How to use "Castrate" in context?

Castration, simply put, is the removal of the testicles or genitals. For centuries, castration was used to treat a variety of mental and physical disorders and was considered quite effective. However, in the last several decades, castration has lost its popularity as a treatment option for various reasons.

Theoretically, castration can reduce the risk of prostate cancer and other disorders by reducing the amount of testosterone in the body. However, castration is no longer commonly used as a treatment for prostate cancer because current therapies offer a better prognosis than traditional castration.
