Bodybuilders, both men and women, take anabolic steroids to increase and define their muscle mass. This is not a medically-approved use for anabolic steroids; they are typically used for individuals with growth problems, including dwarfism. For a bodybuilder to use anabolic steroids for muscle mass enhancement is not only illegal but extremely dangerous. Used on a chronic basis, these drugs are testosterone-based, a male development and behavioral hormone. Anabolic steroids "masculinize" changes in the body. Among men, they cause shrinkage of the testicles, infertility, increased facial hair, severe acne, balding on top of the head, and the development of breasts. They also create aggressive behavior. Women who take anabolic steroids develop a lower voice, increased facial hair, increased aggressiveness, increased appetite, lack of menstruation and infertility, increased body hair, and decreased breast size. Both men and women can develop fatal liver tumors. Athletes and police officers are routinely tested for use of anabolic steroids. Canadian gold-medal winner in the Olympic games, Ben Johnson, had the medal taken away from him and is now banned from competing in track and field events for life.
