I received BioTe testosterone only pellets for about 2 years, ending a year ago. I’m 48, premenopausal, neglected mammos for 5 years, and at my preop appt for implants, dr wanted to see a recent mammo. Two mammos and CNB biopsy later, benign finding of ADH. Now waiting on results of exc biopsy done 3 days ago. I asked my Dr if T pellets increased my risk of CA. He didn’t give me a solid answer. Anyone here know of an associated risk? He also did not talk to me or family member after my surgery and expects me to wait for biopsy results at follow up in 3 weeks. This isn’t normal is it

I had biote pellets, just testosterone, four pellets total. I also took prometrium. One year after clearing the T to normal levels I found the lump. Clean mammogram before starting. But oncologist said BC was likely there on a cellular level for four years before dx. So maybe it is a coincidence or maybe the T accelerated proliferation
