Breast Cancer Q and A
Full story: NPR
I am a high risk subject for Breast Cancer. My doctor has suggested I start on the drug Evista since the new report that has just come out.
I am 68 years old and have had only one benign cyst removed. It was taken out due to calcium deposits in 1992. All my mammograms have been normal. I stopped drinking regular coffee and have had less cysts.
I used hormones replacement drugs for 10 years. I have been off them for 7 years.
I had a mother with breast cancer at the age of 79. Two sisters at the ages of 55 and 72. My mother lived to be 93, my one sister is now 82 and the other has finished chemotherapy for inoperable lung cancer.(8 months ago and is doing quite well)
One sister died of Ovarian cancer at the age of 70.
One sister had cervical cancer at the age of 45 and is now 79.
My health is very good. I take only a high cholesterol tablet (Zeta) and one Nexium tablet daily.
My mother also had two minor strokes.
I am not sure that the Evista is a drug that I should be taking. What is your opinion? I have a daughter that is 40 and more concerned about her.
My husband has a sister that had a mastectomy 40 years ago and she is 80 now. Does that put my put my daughter at a higher risk? Would you recommend DNA testing for her?
Thank you for your time.
I think you should use Evista. I'm personally using pills purchased from http://www.gomedstore.com/prescriptions/evist... and it made good effects.
I think DNA testing is good as well and you should do it for your daughter ASAP.
