Need to get checked: testicular pain after exercise can be related to infections, hernias, and rarely torsion. Repeat torsion on the same side is possible but not likely. Recommend you see a urologist for an examination

No relationship: The classic belief was that TRT affected Prostate Ca but this was based on 1 patient published in a report in the 1950s. Recent studies have repeatedly shown no association with prostate cancer. Hypogonadal men (lowT) may have a higher risk for prostate cancer. There are a number of studies showing men with untreated prostate cancer given TRT with no change in their cancers.

Xtandi and Zytiga (abiraterone acetate): There are 2 new anti androgens available Xtandi and Zytiga (abiraterone acetate). Xtandi works at 3 places as testosterone enters cancer cells. Zytiga (abiraterone acetate) needs to be taken with Prednisone to prevent side effects. Both work well and usually help for 1-2 years and have been shown to delay the need for chemotherapy.
