PURPOSE: Phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of adjuvant therapy using tamoxifen or ovarian ablation with goserelin or both in treating women with stage I or stage II breast cancer.
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine, in a prospective, randomized, controlled trial whether the administration of a course of adjuvant tamoxifen or ablation of ovarian function results in prolongation of time to recurrence or death in patients under 50 years of age with operable carcinoma of the breast. II. Determine how hormone manipulation affects mood and sexual functioning in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a randomized study. Patients are stratified by clinician. All patients are randomized following primary therapy, which, in addition to surgery, may include local irradiation, perioperative cyclophosphamide, or up to 6 cycles of cyclophosphamide, methotrexate, and fluorouracil (CMF) for high-risk patients. Clinicians may elect to randomize patients to all groups or to only those groups including tamoxifen. The first group receives no further therapy. Then second group receives tamoxifen daily for at least 2 years. The third group receives ovarian ablation with goserelin via monthly injection for at least 2 years. The final group receives ovarian ablation with goserelin plus daily tamoxifen for at least 2 years. All patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years, every 6 months for 3 years, then annually.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: 800 to 1,000 patients will be entered.

A synthetic long-acting agonist of GONADOTROPIN-RELEASING HORMONE. Goserelin is used in treatments of malignant NEOPLASMS of the prostate, uterine fibromas, and metastatic breast cancer.
Surgery performed on any endocrine gland.
A procedure whereby the body is stimulated to generate extra soft tissue by the application of stretching forces that stimulate new growth of tissue which, over a period of time, results in a 2-dimensional expansion of the tissue. The procedure is used in reconstructive surgery for injuries caused by trauma, burns, or ablative surgery. Various types of TISSUE EXPANSION DEVICES have been developed that exert stretching forces.
One of the SELECTIVE ESTROGEN RECEPTOR MODULATORS with tissue-specific activities. Tamoxifen acts as an anti-estrogen (inhibiting agent) in the mammary tissue, but as an estrogen (stimulating agent) in cholesterol metabolism, bone density, and cell proliferation in the ENDOMETRIUM.
A fluid-filled closed cavity or sac that is lined by an EPITHELIUM and found in the BREAST. It may appear as a single large cyst in one breast, multifocal, or bilateral in FIBROCYSTIC BREAST DISEASE.
Endocrine disorders are grouped into two categories: hormone imbalance - when a gland produces too much or too little of an endocrine hormone development of lesions (such as nodules or tumors) in the endocrine system, which may or may not affect...
