Tamoxifen is the most commonly prescrived antiestrogenic drug used in hormone therapy to treat breast cancer. In many cases the presence or absence of estrogen and progesterone can alter the growth rate of breast cancers. In these cases the cancer is said to be hormone-dependent. This means there is a receptor in the cell (proteins called estrogen receptors) that lets the estrogen molecule enter the cancer cell and promote growth. When estrogen comes in contact with the cells carrying these estrogen receptors, the estrogen binds with the receptors in a way that induces growth of these cancer cells. Tamoxifen can work to block the estrogen receptors that stimulate cancer cell growth.
