The incidence of primary fallopian tube https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/27148621/Levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system and breast cancer risk: A systematic review and meta-analysisConclusions: Current evidence suggests that LNG-IUS users have an increased breast cancer risk regardless of age and indication. The effect of LNG-IUS on breast cancer risk seems to be larger in older users. However, our systematic review detected methodological issues across the available studies, and confounding factors may be responsible for at least a fraction of the risk effects associated with LNG-IUS use. Nevertheless, users of LNG-IUS should be aware of these trends. We believe that caution is needed, and risks should be balanced against proven health benefits (eg effective treatment of heavy menstrual bleeding and avoidance of surgical interventions), when prescribing LNG-IUS for long periods of use, especially in women with other known breast cancer risk factors such as old age, obesity, and familial predispositionhttps://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/31990981/Thank you for listening!Please comment on future topics and questions you would like for the Podcast!
