Cancer is a group of abnormal cells formed by cells that grow continuously, are unlimited, and are not coordinated with the surrounding tissue and physiological functioning. Cancer occurs due to the rise and breeding of the surrounding tissue (infiltrate) while destroying (destructive), can spread to the other part of the body, and is generally fatal if left unchecked. Menopause is a condition that all women will pass. Some symptoms will appear when in that condition. Therefore many women use hormone replacement therapy to relieve symptoms of menopause. Breast cancer is a very common problem in the community; if the problem is not quickly overcome, breast cancer can cause death. Therefore, this study aimed to explore the effect of hormone replacement therapy on an increased incidence of breast cancer. The results of the comparison between the three journals stated that after a decline in the use of hormone replacement therapy, breast cancer incidence rates decreased, so it is concluded that when the use of hormone replacement therapy is excessive over five years, it may be a risk factor of breast cancer. Keywords: hormone replacement therapy, breast cancer, menopause
