Side Effects May Spur Men to Drop Tamoxifen for Breast Cancer
Date:11/16/2011

nstitution, we noted that several of our male patients were having difficulty with taking tamoxifen therapy, and these side effects appeared to be a little bit different to those reported with women receiving the same drug," Pemmaraju continued.

"The results of this study should not change the recommendation for prescribing tamoxifen for male breast cancer patients. However, clinicians need to be aware of the possible side effects that men may experience when receiving tamoxifen so that the patients can be counseled appropriately," he added.

In the United States, about 2,140 new cases of invasive breast cancer in men will be diagnosed this year and about 450 men will die of the disease.
