Aromasin is used to treat advanced breast cancer in postmenopausal women whose disease has gotten worse after treatment with tamoxifen. Postmenopausal women are women who have gone through the “change of life” and are no longer having menstrual cycles.
Aromasin is used to reduce the risk of breast cancer recurrence (coming back) in postmenopausal women with estrogen receptor positive early stage breast cancer who have received two to three years of tamoxifen and are switched to Aromasin to complete a total of five consecutive years of therapy.
The safety and effectiveness of Aromasin in women who can still have children (premenopausal) has not been determined.
