Another point I’d like to make for people worried about a link between high testosterone and prostate cancer is that it just doesn’t make sense. Prostate cancer becomes more prevalent in men as they age, and that’s also when their testosterone levels decline. We almost never see it in men in their peak testosterone years, in their 20s for instance. We know from autopsy studies that 8% of men in their 20s already have tiny prostate cancers, so if testosterone really made prostate cancer grow so rapidly — we used to talk about it like it was pouring gasoline on a fire — we should see some appreciable rate of prostate cancer in men in their 20s. We don’t. So, I’m no longer worried that giving testosterone to men will make their hidden cancer grow, because I’m convinced that it doesn’t happen.
The content on this website is intended to provide general information about our clinic and services, and should not be mistaken for medical advice. We prescribe testosterone and other hormone therapy only after an in-office, comprehensive evaluation indicates that hormone therapy is safe and medically necessary. We do not prescribe testosterone or human growth hormone (HGH) or human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) solely for bodybuilding or athletic performance enhancement, or for solely "anti-aging" purposes. We do not prescribe HGH for off-label uses under any circumstances.
NOTE: Our physicians are "naturopathic physicians," not "physicians" or "osteopathic physicians," and neither "TRT" nor "integrative men's health" are "medical specialties."
