Even is this study was true, I’m not going to spend my life with low testosterone just to have a 20% less chance of getting prostate cancer. All the other studies show men with lower testosterone are more likely to get prostate cancer.
The study also found those low testosterone men were 65 percent more likely to have an aggressive form of prostate cancer.
I’m calling BS on this study, they clearly do not have the full picture because they can’t explain why 65% of men with low testosterone have a more aggressive form of cancer.
If prostate cancer runs in the family, it’s in the genes. Testosterone doesn’t “cause” prostate cancer. Doctors will cling to these studies of half truths out of fear.
The real cancer here is the idea that TRT causes prostate cancer, I can see a doctor reading this study and coming to the conclusion TRT causes prostate cancer and before you know it he’s telling his patients TRT causes prostate cancer.
Then you have studies coming out showing no increased occurrence of prostate cancer in men who are on TRT or are on TRT and have prostate cancer and show no further progression of the disease and some show prostate cancer is in remission.
You take 10 doctors and have them read this study, they’re all going to come to different conclusions, this is why I prefer evidence based medicine. Humans are too easily mislead once fear sets in, rational behavior goes out the window.
