Sort Of: We define cancers by their organ of origin. Therefore, by strict definition, bone cancer originates from bone cells; Anastrozole won't help these rare cancers. More commonly, cancers can spread to bones--we call this bone metastasis. Breast cancer can spread to bones; anastrazole can prevent the spread of certain breast cancers. Hope this helps. ...Read more

In researching cinnamon, I read one article warning it boosts sex hormone and contains beta-sitosterol, and both can cause prostate cancer. True?

Bone cancer (like osteosarcoma) is very rare and not related to breast cancer good luck. ...Read more

Some studies do show benefits in quality of life when homeopathy is used complementarily in cancer treatment. http://tinyurl.com/qjnwpal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
