    Steroids and cancer development?

    Hi everyone I just had a general question to ask?
    My friend who has been pretty cleen all his life (no big drugs and not too much alcohol) did one m1t cycle followed by a sustanon 250 cycle last summer all with post cycle and everything. He then did a cut cycle starting in december and last week was diagnosed with advanced leukemia!!
    I was wondering if steroids could of helped accelerate the development of cancer or if it was just his time.
    Thanx

    I've often wondered if steroids could accelerate cancerous growths also.
    It would be very interesting to see what those that have the knowledge have to say....

    Steroids will advance the growth of all soft tissue, including cancer and tumors. I think this is where everyone gets the idea that steroids give you cancer. You might have a real small amount of cancer that will you would never notice, then you take aas/hgh/igf etc and it grows along with everything else.

    There has never been a single conclusive study that steroids cause, or accelerate, cancer growth.

    HGH on the other hand, has.

    That is a good point. Both progesterone and estrogen has been linked to various cancers in women. It makes sense that since your estrogen levels will be elevated during a cycle of anobolics, there might be an increased chance of developing cancer in males.

    I have no evidence to back this up, I am simply entertaining the possibility.

    Sex hormones can have an influence on certain types of cancer. It won't give you cancer though. Your diet has a major influence, as well.

    I've seen numerous scientific studies that say otherwise.

    But, I guess they're just telling me what I want to hear, too, right?

    You do realize they prescribe steroids such as prednisone to cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, right?

    prednisone is not an anabolic steriod, it is an systemic immune-suppresive corticosteriod.

    it is also commonly used for extreme cases of psoriasis type skin conditions.

    Interestingly, corticosteroids applied topically such as clobetasol can actually exaccerbate skin conditions such as fungal infections.

    I think your argument is weak.

    Just as the poster I quoted, I did not distinguish between "steroids." The point of my post was to show that steroids are a huge class of drugs with many different kinds that have vastly different actions. Generalizing all "steroids" is foolish.

    It isn't an argument, so I'm not sure what's weak about it. It's a statement about medical treatments. I think your reading comprehension is weak.
