Our medical oncologists, along with other Mercy cancer specialists, provide treatment options including endocrine therapy, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery to treat a variety of cancers.
Endocrine therapy is a treatment that adds, blocks or removes hormones. It is used to treat a variety of conditions such as breast cancer, prostate cancer, uterine cancer, diabetes and menopause. The existence of some hormones can help some cancers to grow. When used to treat certain cancers, the drugs utilized in endocrine therapy slow down or stop the growth of the cancer. Endocrine therapy can be used in conjunction with surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
Endocrine therapy, used to treat specific conditions and cancers, blocks certain hormones in the body and causes the cancer cells to grow slower and reduce the size of the cancerous tumors. Although endocrine therapy will not cure cancer, it can help control the cancer, relieve symptoms and decrease the risk of the cancer returning after treatment.
