Castration - Definition


Definition


Castration is an act which makes an individual incapable of reproducing. Castration is allowed only for therapeutic purposes. Castration can be achieved by surgery, but it can also be done by chemical methods through the use of hormones. Male surgical castration involves the removal of the testicles also called orchiectomy. Medical or chemical castration uses analogues of certain hormones and is sometimes used in the treatment of advanced prostate cancers. In women, castration involves the removal of the ovaries.
