As you are seeing your breast care nurse for a 10 year check-up it is likely she will give you advice on stopping your letrozole. You won’t need to stop taking it gradually. Some people worry about stopping their treatment, but there’s evidence that letrozole continues to reduce the risk of breast cancer coming back for many years after you stop taking it. Your breast care nurse may also discuss the importance of continuing to be breast aware and who to contact if you have any concerns in the future, this will usually be your GP.
