April 20, 2007, Newsletter Issue #62: Drug Therapy as a Treatment for Breast Cancer

Tip of the Week

If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer, your doctor will most likely prescribe drugs as part of your treatment. In some patients, medications are used without surgery, though you most likely will take breast cancer drugs in conjunction with, and following your other treatments. Drug therapy is intended to stop cancer cells from dividing into new cells, and spreading to other parts of the body. The most common drug used in breast cancer therapy is tamoxifen. Because breast cancer medication can increase the risk of other cancers, carefully follow your doctor's advice about using prescribed drugs and getting additional cancer screening tests.
