I'm just curious as to how many of you have been diagnosed with uterine cancer while taking the drug tomoxafen.  If you were ...... did you have any of the symptoms such as bleeding, pain in the pelvic region, etc.   I'm scheduled for my third D&C within two years and am on the drug.  Apparently this time is thicker than usual.  Just trying to get a little more understanding of the disease.  Thanks.

When I had a benign lump removed from my left breast in 2009 the surgeon wanted me to take tamoxifen.  I said no, I don't take pills unless I have to.  After I was dx in 2012 with UPSC I had to wonder just how worse could it have been if I had been taking tamoxifen?!  Scary to think about.  

Uterine cancer is a possible side effect from taking tamoxifen but everyone needs to make the decisions that are best for themselves.  Good luck and I hope it is nothing serious.
