SS, a 86-year-old, post-stroke has this advanced breast cancer.
I am giving her a trial of tamoxifen as a primary treatment.
I have used tamoxifen as a primary treatment in 5 patients before who are old and debilitated and poor surgical risk. They have responded well.
Am going to monitor and document the progress of treatment in this patient.
Nov 27, 2015 (prior to tamoxifen therapy) – 5×5 cm
January 5, 2016 (More than one month on tamoxifen) – 5×4 cm – slight decrease – less retraction
Will continue to monitor.
