Are the long term side effects of testosterone therapy known?

Doctors  are admitting that prior to a recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association the long term side effects associated with the use of testosterone replacement therapy and testosterone supplements were not well known. Doctors, including the authors of the study, are now saying that further studies, including randomized clinical trials, are needed to further characterize the risks associated with testosterone therapy to treat low testosterone.

A recent study found that testosterone therapy is associated with a 29% increase in the risk of heart attack, stroke and death.
