Tamoxifen Linked To Ovarian Cyst Formation In Premenopausal
Breast Cancer Patients


WESTPORT, Feb 25 (Reuters Health) - New findings confirm that the
increased risk of ovarian cyst formation associated with
tamoxifen therapy in premenopausal breast cancer patients can be
attributed entirely to tamoxifen.  To examine the exclusive
effects of tamoxifen on ovarian cyst formation, Dr.  Ilan Cohen,
of Sapir Medical Center in Kfar-Saba, Israel, and a multicenter
team compared serum hormone levels and the presence of ovarian
cysts in 20 premenopausal breast cancer patients receiving
tamoxifen therapy and 12 similar nontreated patients.
