Has anyone else experienced increasing cholesterol after being taken off of testosterone replacement  due to prostate cancer.  My cholesterol went from 160 to 222 in six months, plus adding more weight.---and watching it slip more below the waist.

Ken,

I stopped testosterone therapy when I found out I had cancer and have seen no adverse effect as far as my cholesterol goes.

I was taking Lipitor 10MG before and still take that same amount and the cholesterol is well controlled.
