Testosterone and Breast Cancer Prevention – 2015

Dr. John Carrozzella LL Breast Cancer, LL Testosterone Women

Recent clinical data supports a role for Testosterone in Breast Cancer prevention. Women treated with pharmacological doses of Testosterone delivered by subcutaneous implants (pellets), had a reduced incidence of Breast Cancer. In addition, Testosterone effectively treated symptoms of hormone deficiency in Breast Cancer survivors and was not associated with recurrent disease.  Most notably, Testosterone implants placed in breast tissue surrounding malignant tumors significantly reduced Breast Cancer tumor size, further supporting T direct antiproliferative, protective and therapeutic effect.
