Hormonal Therapy

Hormonal treatment blocks the cancer cells from obtaining the hormones (like estrogen) they need to grow. Cancers that are sensitive to hormones are referred to as estrogen receptor positive (ER positive) or progesterone receptor positive (PR positive) cancers. This therapy, coupled with other treatments, can decrease the likelihood of the cancer returning.
