Patients given exemestane show higher risk of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

According to an international study in Lancet Oncology, the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome is higher in patients who suffer from breast cancer and are given exemestane than the patients who are administered tamoxifen. Aromatase inhibitors are more effective than tamoxifen in preventing breast cancer from recurring, but this is at the expense of side effects such as carpal tunnel syndrome. The study was aimed at studying and assessing the risk factors involved and the prognostic value of musculoskeletal symptoms in the course of treatment with the steroidal aromatase inhibitor exemestane or with tamoxifen after 2—3 years of tamoxifen.

PET/CT Scans Valuable for Follow-ups in Cancer patients

A study presented at the Multidisciplinary Head, Neck Cancer Symposium, sponsored by AHNS, ASCO, ASTRO and SNM says that the use of positron emission (PET/CT) tomography /computed tomography scans in head and neck in cancer patient’s follow-up can detect local recurrences before they become clinically apparent. These PET/CT scans might also improve the outcome of the subsequent salvage therapy. Whenever recurrence is suspected in a patient, most head and neck cancer follow-up studies use (FDG-PET) Fluorodeoxyglucose-PET scans and PET scan is a relatively new test. The use of this as a routine follow up for head and neck cancer patients is highly controversial.
