I have recently read here that someones testosterone levels are being monitored in relation to PCa. Is there anything beyond the hormone itself that is important? Is there a base line that mens testosterone should not exceed? I also read a study that was based on the importance of keeping the testosterone and estrogen balanced in aging men? The study was published in the NE Journal of Medicine (I think) but it was not related to PCa. It looks like balancing the two hormones is important for good health in aging men.
