Overall increase is small, though, adding 1 cancer per 1,000 women treated
My father was on Tarceva with Gemzar (if I recall). Unfortunately it didn't seem to help him. His cancer was pretty advanced and metasticized to his stomach not long after he started treatment.
There had been a lot of positive reports on the drug and it seemed promising. Unfortunately, much of the treatment options seem to be a bit of a crap shoot due to so many variables being involved. Hope it helps you...
My father was diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer mid August, 2010. He lost his battle on 11/6/2010.
