Cyproterone functions as an anti-androgen medication targeting natural male sex hormones like testosterone. In men, androgens can contribute to the growth of cancer cells in specific types of prostate cancer. By inhibiting these hormones, cyproterone works to impede or halt cancer growth. In women, androgens can lead to increased hair growth, scalp hair loss, and heightened oil secretion from sweat glands. By blocking these hormones, cyproterone is effective in reducing or preventing these issues.
