I've been on Arimidex for nearly 5 years with minimum side effects but have recently developed a small (1cm) lesion on my liver. Numerous scans have not been able to define whether it is malignant or benign. Since chemo has been known to affect liver, and since Arimidex is a form of chemo, I'm curious to hear if there have been other instances.
Arimidex (anastrozole) is a non-steroidal aromatase inhibitor, medications of this class do cause liver damage on occasion, usually inflamation of the liver, but other types of damage (such as lesions) could be a possibility. Hope this helps... Next time if you could post dosage, condition(s) and other meds you are currently taking (if you feel comfortable doing so), we can usually give you a far more accurate answer.
