    DCIS

    Has or is anyone taken tamoxifen for DCIS, I had a lumpectomy it was non-invasive, low to intermediate grade, I did not need radiation. From my understanding it actually isn’t even considered breast cancer at that stage, I have a recommendation to take tamoxifen For prevention,but it sounds like the side effects are worse than the chance I might get DCIS again. So I’m considering to not put myself through that, and just keeping a watchful eye on things, regular mammograms etc. No one that I am aware of on my moms side has a history of breast cancer. Interested in opinions on the matter
