Testosterone and Prostate Cancer: The Myths RevealedI clenbuterol dzialanie sharing this written by Paul Johnson This is a very common question among bodybuilders thinking of doing steroids. Is it really fact or is it just based on far reaching assumptions? The prostate first grows during puberty. Then around 25, the prostate starts to grow again in a 2nd phase. The 2nd phase eventually may lead to prostate enlargement years down the road. Steroids including normal testosterone in the body stimulate the androgen receptors in the prostate. Once excessive system levels of androgenic steroids drops, than do anabolic steroids cause prostate cancer prostate will start to shrink back again.

Page 1 of 3 1 2 3 Last Jump to page: Results 1 to 10 of BPH is enlargement of the prostate, that usually effects only older men. But, if you use steroids for years, then BPH will probably affect you. Getting BPH from steroids, would depend on how susceptible you are and how long you have used Steroids.
Many users of steroids notice a enlarging of their prostate after a while on cycle, making it slighlty more difficult to urinate. There is controversy over what really causes BPH naturally in men, but DHT is thought to be just one possible component. DHT is converted from testosterone in the body and is 3.
DHT is what gives men their masculinizing sex effects on the body. All androgenic steroids stimulate the same receptors on the prostate to various degrees called the androgenic to anabolic ratio in the same way DHT does. Another mechanism by which BPH might be caused from steroid use, is due to low testosterone levels post cycle.
Low testosterone levels and high estrogen, like as seen with post cycle and hypo gonadal men, can actually cause BPH. Many men have had a reduction in BPH when they were treated clinically with testosterone replacement therapy for low testosterone. The prostate usually shrinks back eventually after a steroid cycle, once your testosteron levels get back to normal, but over time I would think this may lead to a more permanent enlargement effect.
This is why men who went on HRT hormone replacement therapy , would get a PSA test to assess their risk for prostate cancer. This makes logocial sense to me, since younger men would be getting prostate cancer due to the high testosterone levels. I believe the risk of Prostate cancer is mainly caused bytoxins and other genetic factors. Ejaculation helps the flushing of the prostate from cancer from these toxins. Some research studies are also showing increased risk of prostate cancer based on genetics, race, diets, and environmental factors.
I'm a little stuck right now. I'm worried that the Primo might make things worse because its DHT based. Everything I've read is contradictory. The problem is, once I put it in, I can't take it out. Maybe I will start with low doses for weeks to see if it makes the situation worse. Maybe the only way, what do you think?
If you have prostate enlargement, I would avoid DHT based joozes's. For me it's the opposite. I have had some prostate issues in the past years previous to cycling and since i've started cycling it's estrogen that gives me the BPH symptoms, not DHT. There have been 2 most obvious times it's happened. That thing felt like it was the size of a fucking baseball lol.
