What are hormones?

Hormones are your body’s special chemical messengers which are created in the endocrine glands. The endocrine glands include glands such as the pancreas, thyroid, and testes in men and ovaries in women.

What is hormonal therapy?

Hormone therapy is a kind of treatment that works by adding, removing or blocking hormones from the body to stop or slow the growth of cancer cells. Cancers such as breast cancer and prostate cancer can be encouraged by hormones. However, sometimes the same hormones can slow, stop or kill the cancer cells. Hormone therapy involves using medications that prevent the cancer cells from getting the hormones they need to grow. Hormone therapy may be combined with other cancer treatments, such as radiotherapy and chemotherapy.

How hormone therapy works

Some cancers are hormone dependent or hormone sensitive, which implies that they need the hormones to grow and develop. Understanding the role of hormones is key to protecting and managing health. Hormone therapies can slow down or completely stop the growth of cancer by preventing the hormones from making the cancer cells grow and multiply or by stopping the hormones from being made.

Types of hormone therapy

Factors that influence the type of hormone therapy you get include age, type of tumor, the size of tumor and presence of hormone receptors on the tumor. The type of cancer you have is a factor used to determine the type of hormone therapy you will require:

  • Breast cancer hormone therapy
  • Womb cancer hormone therapy
  • Ovarian cancer hormone therapy
  • Prostate cancer hormone therapy
  • Kidney cancer hormone therapy
  • Thyroid cancer hormone therapy
