Does eating soyfood prevent or promote breast cancer? Or both?

I started drinking soymilk after age 40 primarily for the fiber to manage my weight. At that time I also had problems with breast tenderness as a side effect of PMS, but the soymilk took care of it. Now at age 53 there is no breast tenderness, am still menstruating and show no signs of menopause. I believe the isoflavones balance out the estrogen and all the rest of the hormones in my body keeping me feeling young and strong. People think I'm 35 years old!
