Testicle Removal to Assist Prostate Cancer
I read the article about removing both testicles for testosterone reduction. Q: Could one testicle be removed, reducing testosterone production. Hormone therapy, with EBRT and "seed" implants? Thanks.
Removing one testicle will not reduce the testosterone. The remaining testicle will still produce normal levels of testosterone.
