      My cancer was in the duct..stage one..no lymph node involvement. I was put on anastrozole. I asked my onco. if it was worth it. He pulled out his laptop, checked the numbers right in front of me and said it would make only a .03% difference. He agreed to stop. I have had no problems. My age at that time was 68.

      Wonderful!
      My oncologist told me I had a 10% chance of a recurrence without anastrozole, 5% with it. When I went for second opinion, I was told, it's probably lower than that but would not commit to a figure. I am asking to see how he came to that figure when I go in June.
