Is anyone taking tamoxifen for prevention? How is it working out? High-risk here (three generations' direct maternal line with breast cancer ranging from 46-80, plus one maternal relative died of pancreatic cancer at 27, negative for all known mutations, extreme density, no pregnancies, frequent periods - i.e. high exposure to estrogen.


So I'm considering taking tamoxifen for prevention. I'm mid-forties, early perimenopause.


Any experience to share?
