Avatar f tn The gynecomastia leads to body disturbances for males especially at a young age. This can be causing a big part of the depression. Also talk to the health care provider about weight and see if this could have something to do about the low testosterone levels.
Avatar f tn Breast cancer in males is uncommon, especially in the young, but it can occur. A lump under the nipple of a young boy is most likely gynecomastia, which is common in boys around the age of puberty and is usually temporary.
Avatar m tn For some males, especially young males it takes very little stimulation for an erection to occur. This does not mean you are gay or that you are attracted to other males. It most likely is the stimulation of the showers. I know this must be embarrassing for you but rest assured there is nothing wrong, this can be quite normal. In time this will not be an issue as you mature and become less sensitive. Good luck to you. I promise this will get better.
Avatar n tn The normal range of testosterone in males is 300 -1,000 ng/dL and in females it is 15 - 70 ng/dL.The normal ranges vary among laboratories. Few labs may use different measurements or test different specimens. It is best to talk to your doctor about the interpretation of test results. Write to me again with more queries. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar m tn Hi there, The common causes of hot flashes in males are andropause, thyroid disorders and aging hormones. As a man ages his body produces less testosterone and androgen which may cause hot flashes. Other causes of hot flashes are infections like HIV and tuberculosis. Use of medications like Nifedipine and Calcitonin and certain antibiotics are few other causes of hot flashes. Sometimes food containing monosodium glutamate can cause hot flashes.
17698157 tn?1459229144 my age is 30 I got married in 2011 I have no sperm count means zero and very low testosterone level, some Dr said your FSH and Lh levels are very high as normal ranges in males..
Avatar m tn Hi, Most males are concerened about the size of their penis. They all come in different shapes and sizes. At 3.75 erect you might be smaller than some but you certianly are not the smallest. I myself am a 45 y/o male who has about a 3.5" flacid and about 5.5" erect. Now that I have become older it seems that my penis has shrunk a bit. I believe that it is due to having gained some weight. You have not stated anything about your body build, whether you're slim or not.
Avatar n tn The normal testosterone levels in males vary between 260 -1080 ng/dl/ 8.8 - 36.7 nmol/l. Though these may slightly lower with age, the average values remain more or less the same. Hope this information is helpful. Take care!
Avatar f tn I suggest u get ur testosterone checked. The #1 symptom is hair loss in women and hair growth in other unexpected places. I have really high testosterone I'm trying to lower, it has been making me lose a lot of hair and I'm only 29. I have high testosterone from PCOS. MAKE SURE UR DOCS LOOK INTO THAT. I started intense cardio, eating foods with little carbs and low sugar, and drinking spearmint tea. Also thinking about colon hydrotherapy.
568812 tn?1379165794 In males, as you know UTI’s are quite rare but unfortunately once the males get the UTI’s, they become difficult to treat. Important things to be ruled out for recurrent UTI’s in a male are :- 1. Diabetes 2. Any urinary obstruction commonly due to stones/strictures 3. Any congenital abnormality in the urinary tract 4. Chronic prostatitis He should definitely see a urologist and will need further tests to rule out these possibilities. For e.g. an USG of the kidneys,ureters and bladder, IVU etc.
Avatar m tn I personally think the whole testosterone treatment is a scam. Nobody tested me for free and albumin bound testosterone, the biologically active forms. Total testosterone is useless. This is like measuring total cholesterol without the HDL and LDL fractions. The primary practice docs are totally clueless. I would recommend talking to a good endocrinologist only.
Avatar m tn For example genes that encode for proinflammatory T cell and Ig superfamily proteins is higher in males than females. Males have higher expression of heat protein shock genes, suggesting that cellular stress us elevated in males. Investigation of the unique cellular pathways and candidate genes that cause differential in bacterial infections between males and females continues, and may one day lead to a new class of antibiotics.
Avatar m tn m going ahead and getting tested in a couple weeks. All this crap I see on the internet give a link to low testosterone which I do have. I am getting shots for treatment. I guess I wanna know if it can still be common for a guy under forty to have low testosterone. My doctor tells me the two are not linked but the Internet tells me they are. I admit I was with a few women that I failed to use protection and it was vaginal with no oral or anal.
Avatar f tn Erectile dysfunction is not as uncommon as people think in young men with 26 % of men under the age of 4o reporting it. We encourage you to speak to your doctor about it. While masturbation can possibly impact this, there are other underlying causes you would need to rule out. So, being able to talk to your doctor is important. With the high number of males who have the issue, they will not be terribly surprised and will hopefully have suggestions for you.
Avatar m tn Sorry for the delay responding to your comment. Although low testosterone is not as common in younger males, it does happen. If you get a doctor that will not run a blood test, I am not sure what recourse you have in the UK. If all else fails, you can try buying DHEA over the counter at a vitamin or health food store (time released if possible). DHEA is a precursor to testosterone and can help raise your levels.
Avatar n tn It is the effect of hormones on the hair follicle that produces male pattern baldness. Testosterone, a hormone that is present in high levels in males after puberty, is converted to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) by an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase. DHT has an adverse affect on the hair follicles. Acting on a hormone receptor on the hair follicle it slows down hair production and produces weak, shorter hair, sometimes it stops hair growth from the follicle completely.
Avatar f tn I have never actually heard them referred to as type I, II, and III, but you are right that the kind of early repolarization that is common in young males and carries a benign prognosis is most often confined to the lateral precordial leads (V5 and V6). I don't know for certain why it most often show up there, but it just does.
Avatar m tn Could you list your lab ranges for testosterone and prolactin. In general, blood prolactin above 200 ng/ml almost always is diagnostic of a true prolactinoma. High prolacin lowers testosterone. And if your testosterone is also measured in ng/dL that is so low it's ridiculous! Research shows over 95% of euthyroid patients with no thyroid symptoms has a TSH under 2.5mU/L. TSH is of no value with conditions that do not affect the thyroid such as central hypothyroidism and cellular resistance.
Avatar m tn Hi, Your story is atypical of obese boys going through pubertal development, initial testosterone gets converted to estrogen in the fat tissues and as the testosterone level picks up normal manly features develop. So, as such I do not think you have any reason to worry. Try to reduce your fat, take balanced food and do moderate exercise and over a few years, the gynecomastia should get subsided of its own.
Avatar m tn t know if their numbers for the normal healthy ranges are for males for any time in life, or what. Does anyone know ranges that are age-specific?
Avatar n tn Has anyone else experienced a low testosterone level after this tumor removal and if so what course of action did you have to take? I am 46 now and I understand testosterone levels do begin to drop a bi tin males once reaching the age of 40.
