    Testosterone therapy may be safe for men with prostate cancer

    New research claims Testosterone therapy may be safe for men with prostate cancer

    Doctors have long held that men with prostate cancer should not be given testosterone because the hormone might fuel tumor growth. But a small study adds to evidence that the fear may be overblown, at least in patients without evidence of recurrent or metastatic disease.

    Researchers studied 13 men with scores of 6 or 7 on the 10-point Gleason scale, indicating mildly to moderately aggressive prostate cancer. They all initially chose watchful waiting rather than treatment for their cancers. All the men had low testosterone.

    The men received testosterone therapy for an average of two and a half years, and had periodic prostate biopsies. None of their cancers progressed or spread to other organs. One subject whose score had increased to 7 from 6 had his prostate removed, but the final pathological exam found no aggressive disease.

    The authors acknowledge that the study, published in the April issue The Journal of Urology, was small and retrospective. Still, it is the first to use biopsies to monitor the effects of testosterone in men with untreated, localized prostate cancer.

    The lead author, Dr. Abraham Morgentaler, an associate clinical professor of surgery at Harvard, said that the findings of this and other recent studies suggest that the risks of testosterone therapy may have been exaggerated.

    Sorry to hear that. Good luck. My father had his prostate removed a few years ago. He's fine now but super skinny. What happens to men as far as maintaining muscle and sexual ability if we have to remove our prostates. My dad is super super skinny these days. I'm waiting for the day I get it. Its in my family and I cycle from time to time....I know its comming.

    I love reading positive information about testosterone. And I love the word Testosterone - sounds like an Italian God.

    Its in my family to my brother and my dad did not have it they both died of heart disease but my uncle had it, as far as maintaining muscle I don't know but my surgeon said he could not guarantee that I would not have ED and some incontinence but if I have to have radiation treatment after surgery its pretty much a given I will impotent within a few years, but I am lucky it was caught early. I have a physical every year, so that saved me before it spread outside of my prostate. Thanks everyone for wishing me well.

    Not being able to enjoy a sex life and ability is the scariest part to understand for me. Were you a healthy guy. I'm in my early 20s on TRT and I take sellenium, lycopene, vitamin a, saw palmetto, magnezium, zinc along with my other vitamins everyday. I've been told these are the best at thwarting off prostate cancer.
