Alone to treat advanced breast cancer after other hormone drugs (like tamoxifen and often an aromatase inhibitor) have stopped working. In combination with a CDK 4/6 inhibitor or PI3K inhibitor to treat metastatic breast cancer as initial hormone therapy or after other hormone treatments have been tried.

It is given by injections into the buttocks. Symptoms of breast cancer may include a lump in the breast, a change in size or shape of the breast or discharge from a nipple. Breast self-exam and mammography can help find breast cancer early when it is most treatable. Treatment may consist of radiation, lumpectomy, mastectomy, chemotherapy and hormone therapy.” Breast Cancer Resources.

Palbociclib is also approved to be used in combination with fulvestrant for the treatment of women with hormone receptor–positive, HER2-negative advanced or metastatic breast cancer whose cancer has gotten worse after treatment with another hormone therapy. About hormone therapy. Hormone therapy is a form of systemic therapy—a way of administering drugs so they travel throughout the body, rather than being delivered directly to the cancer—that works to add, block or remove hormones from the body to slow or stop the growth of cancer cells.

After surgery, women diagnosed with hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer usually take hormonal therapy medicine to reduce the risk of the cancer coming back (recurrence). Hormonal therapy medicines work in two ways: by lowering the amount of estrogen in the body by blocking the action of estrogen on breast cancer cells. Breast cancer remains one of the most common types of cancer, affecting more than 300,000 new patients each year. While chemotherapy has been used effectively in the past, new studies suggest there may be better ways to combat the disease, avoiding potentially severe or permanent side effects caused by some chemotherapy drugs like Taxotere.

  • I appreciate the video. I have to say, I’m not sold on it at all. Reducing recurrence by half with all the establishes side effects, paired with the unknown both short and long term. I think there are better gambles out there.

  • I been diagnosed w HER2 triple positive breast cancer. I have 2 rounds of chemo left out of 6, many months of immunotherapy drugs to do, and I’ll b on hormone therapy for years. I’m also BRCA 1 & 2 negative (thank God), and I’m still trying to do a full hysterectomy and double mastectomy (not at the same time) I’m also switching my eating habits a lot and switched to purified drinking water only. I’m going to do everything I can to not have a reoccurrence of cancer. ❤️

  • Thank you for these videos. My OC is good but it helps hearing this and knowing it is going correctly. IBC, IDC, cancer with 2lymph nodes involved. I will keep taking that sticking pill for my 10 yrs as I do not want this back

  • I’m very sorry but after chimo and hormonal therapy my cancer is back right after 1,5 year… my doctor told me…”well it didn’t work for you and we should stop hormonal therapy”… chimo didn’t as well but why they still want me to do chimo again since none of therapies didn’t work for me? First place my cancer was because of my hormones….

  • This guy has NFI. “Some joint aching” 36%, wow he knows how to minimise what women actually report and experience, ie awful, life altering severe joint pain, bone density loss, arthritis and osteoporosis, fractures, and thinks anybody cares about vaginal dryness in the same category, when AI will give severe chronic pain to a person where before they had none.

  • I see many people keep on talking about Clegenatur Methods (just search it on google). But I’m not sure if it is good. Have you ever tried using this popular breast enhancement methods?

  • I’m post menopause and 53 and want to try HCG. HCG levels are 2.6 and estrogen is 0,5 testosterone is also very low. With enough HCG all hormones will be there in the right amount including E2. I only need a doctor who wants to try this on me. Please respond if you are able to do this. Thanks.

  • IDC 2cm in size. ER+ PR+ HER2.Can mastectomy or any kind of surgery be avoided and just do light chemo or hormone therapy? Thank you so much for your helpful videos

  • I’d rather die than have no estrogen in my body. Personally. It’s every women’s choice. I take a hefty dose of HRT and I will never come off it.

  • Thank you so much for your excellent videos. I’ve just been diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma. You are a Godsend. I’m better prepared for my cancer journey. God bless you.

  • Dr. You may experience some joint and muscle aching.
    Female patients, it feels like someone is tearing my muscles off with their fingers and burning me with fire.
    Funny how the description of this isn’t exactly equal.

  • I would just like to thank you for providing this information to newly diagnosed cancer patients.

    It is very complex, and the treatment options can be overwhelming. Your expertise is crucial to patients in making their own decisions. Thank you.

  • We already know about the joint pain, insomnia and weight gain but could you please address the cognitive impairment caused but these drugs.

  • I switched to Tamoxifen after 6 weeks on Femara. Femara is an aromatase inhibitor and it nearly did me in with severe and painful side effects. It was much harder on me than chemo. Was on Tamoxifen for 5 years with no adverse effects other than the occasional hot flash.

  • Does Clegenatur Methods really help to increase breast size naturally by using healthy ways? I have learn a lot of good things about this popular natural breast enhancement.

  • So do people who have high or low estrogen and progesterone tend to get the progesterone and estrogen receptor positive breast cancer?

  • Thank you so much Doctor. You are very knowledgeable and patient, I enjoy watching your videos and learning a lot, I’m starting my radiation next week, also oral endocrine. You are such an angel, God bless you.

  • Seems to me we need more women talking about this issue and their voices heard so that more work is done to lessen the side effect of these drugs. They are not mild they can be so bad that we know there is a drop out rate of at least 30% where women are choosing cancer risk instead of taking this “wonder drug”. You’d think there was a strong message in that.

  • I just start 3 months ago zoladex and anastrazole hate side effects:hit flashes,fatigue, change moods, sleep problems but need to learn to live with that keep cancer away.

  • Can’t still believe that i got cured from Genital Herpes through herbal treatment from Dr david who I met through the internet, I actually couldn’t believe it at first because it sounded impossible to me knowing how far I have gone just to get rid of it. Dr david send me his medicine which I took as instructed and here I am living a happy life once again, a big thanks to Dr david, I am sure there are many herbal doctors out there but Dr david did it for me, contact him [email protected] com or also whats app him +2347042992115

  • I’m starting Femara this evening. Picking up the packet this afternoon. I need to get my weight down too. I have 15kgs to lose. HER2+, node negative, 21mm. Mastectomy, three cycles FEC100, nine cycles Taxol, 23 sessions radiotherapy, 18 ongoing cycles Herceptin, and now Femara for five years. I’ve elected for a DIEP reconstruction in June 2019.
