Male hormones play an important role in regulating your health. One specific male hormone, testosterone, helps to regulate sex drive, muscle mass, and the creation of red blood cells and sperm. However, high levels of male hormones can also increase the risk of prostate cancer (PC). High testosterone levels may be linked to higher PSA (prostate-specific antigen) levels.

By reducing the levels of male hormones in the body, PC can be stopped or slowed.
