Should menopausal women treat hot flashes with hormones?

http://www.upstate.edu/hospital/providers/doctors/?docID=badawysHormone replacement therapy can be an appropriate choice for some women who struggle with the symptoms of menopause, says Shawky Badawy, MD, Upstate's division chief of reproductive endocrinology and infertility. Many patients ask Badawy about the risk of heart disease and breast cancer, which are important concerns. He says the decision of whether to seek relief from hormones must be made on an individual basis.
