Ten years on breast cancer drug may be better

Delay in diagnosing and treating breast cancer can be deadly

Delay in diagnosing and treating breast cancer can be deadly. Contact our lawyers for help.

A study released Sunday showed that staying on hormone therapy for 10 years reduces the risk of a recurrence of breast cancer. Typically the drug, letrozole, is given for only five years sometimes after a course of another hormone therapy tamoxifen.  While many women with early-stage breast cancer live for a long time, they continue to “face an indefinite risk of relapse,” said the lead researcher of the new study.  This new research will help further reduce the risk of breast cancer recurrences.
