Tamoxifen Reported to Cause Aggressive Cancer Tumors

Tamoxifen Reported to Cause Aggressive Cancer Tumors

The cancer prevention drug, tamoxifen, may cause cancer. It has been reported that rare cancers are being found in long-term users. Tamoxifen is the drug of choice, prescribed after breast cancer detection or surgery. Its use is deemed to have a 20% success rate in preventing further incidences of cancer. For this reason, many breast cancer survivors are long term users of tamoxifen, and this news is disturbing for both them and their caregivers.
