Hammond, 30, said that she suffered from tumors on the liver, as doctors linked her condition to taking pills with pregnancy for consecutive years without stopping.
Hammond stopped taking birth control pills as soon as doctors discovered tumors on her liver, and she says it was one of the best decisions she’s ever made.
“I learned the most important lesson of all, being the CEO of my own body, I will never put my health in anyone else’s hands again,” she said in a TikTok video.
She added, “The tumors are benign at the present time, fortunately, but if they are not detected, they grow, and if their size exceeds 5 cm, then it becomes possible for them to turn into malignant tumors in the future.”
- Extremely rare, it is believed to only occur in 0.01 percent of people.
- It is more common in women of childbearing age between 20 and 44 years and is usually benign.
- Research has linked tumors to birth control pills, with experts saying elevated levels of estrogen can interact with the liver, which normally metabolizes hormones.
- About 78 percent of hepatic tumors shrink in size once the patient stops taking hormonal birth control.
