from Eureka, California, who was diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago. “I don’t want to have to wonder if it comes back because I did this. But I love my wine.” A new study out of Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center offers a glimmer of good news for those who’ve been diagnosed and treated for the disease: moderate alcohol use after a breast cancer diagnosis won’t lead to a lethal recurrence. Alcohol use among breast cancer survivors has been linked to increased risks of developing a breast cancer recurrence, i.e., finding more cancer in a breast that’s already been diagnosed and, say, had a lumpectomy. Drinking also ups your risk of being diagnosed with a second breast cancer in the opposite “healthy” breast. Talk to your doctor before using tamoxifen with soy products. There is some evidence that substances present in soy may stimulate breast tumor growth and interfere with the action of tamoxifen, although this has not been proven. Whether soy products are effective for hot flashes is also uncertain. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
