Medication: Taking medicines to help lower the risk of getting a disease is called chemoprevention. The most commonly used medicines to lower breast cancer risk are tamoxifen and raloxifene. Other medicines called aromatase inhibitors also can be used.  The drugs used for chemoprevention are typically not used to treat cancer.
