Why would a bodybuilder take Tamoxifen?

I have breast cancer and will start Tamoxifen soon. I was doing an internet search to read more about the drug and a bunch of results popped up on bodybuilder websites? Why would they use this?

If it helps, while Tamoxifen acts against the effects of estrogen in breast tissue, it acts like estrogen in other tissue.
