Hormonal therapy is used in the case where a cancer takes the help of hormones for their growth. This treatment works by either blocking the body’s ability to produce hormones or by interfering with the behaviour necessary for the growth of cancer. It is mostly combined with other treatments like chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Hormonal therapy can be used in the case of breast cancer, prostate cancer, ovarian, uterine or thyroid cancers. And the type of hormone therapy depends on age of the patient, type and size of the tumor and presence of hormonal receptors in the tumor.
