Well,hopefully, it will be good news.........

Hi Folks,
Wondered if any of you has picked up on the report in the recent 'Lancet' issue about the extended use of Tamoxifen.
Id heard previously that the time frame for Tamoxifen was to be 7 years, but this new research suggests that the greater benefits are to found at around 10 years. I will def be talking to my surgeon about this at my next appt.
And I think its so heartening to see the research was funded by Cancer Research-All those pink walks have paid off!!
