Estrogen may be responsible for many prostate cancer cases. Food-sourced phytoestrogens could be beneficial for those with early-stage cancer. However, they may increase your risks if you have stage 3 to 4 cancer.
Type 2 estrogen increases your risk of BPH. Phytoestrogens can help decrease type 2 estrogen. Aromatase inhibitors and 5-alpha reductase inhibitors may also lower your risk of BPH.
Causes of an enlarged prostate:
1. Decreased testosterone and increased estrogen
As you age, your testosterone decreases and your estrogen increases. Type 2 estrogen is the primary cause of an enlarged prostate.
Aside from causing hair loss, DHT can also increase your risk of an enlarged prostate. High levels of 5-alpha reductase can increase DHT.
