Hormones are natural substances made by our glands in our body and the network of glands that make hormones is termed as endocrine
systems. These hormones are carried through bloodstream and act as a messenger between one part to another part of our body. Hormone
therapy is one of the major modalities of medical treatment for cancers which involves manipulation of the endocrine systems through exogenous
administration of steroid hormones or drugs inhibiting or interrupting activities of specific hormones. Surgical removal of certain endocrine organs
for instance oophorectomy can also be employed as a part of hormone therapy. In hormone therapy physician generally start with hormone
receptor test that let caregivers to measure amount of cancer proteins or hormone receptors within a cancer tissue. By estimating the amount of
hormones such as estrogen or progesterone the test either can be positive or negative. A positive test indicates growth of cancer cells with the
help of hormones. In such cases physician divert the hormone therapy by blocking the interaction of hormones with the hormone receptor.
Alternatively, in case of negative hormone receptor test which signifies null effect of hormones in growth and development of cancer cells other
effective treatments can be rendered to cure cancer.
