Tamoxifen 30 x 20mg UK Pharma is an antiestrogen, prescribed for early breast cancer in women who have already been treated with surgery, radiation or chemotherapy.
Since, breast cancer cells are estrogen sensitive, estrogen binds to these cells and stimulates them to grow and divide. Tamoxifen prevents the binding of estrogen. Therefore, it stops the cells from growing and in doing so, prevents or delays breast cancer recurrence.
Tamoxifen (Tamoxifen Citrate) interferes with the activity of estrogen (a female hormone). Tamoxifen has been used to treat both advanced and early stage breast cancer. It is also used for ductal carcinoma, infertility and gynecomastia.
Tamoxifen (Nolvadex) is use to treat early-stage breast cancer after surgery to reduce the risk of the cancer coming back.
It is used for women and men diagnosed with hormone-receptor-positive or advanced-stage or metastatic hormone-receptor-positive disease.
