I have been on Aromasin for 13 months and I already had a cyst on my ovary which doubled in size. While the doctor is not necessarily saying it is due to the drug, I am wondering. Aromasin did work for me at first, however. I have been switched to Faslodex immediately. I will see how my body responds now that I am off Aromasin. Hmmm...

I took Aromasin but had side affects, then tried Arimidex and also had side effects. they ended up with putting me on Fermara, which I have taken for 3 1/2 yrs, its killed my bones and I dont know what else. I havent noticed any cysts. I have one on my kidney but they keep saying thats fine, ben there for years. I hope they;re right. I would get a 2nd opinion as to why you keep getting cysts tho. Seems awfully strange that you are getting so many of them. Please find out and take care Joyce

I used Aromasin for one year; it worked at first and because less effective. The doctor stopped it. I got ovarian cysts after taking the Aromasin, but, the doctors do not mention the possibility that the cause of the cysts could be the drug. Everytime something goes wrong -- its the cancer. Hmm...

Call your doctor at once if you have a serious side effect.
