To the Editor: I agree with the assessment by Del Mar and colleagues of available data according to evidence-based guidelines on hormone replacement therapy (HRT) after mastectomy.1 As they note, these data are not definitive. Standard practice has been to avoid oestrogen use in women with a history of breast cancer.
