Common Questions and Answers about Anastrozole forum

arimidex

Hello, I am 70 years old and was diagnosed with Stage 1 breast cancer in July of this year. I had a lumpectomy in August and when tissue was sent to pathology the results showed ductal carcinoma. I had a mastectomy beginning of this month and I found out yesterday that the pathology reults were clear of cancer. I spoke to the oncologist who explained I have the option of no treatment, or to take a "chemo pill" for 5 years everyday. The name of the medicine is Anastrozole.

I did some reading and there is a drug being used in a phase II trial...Arimidex (anastrozole) you might want to ask about and there is also some radiotherapy being used. I don't know much and I am not in the medical field but this info might come in handy. Also....you have posted in the patient to patient forum....you might want to post again in the doctor to patient forum. Good luck to you both. Peace.
Hello - I have pelvic aggressive angiomyxoma, not breast cancer, but it is very rare and this is the only forum I could find to post a question in. AA is considered benign but a locally very aggressive tumor and, being estrogen receptive in my case was surgically removed and is now being treated with Lupron (3 monthly injections) and Arrimidex. I have something that looks like scar and is not changing as per the MRI scans for several months now.
Dear nannyct, The current data with "extended adjuvant therapy" (beyond the initial 5 years) is with letrozole (Femara) after 5 years of tamoxifen. Letrozole and anastrozole (Arimidex) are both aromatase inhibitors and are very similar to one another. In most of the adjuvant studies using these drugs, 5 years of treatment has been given. An ongoing study will compare 5 to 10 years of aromatase inhibitors but there are no results available yet on that study.

Hi everyone: I just found this forum today, anyone ever been treated with a medication called : Budesonide? My Specialist has just put me on this as a maintenance drug and to calm a flare back into remission.
It sounds as if you need to get onto a motor neurone disease forum. On this forum we know all about lyme disease and other tick borne diseases, and you probably won't find the detailed knowledge you're looking for. Good luck!
