Health - Drug Could Reduce Breast Cancer Risk
Full story: First Coast News Jacksonville
I was diagnosed and treated earlier this year for DCIS. Treatments included lumpectomy, mammosite radition and tamoxifen. My doctor has just prescribed evista as a replacement for tamoxifen and because a recent bone density scan revealed some slight osteopenia. My question is this: For women who have already had DCIS or LCIS, is the invasive breast cancer risk reduction the same with evista as it is with tamoxifen? This is unclear from the recent literature I've read comparing the two drugs.

It has been established by many cancer experts that bisphosphonates may be used against certain types of cancer as its off-label use. While off-label use would mean it comes with the absence of an FDA approval, the osteoporosis drug that has been approved by the FDA may be a big relief to some breast cancer patients. However, the risk of side effects may still be imminent, it's best to get to know these before they could cause actual harm. Visit http://www.fosamax-lawsuit.net for more detailed information.
