i just got my test results back from my latest hospital visit and I was informed my testosterone level is to high. I do not see that discussed much here so I am curious for those with metastic disease what a acceptable level is. I am being told it has to be below 50 and my level is 57.
peace and love

My oncologist thinks below 50 as well, but there are many oncologists that say below 20, Myers included. I have to watch mine as well and we are above 20 but lightly. Your latest PSA is shown, but if you don't mind, can you show the last few PSA's? A trend is a telling story.

Peace to All...

If not already being done, Dihydrotestosterone levels should also be tested.
