Tamoxifen is prescribed for chronic mastalgia at a dosage of one 10- or 20-mg tablet for 3-6 months. A topical preparation of this drug has recently been approved. The aim of this study was to meta-analyze the effectiveness of tamoxifen and its different regimens for the treatment of mastalgia. We also sought to summarize the side effects and the follow-up results of these treatments.
