    Are prostate issues common with TRT






    I am 46 and been having some urination issues, my stream isnt as strong as it used to be and it takes me longer to urinate. My psa has been steady at 0.6 and my uri says it feels normal although slightly larger than normal..he estimates my size at 20 grams but says it seems normal.
    anyone else have these issues? He says i can take propecia because " it kills 2 birds with 1 stone".
    stops hair loss and shrinks the proatate. He says i dont need it but its a good preventative med.
    he says all the rumors of irreversible side effects are no sense. I am tempted to start using it.

    Have you had your E2 checked? BPH is a reported side effect of TRT.

    PSA looks good, 0.0-4.0 is the range. Prostate cancer is not caused by Test. If you get it, then T makes it grow faster.

    Enlarged prostate is pretty common starting around 50 years. Stream issues may be something else as well, like Peyrones syndrome (sp?) or something.
    Me, I wont take anything for it.

    I get PSA included with any TRT bloodwork. Had to actually push my endo to include it. I found another DR who does only TRT and checks everything the guys here recommend and then some.

    I've been on trt for years and lead a good life!! I hope in the future it becomes better for trt patients as dr.'s are usually too scared to prescribe reasonable amounts of the drug. That needs to change especially after age 40 and 50.

    Plant Sterols and Valerian root extract work well without getting script meds. Preventive would be herbs. TRT has been known to cause BPH..

    With the herbs you will pee stronger and shouldn't have that many issues--if you don't really know other than worrying about it. I do as well. I'm 44 and do A TON of preventive maintenance herbs and minerals. A lot of people get away from natural compounds and rely on script chems. Guess it's case by case..

    Cialis will help or prevent BPH...its what it was actually first made for..5-10mg ed will increase flow 10x's..and you get the vasoldiolator effects along with the extra firmness..BPH is either a estrogen or dht issue..with the OP's low e2 it maybe a dht problem..

    Priceless info. FWIW, no Dr has ever explained all that to me before. I had to read it on the internets!

    Important to me is the bit from my post above;
    BPH is an increase in the number of cells, not the same number of cells but swollen.
    It can restrict urine flow... even block it. So it can cause urinary tract infection/inflammation. Your PSA may be higher from increased organ size and from those infections but it doesn't cause butt cancer.

    My bp gets pretty high on my trt dose . Vit c seems to help as well.
