I am a breast cancer survivor, and am currently taking tamoxifen which although small increases our risk of Uterine cancer. On another forum someone posted about an article by the director of MO of an SF Bay Area cancer center: If a patient is premenopausal and continues to menstruate on tamoxifen, which happens quite often, there is essentially no risk for endometrial cancer, as the uterine lining is shed each month, thereby eliminating any cells that were "pre-malignant." Have you heard of this? curious I am.
