tamoxifen concerns

After just having a mx and snb and finally on Tuesday been given the news the bc has gone… I have been put on tamoxifen 20 mg for 5 years… I have been reading risks concerning womb cancer etc and other side affects… should we be worried even though prescribed these tablets.

Hi tracy2905

While you’re waiting for some replies to your post I wondered if you’d seen our fact sheet on Tamoxifen.  I’ve attached a link:

You might also find it helpful to talk this over with one of our Helpline staff.  They are open from 9-5 on weekdays and 10-2 on Saturdays.  The number is 0808 800 6000

Very best wishes
