Feb 5, 2018 · Video Q&A about Breast Cancer in Breast Cancer

I believe you addressed my question during the chat but you didn’t mention raloxifene which was the basis of my question.

Is this where we watch the Q&A?

Feb 2, 2018 · Video Q&A about Breast Cancer in Breast Cancer

I am a 60 year old, very healthy woman. After a core needle biopsy and lumpectomy I was diagnosed with atypical lobular hyperplasia of the left breast. My surgeon said I could see an oncologist “if I wanted to” which I thought was odd. To be on the safe side I did see an oncologist who said I should take raloxifene for 5 years as my chances of getting breast cancer in the next 5 years is 5%. This also seemed odd as the chance is so low yet the risks and side effects of raloxifene are not good. Neither Dr. suggested 6 month mammograms or nutritional prevention. Is this typical in my case??? Should I seek a second opinion? I’ve always avoided drugs all my life.
Thank you
