Anabolic steroids, technically known as anabolic-androgen steroids (AAS) or colloquially simply as steroids, are drugs that mimic the effects of testosterone and dihydrotestosterone in the body. They increase protein synthesis within cells, which results in the buildup of cellular tissue (anabolism), especially in muscles. Anabolic steroids also have androgenic and virilizing properties, including the development and maintenance of masculine characteristics such as the growth of the vocal cords, testicles, and body hair (secondary sexual characteristics). The word anabolic comes from the Greek anabole, that which is thrown up, mound, and the word androgenic from the Greek andros, of a man + - -genes, born.
