Increased risk of thyroid cancer among women with hysterectomies
The rate of hysterectomies is surprisingly high. Personally, I believe that it is much easier for obstetricians to just remove the “offending” organ rather than balance out the physiology that is unbalanced. Hormonal problems are very common and can be strongly related to lifestyle factors. With this study, we see that risk of thyroid cancer is increased for the two years after hysterectomy w/ bilateral ovary removal (oopherectomy). To me, this means that, whatever was causing the female problems was not fixed by the surgery (big shocker…), and that imbalance of physiology or toxicity also was toxic to the thyroid.
