Since node-negative patients are primarily at risk for non-breast cancer related mortality and are not eligible for postmenopausal hormone replacement therapy, it seems that the non-breast cancer related benefits associated with tamoxifen treatment outweigh the small risk of developing a tamoxifenstimulated recurrence in this population. We therefore suggest that nodenegative patients electing to receive tamoxifen be treated indefinitely; if disease recurrence is detected, the tamoxifen can be stopped at this point in an attempt to achieve an estrogen-induced cytotoxic response.
