Is hormone therapy really helpful?

Is this phase of breast cancer really necessary?  What is the reocurrance rate if not part of therapy?

If your tumor was ER+ it is definitely an integral part of the therapy. Blocking the production of the hormone that the tumor depends on for growth certainly can reduce your risk of recurrance.
