My suggestion is to get the test if there's any way you can find the money for it. I say that because although Tamoxifen clearly saves lives, it can also have very significant side effects. Forget people who think they know the "root cause isn't being investigated." They are ignorant poppinjays and probably either have something unproven for sale or have fallen under the spell of some snake oil approach.
