Hormone treatment

Hormone treatment may be used for uterine sarcoma in some circumstances.

Hormones are substances produced by glands in the body and circulated in the bloodstream. Some cancers depend on hormones for their growth.

If tests show the cancer cells have places where hormones can attach (receptors), hormone treatment may be used to remove hormones or block their action and stops cancer cells from growing.

Hormone treatments may have side effects. Discuss any problems or concerns with your doctors.
