I am 76 yrs. old and have been having some breast soreness for the past two weeks. Could this be because I am on hormone therapy.
Yes - it could be due to the hormones. If it persists, however, you should see your doctor for a breast exam and xray. It would be unusual for cancer to hurt, but it can happen.
