Hormone Therapy

A few types of ovarian cancer need hormones to grow. In these cases, hormone therapy may be a treatment option. Hormone therapy removes female hormones or blocks their action as a way of preventing ovarian cancer cells from getting or using the hormones they may need to grow. Hormone therapy is usually taken as a pill, but can be given as a shot.

Side Effects of Hormone Therapy
The side effects depend on the type of hormones being used. Some women retain fluid and have a change in appetite, or have hot flashes.
