My friend's dad was telling him that steroids accelerate the whole cancer process if you are susceptible. He was saying the family has this cancerous gene, and if his son were to ever take steroids, he could basically consider himself a goner. In one sense I could see how this could be true, like if youre susceptible to MPB and you take a certain steroid that has a high conversion to DHT, it just accelerates the process
BUT I vaguely remember reading something on here that contradicts this and that steroids are being used to treat cancer patients??? Also I believe there is someone on IM that has personally experienced this.
Any opinions on this?
