The 7.2 percent decline came a year after a big federal study linked menopause hormones to a higher risk of breast cancer, heart disease and other problems. Within months, millions of women stopped taking the pills.

A new analysis of federal cancer statistics, presented by researchers from the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center Thursday at a breast cancer conference in Texas, revealed the drop in tumors.

Why do doctors think the 2003 drop is largely due to hormones?

Cases declined most among women 50 and older, with tumors whose growth is fueled by estrogen — the age group and type of cancer most affected by hormone use. Around 2003, researchers said, these women heeded warnings and stopped using HRT — hormone replacement therapy.

But Dr. Freya Schnabel of New York Columbia Presbyterian says stopping hormone therapy may be just one reason for the dramatic decrease in breast cancer that year, reports CBS News correspondent Sharon Alfonsi. Better mammograms could play a part, too.

«If one thing is true,» Schnabel tells Alfonsi, «it’s that breast cancer is just not that simple.»

«It’s very difficult to wrap your arms around this subject of the various pros and cons of hormone replacement therapy,» adds CBS News medical correspondent Dr. Jon LaPook.

The drop also was seen in every single cancer registry that reports information to the federal government.

Researchers looked for a similar drop in other cancers, which could indicate something other than hormones was at work, «and we didn’t see anything,» said Kathy Cronin, a National Cancer Institute statistician who worked on the analysis.

When the 2003 numbers were first released a few months ago, they were grouped with 2001 and 2002 and portrayed as a leveling off of breast cancer after decades of steady rise. The big single-year drop was not pointed out because experts did not want to make too much of it without knowing whether the trend would continue.

However, Dr. Peter Ravdin, a breast cancer specialist at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center who led the new analysis, said the single year drop is important regardless, because it was so huge and 동두천출장안마 came after years of steady increases.

«We don’t know about whether or not it’s going to be a trend but we know for this year it was a significant effect,» he said.

Doctors estimate that half of women who were taking hormones stopped after July 2002, when the federal Women’s Health Initiative study was halted because more women taking estrogen/progestin pills developed breast cancer or heart problems.

That led to new warning labels on the drugs and doctor groups urging women to use the lowest dose for the shortest time possible.

«The hypothesis is entirely plausible, that the discontinuation of hormone replacement therapy could be having an effect,» said Dr. Michael Thun of the American Cancer Society.

More than 8,000 breast cancer specialists from 80 countries are in San Antonio for the Charles A. Coltman Jr. Breast Cancer Symposium, the world’s largest annual conference on breast cancer, which strikes 200,000 American women each year.

The next set of cancer statistics is due out in April.

«Knowing I was taking a trip to Cuba on a trade mission, the Obama administration asked me to raise the case of Alan Gross

New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson told journalists in Havana that while he was here on a trade mission for his state, he also raised the case of imprisoned USAID contractor Alan Gross with Cuban authorities.

Gross has been jailed since December for bringing illegal satellite equipment to dissidents in Cuba.

«Knowing I was taking a trip to Cuba on a trade mission, the Obama administration asked me to raise the case of Alan Gross. I did so with various high level officials,’ Richardson said during a press conference.

«I have been told it’s in a sensitive investigative and legal process. I believe I made inroads and 담양출장안마 some progress in the case,» he said, but added, «I am not a negotiator for the administration. «The New Mexico governor also denied bringing any special message from the Obama administration to the Cuban government. Richardson, who secured the release of three prisoners from Cuba 10 years ago, pointed out that that effort took two visits before it was successful.

Richardson said he did «not expect to see Fidel Castro» but if he did he would raise the case with him.

The governor said that after his meeting with Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez, that he thought the Cuban government has a better understanding of who Alan Gross is. Richardson noted that he had met with Gross’ wife and his lawyer and said, ‘He’s a good man. He may have made some mistakes. He is innocent. Releasing him would be a humanitarian gesture. He is not a political case.»

Richardson expressed the hope that the issue would be dealt with swiftly.

He further described the current mood between the U.S. and Cuba as «very positive» although moving in «small steps.»

«The Obama administration deserves credit for taking positive steps too, such as proposed expansion of travel,» for Americans to the island, Richardson said.

Richardson also praised Cuba’s recent prisoner releases. «The Cuban government deserves credit for tripartite agreement between the Catholic Church and Spanish government on the release of 32 political prisoners and hopefully more will happen in days to come,» he said.
