Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hi. Dr Rick here. I completed an Internal medicine internship in NYC and have two decades of clinical experience. How can I assist you today?
What kind of cancer is involved here?
What is the persons general health condition right now?
Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?
This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.
Yes. I do.
There is no such pill.
We can hope for such a thing someday in the distant future but, as you correctly surmised, it does not yet exist.
Does this make sense to you?
It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.

This is Dr. David
woman with breast cancer which are ER positive can live for 5-10 years with breast cancer bone mets. some can live longer, some can live shorter than 5 years.
a pill would not prolong life for 20 years.
quality of life is usually very good
why are you worried about bone mets
you don't have bone met.s
5-10 years is possible. treatments with AI therapy and zometa therapy can help extend survival in women with bone mets.
you need to stop worrying about having mets.
soft tissues mets not in organs are not lethal and not dangerous.
yes, in 8-10 years, they most likely will make more effective drugs to fight breast cancer.
faslodex is an injection and is used as second like anti-estrogen therapy when AI therapy doesn't work anymore.
AI therapy can still slow down breast cancer growth if the cancer comes back.
you don't have to worry about mets.
you don't have to worry.
