Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.
I understand your concern.
Testosterone plays a role in sperm production, fuels libido, and contributes to normal erections.
Signs and symptoms of low testosterone are lower sex drive and sense of vitality, erectile dysfunction, decreased energy, reduced muscle mass and bone density, and anemia.
Testosterone supplements therapy are not advised in patients with prostate cancer as it is thought that testosterone fuels prostate cancer cells and it worsen prostate cancer.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy is not recommended for men who have
- prostate or breast cancer
- a nodule on the prostate that can be felt during a DRE
- a PSA greater than 3 ng/ml without further evaluation
It is possible for men with BPH to go on to develop prostate cancer as well.
Since you have a history of enlarged prostate probably your doctor want to rule out prostate cancer.
Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
