tomoxifin and bone cancer

My aunt had an aggressive tumor removed from her breast, along with a few nodes, which had very little in them. She was put on Tomoxifin and now may be changed to a newer drug, maybe Arimedex. She is not sure how the bones are affected by these drugs either trigger bone cancer, and is one safer than the other concerning getting bone cancer ? Is it true that it's when you go off of them, then the estrogen increases and that's what triggers the cancer ? Thanx for your help !

Re: tomoxifin and bone cancer

I have never heard of Tamoxifen contributing to the risk of bone cancer, but I do know that it may increase the risk of developing cervical cancer.
