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.
