I just found out that I may have liver cancer on top of heart failure. Can birth control cause the liver cancer?

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

There is a connection (although rare) between birth control and non-cancerous (benign) liver tumors but no direct connection has been found for actual cancer. However, it is suggested that more studies need to be done to see if there may be some kind of link.

I do hope you are cancer free and that you get well soon.
