I too have just had a lumpectomy and am still waiting for results. Have you been told about or heard about hormone therapy? I understand tamoxofin is quite a common hormone therapy for pre menopausal women with breast cancer or at high risk for breast cancer. Maybe for menopausal women too? May be worth checking out? According to my surgeon, depending on my results, I may need an axillary dissection, radiation treatments or tamoxofin. I am 42 years old.
