Testosterone Booster Pills

Posted by lwood58 @lwood58, Jul 21, 2021

Few yrs back I was given a pill to speed up my testosterone to help lose weight. I was told by my medical dr when i went in for annual checkup when she asked of my meds had changed any. Told her I was given testosterone pill and she said do you know that can cause prostate cancer and I said no and threw them away. I am now 69 and over weight by more then back then. I cut back on meals and did some walking and lost almost 30 pounds in about 2 1/2-3 months then came to a screeching halt. I got frustrated and gained back what I lost. My question now is. Is there any testosterone pill or similar that will not cause prostrate cancer and lose weight. When I took it few yrs back, I never changed my eating habits and was still working at my job and was losing weight, so I know those pills worked to speed up my testosterone. I want to lose 120 pounds maybe a few more.

I am and have been on Testosterone Cypionate (injectable) for many years. I have been told repeatedly by Urologist and family doctor that testosterone DOES NOT: REPEATE: DOES NOT cause cancer. It will, however, help cancer to grow should you develop the disease. That is why my PSA is tested on a regular basis.

You very wisely presented a issue that has been on my mind. I thought Testosterone caused cancer! However, maybe best to avoid if I can. I'm desperate because I have a peyronies condition that surpasses all else and I have zero sex. Surgery for pyronies is not fun if I were to choose to go that route. Might injections be an option to cure Pyronies?
