This showed up on Medscape today:  https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa2308836?query=featured_home    This isn't the whole of the study document. This may get more buzz.   I would like to know if anyone who supplements with testosterone in their practices have noticed any such increase in fractures.  In reading the synopsis, the actual difference in numbers of men is small but they say statistically significant. If the press picks this up and uses relative risk percentages, it could look a lot worse than it actually is.
