Prostate Cancer Possible Caused By Contraceptive Pills

Commonly, prostate cancer is slow growing in nature but at times, it can also be aggressive. It is the leading type of cancers in male. Prostate cancer may cause pain, difficulty in urinating, problems during sexual intercourse, or erectile dysfunction. Other symptoms can potentially build up during later stages of the disease. Like other cancers, it can easily metastasize or spread to other parts of the body, like the lymph nodes.

On the other hand, together with the increasing rate of cases of cancer is the worldwide rampant use of contraceptive pills. Almost 100 million women are using this kind of contraception. It is a combination of estrogen and progestin (progesterone) hormone. They are the main hormones of female and in high levels in the body, can inhibit women’s fertility.

A study that used data from the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and the United Nations World Contraceptive Use, reported the relationship between the rates of prostate cancer and associated deaths and the rate of women using common methods of contraception for 2007. The use of different contraception method like, intrauterine devices, condoms and other vaginal barriers was not related to the increased risk of prostate cancer. However, deaths and new cases of prostate cancer are significantly associated with the use of contraceptive pills in a variety of countries, irregardless of the nation’s wealth. The whole population used during the research was considered.

The proponents claim that one of the limitations of their study is to confirm the cause and effect of contraceptive pills in the cases of prostate cancer. They said that this research also aims to posts further inquiries with this topic to have a clear conclusion. Supporting explanation includes the theory that exposure to high level of estrogen may lead to higher risk of developing prostate cancer. Excess estrogen exposure is known to cause cancer, and it is thought that widespread use of the Pill might raise environmental levels of endocrine disruptive compounds (EDCs) — which include by-products of oral contraceptive metabolism. “These don’t break down easily, so can be passed into the urine and end up in the drinking water supply or the food chain, exposing the general population”, say the authors. “Temporal increases in the incidence of certain cancers (breast, endometrial, thyroid, testis and prostate) in hormonally sensitive tissues in many parts of the industrialized world are often cited as evidence that widespread exposure of the general population to EDCs has had adverse impacts on human health,” as further discussed by the researchers.
