Testosterone Therapy & Prostate Cancer

Testosterone Therapy and Prostate Cancer

For years, people have feared that individuals who undergo testosterone replacement therapy might have a heightened risk of developing prostate cancer. However, a new study recently revealed that, not only is there no such connection, but that individuals who undergo testosterone therapy actually have a decreased risk of mortality rates from prostate cancer.

Where Did this Myth Originate?

This mistaken belief originated as a result of a study conducted in the 1940s by a Chicago-based urologist named Charles Huggins. While Huggins eventually went on to become a Nobel Prize winner for his research regarding the prostate, several of his findings have turned out to be false over the years. The supposed link between prostate cancer and testosterone replacement therapy, for example, was only ever tenuous at best. However, it remained unquestioned until very recently.

New Research into Testosterone Replacement Therapy

When researchers in Los Angeles at the David Geffen School of Medicine began to look into the statistics regarding this link, the truth came out. These researchers studied more than 100,000 cases of men with prostate cancer. Their studies revealed that among the men who had undergone testosterone replacement therapy once they’d received their diagnosis, there was a substantially lower mortality rate than that of the men who didn’t receive this therapy.
