Tibolone - Additional Information

Studies have shown that tibolone may be associated with a slight increased risk of both stroke and endometrial cancer. It may also be associated with an increased risk of breast cancer. Regularly check your breast for any changes such as dimpling of the skin, changes in the nipple, changes in the nipple, or any lumps you can see or feel. The risk of breast cancer returns to normal within a few years after stopping treatment.
