Low Testosterone

Low testosterone affects approximately 4 to 5 million American men. However, it is estimated that only 5 percent of affected men currently receive testosterone replacement therapy.

Typical symptoms of low testosterone include:

  • Increased irritability or depression
  • Fatigue
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Reduced muscle mass and strength
  • Low sex drive and erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Decreased bone density or osteoporosis
  • Increased body fat

A simple blood test conducted by a physician can determine if a man has low testosterone.

Prostate Cancer

One in six men in the U.S. will develop prostate cancer in the course of his lifetime. Prostate cancer accounts for over 30,000 deaths a year. Prostate cancer is often curable if detected and treated early, but detection can be challenging, as the disease can have few discernible symptoms in the early stages. At age 50, both the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test and digital rectal examination (DRE)should be conducted annually.
