Good morning, khoagland. I was just speaking with my MO yesterday about my concerns with starting tamoxifen since I've had fibroids for years. I had an ultrasound performed right before my surgery last year where my ob/gyn counted my fibroids and recorded their locations and sizes. My MO promises me that I'll have a uterine lining measurement each year at my ob/gyn while I'm taking the drug.

Sorry I can't answer your question. Hoping someone chimes in as I've read that the drug can increase the size of fibroids and cause other uterine issues, too.

My mother got a hysterectomy on Tamoxifen due to what they said was some kind of uterine cancer (she later claimed they misdiagnosed her) but I don’t know what it did to her fibroids.
