Study: Drug helps breast cancer survivors  story image
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A major new study has found that breast cancer survivors are more likely to stay cancer free if they take the drug Tamoxifen for a longer period of time.

Right now doctors recommend that cancer patients who take Tamoxifen, continue to take it for five years.

But in this new study women who took the drug for 10 years lowered their risk of recurrence by 25 percent, compared to those who took it for five years.

The study results are a bit surprising, because many doctors believed taking that hormone-blocking drug for longer than five years could be harmful.
