Endocrinologists specialise in diseases relating to hormones.
Our endocrinologists have a special interest in helping men who are being treated for prostate cancer with hormone therapy. Hormone deprivation therapy, also called Androgen Deprivation Therapy (ADT) is used to inhibit the production of testosterone, which can discourage cancer cell production. It can cause some side effects, and an endocrinologist is an important part of the team to help manage any adverse effects.
Endocrinologists help patients manage the side effects of hormone therapy for prostate cancer.
