Tamoxifen can increase a women's risk for endometrial cancer (cancer of the uterus).

In brief: No

Tamoxifen has not been associated with ovarian cancer.
However, it has been associated with a 1 in 300 risk of uterine cancer. The benefit of decrease in breast cancer far outweighs the risk of uterine cancer. The recommendation is to do a biopsy if you have bleeding on tamoxifen.
