Hi there ..
I was told by my Gyno that taking Birth Controll Pills after age of 40 is not a very good idea especially after dx of carcinoma estrogen fed. Don't hasitate to ask questions about that or Google it on internet and see for your sake what people/specialists are talking about.
Best of luck.Sunes

Thanks for your comment.  I have stopped the Birth Control pills.  The mass was just found and is very small (4-5mm).  I am seeing the surgeon tomorrow and I am praying that the cancer is contained.   I will let you know.
