About your treatment:

Your doctor has ordered the drug goserelin to help treat your illness. This drug is given by injection under the skin in the stomach area, usually every 28 days or every 3 months. The medication is slowly released into your bloodstream over that period. This medication is used to treat: prostate cancer endometriosis advanced breast cancer in premenopausal and perimenopausal women This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for information. Goserelin is a synthetic hormone. In men, it stops the production of the hormone testosterone, which may stimulate the growth of cancer cells. In women, goserelin decreases the production of the hormone estradiol (which may stimulate the growth of cancer cells) to levels similar to a postmenopausal state. When the medication is stopped, hormone levels return to normal.
