Hormonal therapy is medicine or surgery that reduces estrogen in the body. Your doctor may also call this type of treatment endocrine or anti-estrogen therapy. It is used for cancers that depend on estrogen or progesterone to grow.
These types of cancers may be called hormone receptor-positive, estrogen receptor-positive or progesterone receptor-positive breast cancer.
Hormonal therapy is used to lower the risk of recurrence in early-stage disease and to slow growth in metastatic disease.
