Doc Scally please. I know you published some good studies in my recent thread regarding similar matters. But I am a somewhat of a quandry. It would seem that in normal males with no history of hormone supplementation of any type, that if they turn up a lump or leaker, they are pretty much in for trouble. And very possibly cancer. (1) I think it is established that breast cancer can only form in "breast tissue". Obviously all the guys with lumps, discharge, or breast cancer, developed their breast tissue due to hormonal imbalances (at a minimum). Again, Aren't we doing the same?? After 4 years of reading here, it just seems common place to have a lump. I have seen so many posters who eventually turn up with a "bb sized lump", or "fluid comming out". IT JUST SEEMS "NORMAL" for this game. And thus, DISCOUNTED GREATLY. So whats the deal? (2) Is gyno the MOST UNDERRATED SIDE EFFECT OF AAS? You always hear of the "risk of Gyno". THAT IS ALL. If breast cancer is so common in normal men (that dont supp test) once a lump is found. Then why the hell isn't that the main sounding board for all the anti-steroid, and medical awareness groups? (3) Is a "bb sized" lump a real concern from a medical standpoint? What would you do if a patient came in with a lump and possible small abount of clear, stick, perhaps even "whitish" fluid that could be expressed ( if really squeezing)? Would that protocol change for a TRT or AAS user, and why? (4) Is there really a difference? Would studies suggest that these regular folks with no AAS or TRT history just have an inclination to develop breast cancer? Does our removal of the hormones, as supplementers, place us back in a normal risk profile, and can this be used to satisfy a negative situation? It would seem that at a min. We have now created breast tissue, which is at risk for breast cancer. A cancer we would have otherwise never have worried about. Which may infact, be a significant difference is what may, or may not, have developed down the road. Could you please present a clinical response as a general scenario as fellow MDs would approach the situation both ways, by training. You may apply personal professional standards as well if you want. It seems like more cause for alarm than ANYONE has EVER published.
