After having surgery, the result being Atypical lobular hyperplasia
it has been recommended that I start on Tamoxiten.
I really do not want to start this drug since I do not have cancer.

Hi,

Atypical lobular hyperplasia has hih chances of developing into cancer in the future.

Tamoxifen is known to decrease the risk of developing cancer in the future in patients with Atypical lobular hyperplasia.

Talk to your oncologist in detail about this and clear out any doubts that you have.

It would be best to follow the management plan as advised by your specialist.

Let us know if you have any more doubts.

Regards.
