Perhaps: A large varicoceole can effect sperm production and tesosterone levels. You should be evaluated by a urologist.

No: No, gh does not increase testosterone production but if weight loss does occur from gh therapy (gh induces lipolysis), your sex hormone binding globulin will rise which in turn will raise your total testosterone level.

Hernia?: This could be a number of things, including a hernia, a pinched nerve in the back, or a problem in the testicle itself. A family doctor or a general surgeon would be the person to see and be examined by to make sure.

See MD: It could be an infection/inflamation like epididymitis, orchitis or testicular tosion, hernia, etc. You should see your md and have proper evaluation that will include an ultrasound to your testicle. Most likely, this has nothing to do with your prostate cancer history in your father.

Complicated answer: Tricky question requires a complicated answer. You mentioned being a brittle diabetic but didn't mention how well controlled you are. Presumably, you're t1dm requiring Insulin (and not taking any other dm meds) which then suggests obesity wasn't the main cause. 1st thought is to get dm under control. Next is that hgh & t are only useful if you're deficient. Your doc can run tests to support meds.
