Just had my pap test a little over a week ago and received a call today saying that my pap was negative but they had found endometrial cells. Since I have been on tamoxifen for 4 months and I know that it can cause uterine cancer I have to have an ultrasound and possible biopsy to figure out what is going on. The only good news is that I get to stop taking tamoxifen until further notice so maybe my extreme hot flashes will go away for a while at least. I am feeling a bit apprehensive about stopping the tamoxifen because my cancer was highly er/pr+, but will follow my very wise oncologists recommendation and stop until the uterus thing is cleared up. I'm sure something is brewing and hopefully they caught it early and can be solved quickly.
Just wondering if anyone has had this happen such a short time after starting tamoxifen.
On the plus side all my bloodwork came back looking good. It was 1 year ago tomorrow that I was diagnosed.
