No link between prostate cancer and testosterone levels

2015 Research

As we have told you for a dozen years, oncologists who blame your prostate cancer on high testosterone are merely quoting an old wives’ tale.

Back in 2004 we covered research that oestrogen was the culprit and turned nice safe testosterone into DHT, and this did the damage. One study we covered showed that chemicals, which were oestrogen mimics, had the same effect.

The new study was presented by Peter Boyle, MD, of the International Prevention Research Institute in Ecully France at a press conference during the American Urological Association Annual get together. 

His conclusions, drawn from two meta-studies were that endogenous serum testosterone levels are not associated with prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels or the risk of developing prostate cancer, nor is testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) for symptomatic hypogonadism.

"Many urologists are concerned that TRT may accelerate prostate growth not only in benign disease but also in cancer," according to Boyle. "In both cases this seems untrue".
