The article at https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/... titled "Unveiling the mechanism of action behind the anti-cancer properties of cannabinoids in ER+ breast cancer cells: Impact on aromatase and steroid receptors" (sorry, can't eliminate the bold text) seems interesting. I will mention it to my oncologist in October. I wonder if her hair will curl when she hears this. I don't know if cannabinoids have been mentioned in regard to breast cancer--there are too many posts. But just in case. If my oncologist would agree, however, I'd also have to get the OK by my cardiologist. The joys of growing --not old--but older!

jinnyh,

We have a thread on cannabis basics if you are interested:

https://community.breastcancer.org/forum/79/topics/874792?page=14#post_5743441

Not only is my mo aware of my cannabis use but when I was first dx’ed the social worker at my medical facility offered to help me obtain a medical cannabis card. My state is now legal for medical and recreational use.

Hi exbrnxgrl: Thanks for the info. However, I fear I won't be able to take cannabis orally because I looked up the interactions and it interacts with the blood thinner I have to take for my arrhythmia and could produce bleeding. When it's not one thing, it's another. I will probably try astragalus, which is supposed to have anti-cancer properties and is also good for the heart. I currently take quercetin, curcuma, and transfer factors. Until yesterday I was also taking graviola, but I decided to give it a rest because of my trigger thumb problems. I read it can cause neuropathology. Till now I have blamed the Arimidex, but Graviola may have also influenced it.
