Amita, I believe Phyllis answered your earlier post with this same question - but perhaps you didn't see it? Your oncologist will want to know about your enlarged lymph nodes. They may be swollen as a result of an infection; or due to something in the hormone therapy; or for some unknown reason. But only your oncologist can diagnose and treat this issue, so please do get in touch with him/her ASAP and report this, OK? Good luck - I hope you do well on the hormone therapy. PJH
