Letrozole 2.5mg contains an active substance called letrozole. It belongs to a of medicines called aromatase inhibitors. It is a hormonal or endocrine breast cancer treatment. Growth of breast cancer is frequently stimulated by oestrogens, which are female sex hormones.

As a consequence tumour cells slow or stop growing and or spreading to other parts of the body. Important: Letrozole (value) will take 7 days to ship
