I get injections of testosterone cypionate (one milliliter) once every
Probably the symptoms are related to a side effect of the injection.
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
I understand you concern.
I kindly want to ask if the swelling is at the injection site?
If the swelling is at the injection side, it can be a normal reaction of the skin.
I recommend to use anti inflammatory medication to reduce the swelling, such as Acetaminophen 500 mg.
I also recommend to use cool compresses for relief.
The swelling will go away in a few days, so I suggest you not to worry.
You can post point the next injection until the swelling has gone.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Probably water retention due to the testosterone injections.
Hi again dear,
Thank you for the information.
The swelling of the hand is probably relates to the water retention.
It is a common side effect of the testosterone injections.
I recommend postponing the next injection.
Meanwhile, I recommend to do a complete blood count and a cardiovascular check up for further evaluation.
After the examinations you can contact me again for further treatment.
Take care dear,
