I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 46, (3) stage 1 tumors, lumpectomy 3 surgeries, chemo & radiation.  I am 2 years past my treatment, now 49 years old.  After all my treatment I celebrated menopause and the end of my period.  I am now having spotting, almost enough to think my period is returning.  Is that possible?  (hoping not)

Hi Luv2foto-

Are you taking tamoxifen? In some women, it can cause intermittent vaginal bleeding (http://www.breastcancer.org/tips/menopausal/ask_ex...). However, like Hopeful said, any spotting after menopause should be discussed with your doctor, to determine what the cause could be.
