Hormonal Therapy for Kidney Cancer

Hormones are chemical messengers that regulate specific body functions. Certain cancers use hormones to help them grow. Hormonal therapy is used in cancer treatment to interfere with the activity of certain hormones that can influence the growth of tumors.

Though hormone therapy is not considered an effective treatment for kidney cancer, it may be used to ease pain or other symptoms caused by metastatic cancer.
