I have Atopia Hyperplasia, I don't know what that medicine does but after many years I now developed Atopia Hepithelial Hyperplesia and had a premalignant lump removed. Do the research regarding the medication before you get it injected in your breast.

Use of Raloxifene is intended to decrease the risk of osteoporosis and to decrease the risk of invasise breast cancer or to prevent invasive breast cancer from retuning in women who have had invasive BC.

If you have questions or concerns about using it, it would be best to discuss them with the physician who prescribed it.

Best wishes...
