Prostate Problems and Testosterone Therapy
You can’t read anything about testosterone therapy without it being followed up with a warning about prostate issues and even prostate cancer. It was common knowledge that if you participated in Testosterone therapy, you would ultimately suffer from prostate issues. Testosterone therapy has been represented as a proverbial pact with the devil by trading short-term sexual and physical rewards for the ultimate development of cancer. For the longest time, the medical community theorized that testosterone replacement therapy increased one’s risk of prostate cancer. Now, physician, Harvard-based Abraham Morgentaler, MD, FACS, has shown this theory to be inaccurate.
Contrary to the notion that restoring testosterone to youthful levels is somehow risky, Dr. Morgentaler meticulously shows that there is also an increased risk of prostate cancer in aging men with low testosterone. This exact information about the dangers of declining testosterone levels was detailed quite a while back, actually, by the Life Extension Foundation. In his book, Dr. Morgentaler details how the medical community can accept a medical myth. Furthermore, by the masses, it could take years, even decades, for that misinformation to be re-established.
For instance, the establishment’s misconception about testosterone and prostate cancer has condemned millions of aging men to suffer degenerative diseases caused by dwindling testosterone levels until just a few years ago. It was almost universally believed that Testosterone protocols would lead to some degree of increased risk of prostate issues or even cancer. Fortunately, this belief has been shown to be incorrect, and medical opinion has shifted quite dramatically, with good evidence that testosterone therapy is safe for the prostate. There is even now a growing concern that low testosterone is a risk for prostate cancer rather than high testosterone.
The very origin of the idea that Testosterone therapy causes prostate cancer is a fantastic story involving Nobel Prize winners, medical breakthroughs, and a critical paradox that took two-thirds of a century to solve. The relationship of testosterone to prostate cancer has undergone a significant re-evaluation, and all recent evidence has reinforced the position that testosterone therapy is safe for the prostate. The advantage of living in the 21st century is that you don’t have to take any information at face value. It would be best if you always took the time to complete your research and investigate the information you are being served quickly.
We are fortunate to live in a time where we can take charge and find answers and details to information we would not have had access to 10 years ago. We are especially considering how contradicting and negative most of the information regarding the health of your prostate and testosterone therapy is. You must take this outdated idea and do your research. Imagine living in the fog of low testosterone based on misinformation.
How devastating would it be to find out that your knowledge base was completely inaccurate? How would you feel to know that the past decade you could have felt better, looked better or been better? Don’t let that happen to you. At AAI, we process comprehensive panels to ensure that you are healthy enough to undergo hormone therapy and keep unwanted side effects at bay. Furthermore, we schedule periodic follow-ups, based on your program, to check and see how your hormones are progressing while on therapy to ensure your dosage is right for you throughout your program.

We look forward to hearing from you.
Testosterone Injections are the most common treatment for men going through andropause. This therapy may provide help and relief from the symptoms and help improve the quality of life in many cases—also, lifestyle changes such as increased exercise, stress reduction, and proper nutrition help. Testosterone therapy is available in different forms; ask your doctor.
He will help determine which treatment is best for you.
- TESTOSTERONE INJECTIONS: This treatment involves doses of bioidentical (Testosterone Cypionate, Testosterone Enanthate, and Testosterone Propionate).
- TESTOSTERONE PATCHES: People who wear a piece containing testosterone receive the hormone through the skin. The patches allow a slow, steady release of testosterone into the bloodstream.
- TESTOSTERONE GEL: This treatment is applied directly to the skin, usually on the arms. Because the gel may transfer to other individuals through skin contact, a person must wash the gel from the hands after each application.
- TESTOSTERONE CAPSULES: This is yet another option for testosterone replacement. Men with liver disease, poor liver function, severe heart or kidney disease, or too much calcium in their blood should avoid testosterone capsules. Follow-up visits with your doctor will be necessary after the initial treatment begins. At follow-up visits, your doctor will check your response to the treatment and make necessary adjustments.
