Cancer is a complex group of diseases characterized by the uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells, which can form tumors and invade nearby tissues. In some cases, cancer cells may also travel through the bloodstream or lymphatic system, leading to the development of metastatic cancer in distant organs.
Tamoxifen is a medication commonly used to treat hormone receptor-positive breast cancer, a subtype of cancer that relies on hormones such as estrogen to grow and spread. As a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM), tamoxifen works by blocking the effects of estrogen on cancer cells, thereby inhibiting their growth and proliferation. This medication is often prescribed as part of a comprehensive treatment plan, including surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy, to improve outcomes and reduce the risk of cancer recurrence.
