WE KEEP AN EYE ON BREAST CANCER INFORMATION!

*Fulvestran at 500 mg is probably the strongest hormone intervention in post Menopausal patients.
*Switching from Letrozole to tamoxifen after 2 years has NO  loss in survival benefit,  so if Osteoporosis is worsened on Letrozole, switch easy! 
*Docetaxel +Herceptin+Pertuzumab is best first line treatment of Her-2 positive  metastatic breast cancer .
*Don't give T-DM1 with Herceptin because they compete for same receptor and mitigate the power of T-DM1
*Tamoxifen has a "carry over" effect.  Even when you stop it, it keeps on going (like the Battery!)
