Frankie Ann Holmes, MD, a physician at Texas Oncology, discusses neoadjuvant endocrine therapy for patients with breast cancer.

There will always be patients who do not choose to receive chemotherapy for tumors that are too large to remove by surgery, states Holmes. Some fast-growing tumors in select breast cancer subtypes may respond to deprivation of estrogen more than chemotherapy, explains Holmes.
