Completed hormone deprevation therapy after radical prostectomy. Taking HGH to increase testosterone levels. Will it increase chances of cancer relapse?
I am a post radical prostectomy patient and have completed 5 years of hormone deprevation therapy and have been cancer free for 5 years now. I am always tired and run-down from low testosterone , am considering taking HGH or peptides to increase my testosterone levels, will that increase my chances of cancer returning????
Hi, yes definitely. Increasing testosterone levels will stimulate possible microscopic disease and will increase the chances of relapse. Rather than that, healthy diet and regular exercise should help you. Take care.
