Tamoxifen after ALH diagnosis
Just joined the group.
Recently diagnosed with ALH (Atypical Lobular Hyperplasia).
Met with an oncologist and discussed about going on 5mg Tamoxifen for 5 years.
I am 52 and perimenopausal…had some heavy bleeding issues in the last few years and did a endometrial biopsy which came back negative.
I have to decide whether to go on Tamoxifen or not by my next appointment in a couple of weeks.
- With my bleeding history, concerned about uterine cancer if I go on Tamoxifen.
Would like to hear from anyone that was in similar situation and went on Tamoxifen.
My thought process as of now is … I can have a yearly detailed Mammogram to catch breast cancer early on but there is nothing in place for me to catch Uterine cancer. Am I putting myself at higher risk of uterine cancer by taking Tamoxifen?
- Anyone that was diagnosed with ALH and decided to not take Tamoxifen and how is it going?
