Breast cancer drugs

Posted:

Drugs like Tamoxifen and Evista significantly reduce the risk for developing invasive breast cancer, but they may also *increase* the risk for blood clots.

Researchers reviewed eight clinical trials about the benefits and harms associated with these drugs among women who've never had breast cancer but are at high risk for the disease.

Tamoxifen was also linked to an increased risk for endometrial cancer and cataracts.
