This is so strange. For years, we were told that some patients had female tumors that were estrogen-dependent. Now, estrogen shrinks some tumors?

I think they mean that to give it estrogen 'primes' or 'opens it up' for treatment so the treament is more effective. Thats what i have read and think it means.

I think you both need to spend some time with a good doctor. If you don't, you may find yourself battling an unexpected foe named cancer. Please take care of yourselves. - A man who cares about women.
