Hormone replacement therapy

Hormone therapy is a cancer treatment that slows down or stops the development of cancer which uses hormone to grow. Hormone therapy is also known as hormone treatment, or endocrine therapy.

Hormone therapy is used to:

  • Treat cancer. Hormone therapy can reduce the chance of cancer that will return or stop or slows the growth.
  • Ease cancer symptoms. Hormone therapy is used to reduce or prevent symptoms in men with prostate cancer who are not able to have surgery or radiation therapy.

Types of Hormone Therapy

Hormone therapy is of two groups, that block the body’s ability to produce hormones and those that involve with how hormones act in the body.

When hormone therapy is used with other treatments then it can:

  • Makes the tumour cells smaller before surgery or radiation therapy. This is called neo adjuvant therapy.
  • Decreases the risk that cancer will come back after the main treatment. This is called adjuvant therapy.
  • Destroy cancer cells that have reappear or spread to other parts of your body.
