In celebration of Pink October which is the Breast Cancer Awareness Month. would like to take part in educating the public about breast cancer, specifically for transsexual women or ladyboys.

What’s breast cancer?

(So first, let’s define breast cancer.) Breast cancer is a cancerous (malignant) tumor that starts from cells in breast tissue. It is the second most common and deadly cancer for women. Alright so what is the risk of transwomen/ladyboys to get breast cancer?

Do ladyboys get breast cancer?

As far as I am concern there is not enough research yet on how transgender women are affected with breast cancer. However people who are working on transgender health found out that the risk of breast cancer increases following breast development and five or more years of hormone therapy. There are other risk factors for breast cancer  which mostly  applies to genetic women.

Risks after HRT

  • A history of breast biopsies
  • A history of radiation treatment to the chest wall
  • A family history of or genetic susceptibility to breast cancer
  • Nulliparity (which means never having been pregnant)
  • Having children after age 30;
  • Beginning menstruation before 12 years of age.
  • Undergoing menopause after 55 years of age.
  • Excessive alcohol consumption, which some ladyboy might be guilty for this.
  • Obesity, which knows no gender
  • Getting older

Are you overdosing?

Most of transwomen are under HRT (hormone replacement therapy) , but how many of them are seeing a doctor and know the proper dosage? Is it even giving effective results if you overdose? The risk of long term complications is, however, real.Well since I am not not medically trained I suggest that you speak to your doctor and have your self screened for I believe precautionary measure is a big help. And asked your doctor about the appropriate dosage of your hormone. Lets us take care of our breast!

    Hi Ms. Maki :) I just wanna ask, is there a doctor here in the Philippines which will cater our needs as a trans women specially, when it comes to HRT? Thank you very much! :)
  • Hi Maki, Your videos are very educative and very well delivered, thanks for that. Thanks also for being so knowledgeable and so attractive. I am not at all attracted to a man's male genitalia, However, it is another matter when it is attached to a beautiful women. Moreover, I had always considered myself heterosexual and top, however, when it comes to transwomen, I am only interested in bottoming. There is something about being taken by a woman that just blows my mind. Can you address this issue? Are there other men like me out there?
    • Thanks Maki for your precious time. Should I conclude that there is no study(ies)/poll(s) out there addressing the matter?
  • Hi Maki, you are a very beautiful. I find your site informative, educational and I think I am in love with you. Stephen
