hi everyone

I was diagnosed with lcis and mi tumor end of Dec 2020.

had lumpectomy and rads.

I am premenopoausal and have to take Tamoxifen.

Now I read a lot of articles that Tamoxifen does not do a lot with lcis ?

Who knows more about this?

Good luck to you all

I just posted a recent study that shows lobular, which is not LCIS, can use tamoxifen to feed the cancer in some instances. I don't know how that applies to a LCIS. Can you print the abstract and discuss with your oncologist?

Dx 4/07 1 month before turning 50; ILC 1.8cm, ER+/PR+, HER2 neg., Stage 1, Grade 2, 0/5 nodes. Onco score 20, Bilateral Mast., tamoxifen 3-1/2 years, arimidex-completed 4/20/2012
