Discussions that mention tamoxifen

Cancer board


Hi,

Last year I was dignosed with early stage breast cancer and elected to have a mastectomy without chemo. Since my sentinel nodes were negative for cancer, I refused chemo and continued follow-up treatment with Tamoxifen and Zoladex.

Last wk, I found a lump in my armpit on the same side of my body as the affected breast. Has anyone else had a tumor in a lymph node? What did it feel like? Was it close to the skin?

I have an appt with my Dr, but I want to get info asap since this is all I can think about today.

Thanks!
