Ask-the-Expert Online Conference
- Question from DonnaM: I know there is some data to suggest the use of tamoxifen in high-risk women without a breast cancer diagnosis, but is there any reason why a woman with BRCA1 or 2 would need tamoxifen AFTER having prophylactic surgeries if she has not been diagnosed with the disease?
- Answers - Lynn Hartmann That's a very good question. I would say if you had prophylactic mastectomy there would be no need to take tamoxifen.
- Beth Baughman DuPree, M.D., F.A.C.S. I completely agree.
