Turnabol, although a mild anabolic steroid can cause benigh prostate hypertrophy (BPH) in some men. BPH in turn can cause elevated pSA levels. Whether it has done this for you cannot be determined until you actually have the PSA test. There is no way to predict who it will affect and who it won't other than trial.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
