I'm 52, pre-menopausal. My open biopsy showed Flat Epithelial Atypia (FEA), and my surgeon is suggesting I see an oncologist for a course of Tamoxifen for 5 years. He says research shows it decreases the chances of getting cancer by 50% for women with FEA. Do you agree? Is FEA hormone receptive? Should I have genetic testing, as my mother had breast cancer 25 years ago (survived), two great aunts died from it, my grandmother had uterine cancer (survived), and 2 great aunts died from it. My mom now has bladder cancer, Dad has colon cancer, and had prostate cancer and melanoma. My brother had testicular cancer (survived). Whew!
