    Men given 12 or more injections of testosterone per year were 33% LESS likely to get prostate cancer during a 3-year follow-up than men not on testosterone replacement according to data from 189,491 men aged 40-60 years-old.

    Men using testosterone gel 330 days or more per year were 42% LESS likely to get prostate cancer than men not on testosterone replacement.

    This is the exact opposite of what was believed for many years.
