This procedure is painless and the patient does not feel anything when the treatment is going on. 4) Hormonal Therapy Hormonal therapy medicines are whole-body (systemic) treatment for hormone- receptor-positive breast cancers. Hormone receptors are like ears on breast cells that listen to signals from hormones. These signals "turn on" growth in cells that have receptors. Hormonal therapy medicines can be used to lower the risk of early-stage hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer coming back, lower the risk of hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer in women who are at high risk but haven't been diagnosed with breast cancer and help shrink or slow the growth of advanced-stage or metastatic hormone-receptor-positive breast cancers For more information visit: http://www.medworldindia.com https://www.facebook.com/medworld.india Please scan and email your medical reports to us at care@medworldindia.com and we shall get you a Free Medical Opinion from India’s Best Doctors.
