Hi XXXXXXX
Welcome to healthcare Magic!
You should get a consult with a physician or a urologist.
In hydrabad, Nizam's Institute is a good option in Govt. hospitals and Global hospital or XXXXXXX Hospital are good options if you want to go to a corporate hospital.
Wish you a great health!

Hi,

I consulted urologist for my previous question on testis enlargement. The doctor confirmed that there was no enlargement in testis. Actually there was no real enlargement in testis, it was skin around it was always tight & there was some prostatic liquid flow during urination. The doctor gave some antibiotics & asked to come to check somedays after.
Later I found, I am taking Finasteride tablet 1mg/per day for treating baldness which may be the cause for above. I stopped intaking finasteride tablets & now i feel normal, I mean testis & skin around it looks normal & no prostate fluid observed during urination.
Do you suggest to take it? Because I was looking for some information about the tablet in google etc... & found that it can cause some side effects.

Hi XXXXXXX
Finasteride inhibits the formation of male hormone testosterone and may cause such feelings in scrotum and nipples.
You should stop it and take local options to treat baldness.
Hope the advise would be helpful for you.

i AM AN 82 YEAR OLD MALE. MY PLATELET COUNT IS 30. MY ENDOCRONOLOGIST ADVISED ME TO TAKE TESTOSTERONE EVERY 2 WEEKS TO FEEL STRONGER & MORE ALIVE. HOWEVER, MY HEMATOLOGIST SAYS IT IS LOWERING THE PLATELET COUNT, AS i HAVE ITP. IS IT IN FACT DANGEROUS TO CONTINUE THE TESTOSTERONE SHOTS? I ALSO HAVE FIBRILATION - UNEVEN HEART BEAT. ALSO, I HAD A STROKE ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO. I WOULD APPRECIATE AN OPINION.

I was recently told I have empty sella found on a MRI. Also found low testosterone. I feel very fatiuged and can't handle stress very well. This has been going on for 3 to 5 years. Could I have a pituitary problem affecting other hormones such as cortisol. Thanks Jim C.
