As men get older, their testosterone level naturally starts to decline and leads to a hormonal imbalance that negatively affects their health, fitness, and vitality. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a treatment that replenishes testosterone back to the levels of their youth. This restores their ideal hormonal balance, which reverses any uncomfortable symptoms and improves their quality of life.
Yet until recently, some medical researchers believed that hormone replacement therapy led to an increased risk of prostate cancer. This caused millions of aging men to avoid HRT and suffer with the symptoms of testosterone deficiency.
Fortunately, this belief has been proven incorrect by numerous follow-up studies, which revealed that higher levels of testosterone did not increase the risk of prostate cancer. These findings remained constant even among men with an elevated risk or genetic predisposition for the disease, as well as over a decade of follow-up analysis. This completely contradicted conventional wisdom and forced the medical community to shift its stance.
As a result of this strong evidence, the current medical consensus is that hormone replacement therapy is extremely safe for the prostate and does not increase the risk of prostate cancer.
In a surprising turnabout, there is now a growing concern that low testosterone levels can lead to prostate cancer. Various studies around the world have found that low testosterone was related to more aggressive tumors, as well as that the risk of developing prostate cancer was substantially lower among men who underwent HRT than those who did not.
Today, the medical perspective is that:
- High levels of testosterone do not increase the risk of prostate cancer
- HRT does not increase the risk of prostate cancer, even among men with a predisposition for the disease
- Low levels of testosterone may actually increase the risk of developing prostate cancer
In light of this extensive research disproving any association between HRT and prostate cancer, men no longer have to settle for the discomfort of aging and low testosterone in order to protect their prostate health. Men can feel confident pursuing hormone replacement therapy to regain their vitality and virility. In fact, increasing their testosterone level through HRT may actually decrease their risk of developing the disease, which is just another of the many benefits of hormone replacement therapy.
