Possible HGH Risk?
Jun 6, 2001

Do you have any info on the possible side effects of using Serostim? I know it make things grow and my prostate is enlarged. I have heard it may cause prostate cancer. Have you heard this? I don't use it that often. Thank you.

Response from Dr. Boyle

No, I'm not familiar with Serostim causing any of the problems you mention and they are not listed as adverse events in the package insert. You should discuss this with your doctor and should be monitored carefully, regardless.
