Hormone Therapy Medications

Hormone therapy (also known as endocrine therapy) is treatment that interferes with normal hormone activity. The female hormones estrogen and progesterone, and male hormones (androgens) including testosterone, can stimulate the growth of breast, ovarian and prostate cancer. Hormone therapies work by reducing hormone production or blocking their action in the body.
