Hi and welcome to HCM.
There is no reported bad correaltion between carcinoids and hormonal therpay. Hormones from carcinoids are different then those ones used in HRT. So i dont see a reason not to take it. Also you should know is there any relaps of carcinoid. DO frequent check ups made of imaging tests and hormone measurments. WIsh you good health.
