What is Letrocon and how it works
Letrocone contains an active substance called letrozole. It belongs to a group of medicines called aromatase inhibitors. It is used for hormonal (or endocrine) treatment of breast cancer. Breast cancer tumor growth is often stimulated by estrogens, which are female sex hormones. Letrocone reduces the amount of estrogens by blocking the enzyme (aromatase) involved in their formation, and thus may block the growth of breast cancer that needs estrogens for its growth. As a result, tumor cells slow or stop their growth and / or spread to other parts of the body.
