How exactly did you get your prostate tested?

Blood work I presume?

Routine PSA test...urine sample, blood.  results should be as close to 0.0 as possible.

I guess anything is possible...but the bottom line is this...if it did accelerate  the prostate cancer, then it probably saved my life, as my fathers fate was to be mine....my battle with this was much easier and detected early on, as opposed to having to deal with it at a older age.

fuck me bob

that must be the stupidest thing you have said so far, and believe me you have said plenty

beyond everything else that is absurd in that statement,  dont you know that the older you are the slower mitosis/cell replication occurs and so the slower your cancer spreads

tell that to my father

there was nothing absurd about my statement, if you know what you're talking about.

It's purely a hypothetical at best, but if indeed my cancer was accelerated by my own doing, then it's quite possible that exposing it now has Led to an early treatment and much better prognosis of recovery...

The longer the cancer would have been present in my prostate, the more likely it would been to have spread outside of the prostate and into the vital organs and bone....THATS the difference

Stick to what you know, kid....

actually, many docs advocate HRT as part of the therapy...I rule nothing out these days.

I've been on HRT for the better part of three years. When my doctor diagnosed my prostate cancer last January, he had me immediately stop the testosterone cypionate injections. Recently, I was advised to stop taking DHEA too.

Incidentally, I had another PSA in February as part of my annual physical exam. In one month after stopping the testosterone cypionate my PSA went from 9.7 to 6.1. I see my urologist in May. I will be scheduling the Da Vinci robotic prostatectomy then. I am anxious to see if my PSA continues to fall between now and then and what he has to say about this.

A couple of years ago, I had a cancerous growth on the bottom of my foot. Most of it was excised at the doctor's office to send to the lab for testing. What remained eventually disappeared and so the planned radiation was deemed unnecessary. That was a really weird situation which my doctors cannot explain to me.

say what?! I didn't read the whole thread, but I'd definitely say you aren't going to find many doctors recommending androgens for anyone with prostate cancer. Androgens fuel prostate cancer cell growth. That's why ANTI-androgens are a treatment for prostate cancer. Most docs would be reluctant to even recommend HRT in someone with low testosterone who has a history of prostate cancer.

Sorry to hear about the prostate CA, and I wish you all the best, but I'd say steroids absolutely accelerate prostate cancer, and you could just as easily argue that your prostate cancer may never have manisted itself clinically had you not used steroids. Many prostate cancers are indolent and there are patients we don't even recommend treatment for. With routine PSA screening and minus the steroids your cancer may have ultimately been discovered decades from now at a similarly low-risk stage, but you would have spared yourself all the potential side effects of treatment. Again, I truly wish you all the best, but I think this is one of those areas where steroids actually are bad.

Perhaps you should read  it again...

I said POST surgery, not prior to or with the diagnoses of cancer...

I mean the way we are living now plus medical science means that in 50 years when the average 40yr old is 90, the quality of life is going to be far greater.Theres even talk that there could be a way to reverse the aging process and live forever (assuming no accidents) within the next 50 years.

Actually, there are other opinions of the effect of TRT and prostate cancer. Right or wrong, this is an interesting article.
