I recently had a lumpectomy because I was found to have atypical cells. The exact diagnosis was, Atypical papillary lesion. Intraductal papillon, with focal microcalcifications. Atypical ductal hyperplasia. Atypical lobular hyperplasia, with involvement of duct. I go next week to consult with an oncologist. Seems they may want me to take meds to prevent cancer. I'm just wondering, from folks that have experience with this, is this a good idea? I am healthy. Am not on any meds except vitamins, etc. I am concerned about the side effects of Tamoxifen and Raloxifene.
