Estrogen Blockers?

I have been diagnosed with ADH and will see an oncologist next week to discuss the possible use of estrogen blockers. What are oncologist ccalculations? How realiable are they?

Is there a right or wrong answer to using estrogen blockers for ADH? I realize that ADH isn't cancer just a disorder that puts me at a higher risk to develop breast cancer. Has the research shown that it is better one way than the other? Estrogen blockers vs. monthly breast self-exams, MRI's of the breast and noting any type of changes in the breast? I'm only 54 years old and not really sure what to do from here? I have a young teenager at home and would like to do everything proactively that I can.
Thank you for taking the time to answers my (our) questions.

Dear tk150:  We do not understand your question.  Statistics are the result of research, not calculations.  The oncologist is likely to discuss the potential benefits and risks of such an approach in your situation.
