UPDATE ON TESTOSTERONE

New England Journal of Medicine

There have been 2 major controversies about testosterone replacement concerning the risks of heart disease and prostate cancer. I have written several blogs recently that looked at heart disease and saw no proof of a connection. Now we have a study of over 1000 men that actually showed a lower incidence of prostate cancer than those who were not taking testosterone. The researchers found an incidence of 30-50 cancers/ 10,000 men. The overall incidence of prostate cancer in the general population was 100/10,000 men.

This study only lasted 5 years. This is also not an excuse not to be screened for prostate cancer if you are taking testosterone.
