4. "vastly less drastic" unless you have awful mood-related side effects

There are risks of surgery, of course, but I've been through a mastectomy/reconstruction (for early stage cancer) and do not take tamoxifen. I would choose a mastectomy for my remaining breast over another mood-altering hormone-affecting drug any day. Quality of life (without mood-altering drugs depressing me) is more important than keeping my second breast. But that's just me.
