Howdy all,

It has been several years since I’ve been active on the forum. A huge thank you to BigA for getting my account back up.


I used to be pretty heavily into bodybuilding cycles of 1-3g per week + peptides etc.


In 2013 I received a liver cancer diagnosis
In 2015 a leukemia diagnosis


I have been in full remission since 2017. Completely healthy at the moment. I have been hesitant to hop onto TRT due to the complexities of Anabolics and cancer cell proliferation.


I recently did a hormone test and on the 200-900 scale came back at a 248. I was prescribed 50mg clomiphene + 300IU HCG (30 units). My level bounced up to 448.

The doc bumped me up to 400IU and maintaining the clomid.


They would like to put me on prescription test however I deploy frequently and bringing injectibles isn’t possible. I am interested in conceiving in around 3 years (just got married).

There is also a conversation about prescription GH at 1-2 units daily. I currently take metformin to lower my IGF due to the correlation between cancer and IGF.

Thoughts? Thank you!

Why are they even talking about therapeutic GH use in someone with a history of cancer?

Was your HP carcinoma ever linked to anabolic use by the docs? I’d refer to your docs on this, I know some are comfortable with TRT, but I’d have a good discussion with your oncologist on this and get his opinion on it.

your test levels are super low so you must be feeling like crap

dive into pubmed and see lots of research on trt and cancer.

damn man have not seen you in a while, sounds like you been having a hell of a fight, are you military or security? anyway bro I would for sure consult your oncologist about it even 2nd opinion if you want that, personally I would stay away from GH but hey thats me, good luck to ya and if you get on trt make it trt, lol, dont get carried away with it

In regards to TRT and HGH after cancer, as long as you are keeping levels within the physiological range, there can only be health benefits.

Living with a Total test in the 200s, quality of life AND health will take a hit. Low testosterone is linked to heart disease, depression, bone/muscle loss, and more health issues. The GH is more controversial, but if you are only taking 1-2 IU to bump your IGF into the 200s (mid 20's level), there should be no problem.


HGH is not linked to causing cancer, but to possibly accelerating the growth of an already existing malignancy.


My 2 cents, TRT+GH at physiological replacement levels is a good idea. Just get checked for malignancies every 6-12 months and enjoy your life.



p.s.

Low igf levels have actually been linked to malignancies.

Many doctors and oncologist will say no to TRT just to cover their asses. Their priority is their own safety first and foremost, not a patient's quality of life.

That's why they see you with very low testosterone and most don't care. As long as you aren't dying, they could care less if you feel like garbage.

P.S

I am a clinician myself. Some doctors do care but many will shy away from saying okay to HRT even though there is no risk.

sad but true brother

docs firstly dont understand trt and hormone optimalisation and therefore feeling like shit is not something they care about. can you work, pay taxes and stfu? if yes then his job is done.

docs jobs isnt to make us feel king kong in life and kick ass, because he himself isnt on that same level so dont expect somebody to help you beyond what they are doing for themselves. most docs are very unhealthy and stressed out. this is a well known research fact

You’d probably know more than most in that case.

There is real life cases of people having HC adenomas turn into carcinomas when they continued with androgen use, even in therapeutic doses; we’ve had that be mentioned on here before. Someone can correct me on this, but androgen signaling in receptors plays a role in the initiation of HC carcinoma.

Anything that turns on growth factors would scare me personally with a history of cancer; now testosterone in true trt doses wouldn’t be illogical with hypogonadism, but I don’t know where it would fall with this stuff.

This is my (quite literally) useless opinion on this stuff; I’d go by your best judgment. All I’ll say is; let the scientist in you make the decision, not the bodybuilder.

i did not say much about because like I said he should follow docs advice and not somebody on the internet, I would think true TRT be ok but again he should follow oncologist about that, he is taking metformin for a reason and im sure it has been prescribed to him so no way I would take gh not even at 1 or 2iu

In 2014 I had testicular cancer (#singlejingle) - working with Dr Saya for my TRT...I am 29, when tested last year my levels were ~300 and estradial 30, LH 9.9(high)..so we jumped straight to TRT - no HCG.

We test the same tumor markers (AFP & hCG) my oncologist test for(optional, but I am more comfortable with more frequent test), when we do bloods.

My oncologist(s) are both comfortable with it as long as I keep everything monitored - both are fully aware of the range of TRT that can be prescribed...1 of them knew of Dr. Saya and was glad I went with him vs another well know clinic in the Tampa area.
