: Just had a lumpectomy a few weeks ago...stage 1`, grade 2 ductal invasive...Oncologist has prescribed Tamoxifen but after reading many side effects I am hesitant about taking it. Radiation treatment will start in a few weeks. I would like to know what the odds are if I do not take tamoxifen.Will appreciate any helpful reply.Thankyou.
J.M. I too had a lumpectomy a few weeks ago. The doctors wanted to start chemo then radiation, when I said no they said I had to do Tamaxifen and I had the same concerns you did. I found a product that has better results and also none of the side effects, with lots of studies to back it up. It's called Indole 3-Carbinol (IC3) I got it from Life Extension. Good Luck!
