Thanks for posting.
It’s natural to require more information about taking tamoxifen to reduce your risk of developing breast cancer, as this is an important decision for you.
You could contact the clinic where you had your genetic testing performed to discuss this further. If you’ve been discharged, your GP may be able to refer you back there. Research has proven that those with moderate risk of developing breast cancer because of family history, may benefit from taking tamoxifen.
You’re also welcome to call our free, confidential Helpline if you would like to talk this through or have any further questions. The number is 0808 800 6000.
Our opening hours are Monday to Friday 9am - 4pm and 9am -1pm on Saturday. Out of hours you can leave a message and we will call you back when we next open.
We are currently reviewing our Forum service and wonder if you would have five to 10 minutes to complete a short survey. The survey will help us gather information about this service and understand more about any improvements we can make.
