I'm a 27 yr old East Indian and I'm wondering about going on the pill. I've read up a lot about birth control pills, and most of it seems to be good. What I am hesitating about though, is that I have a family history of cancer.
My mom has had Chondro Sarcoma and is a survivor, my maternal and paternal aunts both have had breast cancer and are survivors. I'm overweight, although I have a fairly active life.
I'm wondering if tampering with harmones because of using birth control is going to be a potential cancer risk. Any comments?
