There are already several antiandrogen drugs on the market that are used regularly to treat prostate cancer.

Bicalutamide, apalutamide, and enzalutamide are three. There are a few others.

Researchers are looking into whether antiandrogens might also be effective in breast cancer treatment.

The drugs (pill form) already exist, so it might be a relatively easy addition for certain breast cancers.

Something to keep an eye on.
