Hormone therapy adds, blocks or removes hormones from the body. To slow or stop the growth of certain cancers such as prostate cancer and breast cancer, synthetic hormones or other drugs may be given to block the body’s natural hormones. Sometimes surgery is needed to remove the gland that produces a particular hormone.

Hormone therapy as a cancer treatment is available at Inova Alexandria Cancer Center and Inova Fairfax Hospital Cancer Center.
