  1. I like the part about men with family histories of prostrate cancer not taking the medication. But almost everyone who lives long enough will have prostrate cancer.

    But, in situations were someone may not be able to continue an active lifestyle and thus will start a downward spiral, I think such treatments — including steroids — should be considered. As for reasons of vanity, that’s something less supportable.

    1. I’d agree it’s less supportable if insurance was going to cover it, but if it’s costs are not covered under insurance programs, I’m not sure it’s anyone’s business, including the governments, as long as their is full disclosure made to the patient, about any risks, and the patients are carefully screened.
