Exemestane is used for the treatment of early and advanced breast cancer in women who have already stopped menstruating (postmenopausal). It is generally used in women who have already received a cancer medication also called tamoxifen.

Estrogen is known to stimulate the growth of numerous breast cancer tumours. Exemestane intermeddles with the production of estrogen in the body. As a result, the amount of estrogen that the tumour is exposed to is decreased, which will limit the growth of the tumour.

Before you start treatment with exemestane, you and your doctor must talk about the benefits this medicine will do as well as the risks of using it. This medication is only available under the prescription of your doctor.
