Who Should Not Use HRT? 

For those who have been affected by early prostate cancer it is recommended that you do not participate in hormone replacement therapy due to the stimulation of growth. The increase in testosterone could in turn stimulate the growth of cancer cells within the prostate.

All men considering the use of hormone replacement therapy should undergo a prostate screening before participating in the therapy process. Infinity Medical Institute wants to ensure the therapy process is safe for you.

Breast cancer, even though a rare health ailment in men, should also not take testosterone replacement therapy.

If you think you’re struggling with low testosterone levels and are considering using hormone replacement therapy, book a consultation with our medical professionals at Infinity Medical Institute today.
