    Hormone therapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Unsure about whether or not to take tamoxifen. Not sure the benefits (which would be extremely minimal for me) out weight the side effects.

    Easy to Do: Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Neutral/NA
