Breast Cancer - Tamoxifen Education Lowers Appeal

After being told about potential side effects, as well as the benefits, US research shows that less than one in five women want to take Tamoxifen as a preventative agent (Cancer 2005: 103: 1996-2005). The main reasons given against usage were the possible side effects of pulmonary embolism, sexual dysfunction and cataracts.

Meanwhile in a side by side analysis from Honolulu (Int. of Radiation Oncology Bio. Phys. 2005; 62; 193-7), Japanese women have been shown to have a much lower recurrence of breast cancer than there Western equals. Diet and lifestyle, not drugs, were suspected as the reason.

Look up Tamoxifen in our A to Z guide to cancer drugs - you will find all about its benefits and side effects.
