If a young man's low testosterone is a problem for a couple trying to get pregnant , gonadotropin injections may be an option in some cases. These are hormones that signal the body to produce more testosterone. This may increase the sperm count. Hedges also describes implantable testosterone pellets, a relatively new form of treatment in which several pellets are placed under the skin of the buttocks, where they release testosterone over the course of about three to four months. Injections and nasal gels may be other options for some men.
That all sounds good. The digital rectal exam would show some abnormalities that would be of concern. The higher PSA could be an infection - or even prostatitus which I had. That caused my PSA to be elevated. The biopsy is what determined that I had the cancer cells and of what type. For me, the biopsy was not pleasant. Other men in these discussions said theirs was not particularly painful. I think I didn't get a good preparation to numb the area. If you end up having to have a biopsy, be sure to ask what kind of preparation to numb the area would be. I had 12 core samples taken - 2 of which showed the abnormal cells. With your relatively low PSA numbers, if you do have cancer cells, it would be curable. Just keep that in mind. Let us know how you do.
