Thought you may wish to read the following

WESTPORT, Feb 16 (Reuters Health) - Tamoxifen use is associated
with a "pathological spectrum" of endometrial abnormalities, as
well as adverse effects on the cervix and ovary, a UK pathologist
reports in the current issue of the Journal of Clinical
Pathology.  Dr.  Sezgin M. Ismail, of the University of Wales,
Cardiff, UK, warns that these side effects "...will be seen with
increasing frequency."  He predicts that long-term use of the
drug will continue, even though optimal treatment duration has
not been established, because of the publicity generated by the
recent US prevention study.
