Androcur is a cancer medication used to treat advanced prostate cancer (prostatic carcinoma) in adult men. This medication may also be used to treat hypersexuality in men.

Cyproterone is a progestin hormone that blocks the male sex hormone testosterone from being produced. By reducing testosterone, Androcur helps prevent the growth and spread of prostatic cancer cells. Through these actions the medication helps treat and reduce symptoms of advanced prostate cancer. When taken at low doses, the reduction in sex hormones can help reduce desire in men with an increased sex drive.
