    These tools are very general. I take don’t take them that seriously. Trust your doctors, make your choices and don’t look back. If cancer gets you, it gets you. It’s always in the shadows.

    Hi there @DearB
    You probably did nothing wrong !
    As has been said, these things are a guide only and your treatment team are the ones likely to know what is applicable to you.
    Wait and ask questions at your next appointment - no good stressing about things which may not be.
    Summer  :)

    Sorry @DearB that sounded harsher than I meant it to. I just mean, you can't change the past.Take care.

    Why would you think the treatment would increase your risk of ovarian cancer?
  • DearBDearB Member Posts: 168
    I think tamoxifen increases the risk of ovarian cancer.   ????  Am I wrong

    Hi @DearB. Tamoxifen slightly increases the risk of endometrial cancer, not ovarian cancer.  Having said that, the consensus is that the benefits outweigh the risks.  
    Again, ask these questions at your next appointment
    Take care,

    @DearB the stats surrounding chemo can be quite distressing. Increases in survival rates are frequently 1 - 5 % Which, if you know about tools like this, can make decisions very, very difficult to make.

    @DearB I agree listen to your Oncologist mine like Afraser's showed me this tool also and explained the reasons why he was suggesting the treatments he was and what he would be doing if it was himself. 
    I felt and still do 5 years out with NO evidence of disease I made the right choices for me. 
    Breathe in and let it out, ask you onco for information about this and his/her view of it in light of why they are suggesting your treatment plan ahead.
