Mayo Clinic and John Hopkins web site quote similar percent of future cancer.
7% after 5 years
13 % after 10 years

What the web site does not give is details of what population the statistics are based on, Is this all women with and without treatment? With or without surgery ?

Discuss with your onocologist the risk with and without treatment.

Here is Mayo's web site that discuss complications (risk):

In a 12 yr study I came across, only 20% of ADH women advanced to cancer - even without preventative strategies. (National Library of Medicine - breast cancer research)
