Breast cancer nurse Susan Heard has said the new daily pill which lowers the risk of breast cancer represents a "step forward" in prevention and gives women at risk another option.
Thousands of women in England and Wales could significantly reduce their chances of being diagnosed with breast cancer by taking a daily pill to prevent the disease, under new guidance being given to doctors.
However Caroline Presho, who had a mastectomy to lower her risk of cancer, said she would choose surgery again due to the "risky" side effects of the Tamoxifen.
Women across Britain with a family history of breast cancer are to be offered drugs on the NHS to help prevent the disease.
Women now have a wider choice and more facts to help them make probably the most difficult decision of their lives.
