welcome to healthcaremagic
Actually Serum testosterone levels may vary according to sampling, age, weight, alcohol use, cigarette smoking, and use of prescription drugs somewhat reduced the differences.
There is nothing to worry as per your result

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
Your serum testosterone levels are within the normal range. Being on slightly lower side does not reflect any abnormality. The levels of testosterone vary in our body with emotions, time of the day, other hormonal status, etc.
