Testicular cancer from cycling or testosterone use?

Testicular cancer from cycling or testosterone use?

No and No: There is no evidence that cycling is a cause of testicular cancer. As this is a cancer most common in young men it may seem like there is a correlation, but no, cycling does not increase the risk of cancer. Testosterone use will make ones own testicles less active, which may be important, but it does not cause testicular cancer. In certain settings it may be linked to prostate cancer. ...Read more

Can i use aromasin (exemestane) to restore low testosterone and high estrogen? Male 30 years old with steroid abuse history.

Can i use aromasin (exemestane) to restore low testosterone and high estrogen? Male 30 years old with steroid abuse history.

No, don't!: Aromasin (exemestane) blocks conversion of testosterone (T) to estrogen. With low T, there's nothing to convert. Your brain needs to increase FSH and LH to stimulate your testes to produce T. Your brain stops this when you abuse anabolics, and your testes shrink. Aromasin (exemestane) will delay recovery of FSH and LH levels. It can take months or years, but you can fully recover if you wait and stay lean. ...Read more
