      Your doctor will have options for you. It is possible this could be a side effect of Tamoxifen. Not being doctors, we can't know how you will be treated for this condition. We know you want an answer immediately because you are worried. I think we all become hypersensitive after having gone through the arduous treatment for breast cancer. You are asking the questions I would ask too. The options are probably either a D&C or a partial hysterectomy. If it is a D&C, you will probably be followed very closely to see if it comes back. If it does, surgery to remove your uterus may be an option depending on your reproductive plans. All of my answers are just ponderings and nothing I have experienced myself. These are also experiences of my friends who have had endometrial hyperplasia NOT caused by tamoxifen.
      My thoughts are that although stopping tamoxifen may be one of the options, you will still probably have to have, at least, a D&C to remove the hyperplasia. I would think stopping the drug is a last resort choice since this is so important to prevent you from having a recurrence of BC.
      Instead of me playing armchair Gyn. you will soon have the real doctor discussing this with you. Take care, Sharon

      If you have a regular doctor or GYN, they should get you in right away to do a breast exam. The next step at your age would probably be an ultrasound. That is very good that you are getting this checked out, and good chance that this lump is benign.

      A lot would depend on the biology of your tumor, your family history, how wide spread, or if you have a genetic mutation. For DCIS, stage 0 breast cancer, without the above factors, if the DCIS is hormone positive, it is usual to take anti hormones when you receive lumpectomy, with or without radiation. With mastectomy, it may or may not be given, depending on your individual factors, such as mentioned above or young age. My mother had DCIS and had a lumpectomy followed by radiation twice a day for 5 days. For IDC, I had a partial mastectomy, 6 weeks of rads, and take Femara. I also have an implant. It comes down to a personal choice, and what you are most comfortable with, and what your doctor recommends.

      You might want to ask your oncologist or radiologist if it is ok to take glutamine. 15 grams twice a day of pure L-glutamine powder is sometimes recommended for cancer patients with neuropathy. But, I wouldn't recommend taking any supplements without your doctor's approval.

      You need to have this checked. Betti's suggestion is a good one. You can also go to a Planned Parenthood Clinic as they have a sliding fee scale.
