Anastrozole is used in the treatment of early hormone receptor-positive breast cancer. It is also used in the first-line treatment of hormone receptor-positive or hormone receptor-unknown advanced or metastatic (cancer that has spread) breast cancer.

Anastrozole is also used for the treatment of advanced breast cancer that has grown or spread after tamoxifen treatment. This medication is used only in women who have already stopped menstruating (postmenopausal).

Many breast cancer tumors grow as a result of estrogen. This medicine meddles with the production of estrogen in the body. As a result, the amount of estrogen that the tumor is exposed to is decreased, limiting the growth of the tumor.

The medication is available only with your doctor’s prescription.
