Tamoxifen vs HRT

7 Nov 2019 20:43

My partner has been screened as high risk. She was on HRT now she has been advised to start Tamoxifen but she would have to stop HRT oestrogen based one and has been asked to decide what she wants to do. Neither of us know and we are looking for some advise.

Hello,

you say your partner has been screened as high risk? Does she have the braca gene? Does she have a lump?

How confusing, so the lump was benign? Not too sure why they would suggest tamoxifen.....it might be worth posting this on the nurses thread? 

Im sorry I haven't been able to shed any light on this for you....
