Tamoxifen 50 x 20mg GenTech is used to reduce the risk of breast cancer in women who are at high risk for the disease due to their age, personal medical history and family medical history. It can block the growth of breast cancer. It works by interfering with the effects of estrogen in the breast tissue.
Tamoxifen (Tamoxifen Citrate) is a selective estrogen-receptor modulator (SERM) that works both by reducing factors that increase the growth of breast cells and increasing factors that decrease the growth of breast cells.
Tamoxifen is used to treat breast cancer that has spread to other parts of the body (metastatic breast cancer), to treat breast cancer in certain patients after surgery and radiation therapy and to reduce the chances of breast cancer in high-risk patients.
Tamoxifen (Nolvadex), the active ingredient present in Tamoxifen blocks the actions of oestrogen. Oestrogen is a natural female sex hormone. In certain types of breast cancer, oestrogen can help cancer cells to grow.
