Taking Tamoxifen long term, between 5-10 years after breast cancer.
Hi. I'm coming up on my 5th year anniversary of being cancer free and taking Tamoxifen. I had invasive ductal carcinoma. Lumpectomy followed by radiation. I had two lymph nodes with isolated tumor cells but tested negative for cancer. I've had zero side affects from taking the medication. I've found a few studies that show there is a long term benefit past the 10 year mark for staying on tamoxifen. I'm interested if people are staying on tamoxifen past the 5 year mark.
