Having a Hyst and Breast Cancer Chances

I was wondering something. My mother said that she had heard that ladies who had a hyst had less chance of having breast cancer. I don't know where she heard that, and she didn't differentiate between those who kept their ovaries and those who didn't. Has anyone else heard this?

Having a Hyst and Breast Cancer Chances

Hi Ramona,
I have never heard this, but I suppose if some breast cancers are caused by too much hormones and a woman has a hyst, and does not go on hormones it could lower the risk. Maybe others will be along who have read up on this. It is still important to have mammograms though.
