The herbal pills to increase breast size have not been shown to be effective.


A number of these preparations are being marketed quite aggressively to young women. They are generally very expensive and sold in multi-month treatment quantities. The ingredients vary. Please see Fact Sheet #53, Herbal Medicines and Breast Cancer Risk, for more information.
