Background: Prostate is a compound tubuloalveolar exocrine gland of the male reproductive system in most mammals. It considers differ among species anatomically chemically and physiologically. Prostate cancer also known as carcinoma of the prostate, is the development of cancer in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system .Most prostate cancers are slow growing; however, some grow relatively quickly. Testosterone in the presence of a slow-growing prostate cancer is assumed to… Expand


Prostate cancer in men using testosterone supplementation.
Physicians prescribing testosterone supplementation and patients receiving it should be cognizant of this risk, and serum PSA testing and digital rectal examination should be performed frequently during treatment. Expand
Testosterone therapy and prostate carcinoma
The available data suggest that TRT can be cautiously considered in selected hypogonadal men previously treated for curative intent of low-risk PCa and without evidence of active disease. Expand
Longitudinal evaluation of serum androgen levels in men with and without prostate cancer
There are no measurable differences in serum testosterone levels among men who are destined to develop prostate cancer and those without the disease, according to the Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging. Expand
Population differences in the testosterone levels of young men are associated with prostate cancer disparities in older men.
An exhaustive literature search was completed to obtain testosterone values reported for study samples of younger men, along with prostate cancer incidences for the larger populations from which the study populations were sampled, and a novel analytical method was developed to standardize, organize, and examine 12 studies reporting testosterone levels.

Human prostate cancer risk factors
The authors conclude that most of the data regarding risk relies, of necessity, on epidemiologic studies, but animal and cell culture models offer promise in confirming some important findings. Expand
Assessment of Proliferation Activity by Using Nucleolar Organiser Regions Count among Sudanese Patients with Prostate Cancer and Benign Prostate Hyperplasia
AgNOR has a value in distinguishing between BPH and adenocarcinoma of the prostate, and analysis of silver staining-positive material in intact interphase cells may help distinguish between benign and malignant prostatic tumours. Expand
