This is a good question, Lloyd. Hormone therapy, also called androgen suppression therapy, reduces the levels of male hormones, called androgens, in the body, to stop them from fueling prostate cancer cells. The most well known androgen, of course, is testosterone. I'd like to bring fellow members @waynen@norske46@john57@ken82 and @klaken into this discussion too.
Lloyd, if I'm reading your timeline right, you finished prostate cancer treatments about 7 years ago (prostectomy, radiation, and hormone therapy). Now you're wondering if it's safe for you to take testosterone. Have you discussed this with your oncologist?
