Angiofibromad: There are three main types of treatment for juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma: hormone therapy, radiation therapy and surgery. Hormone therapy involves the use of a drug called flutamide, which acts by blocking testosterone receptors. The activity of this drug is further evidence for a hormonal cause for the condition. Treatment with Flutamide can shrink tumors by more than 40 percent.
