Prostate problems are one of the most common and bothersome medical problems of men as they age. In fact, current trends are that most men will develop BOTH an enlarged prostate AND cancer of the prostate if they live long enough. The older we become, the greater the risk.
Applying research-based strategies to protect the prostate as we age is possible and an ounce of prevention, in this case, is certainly worth a “pound” of cure! Having the prostate partially or completely removed surgically to treat either an enlarged prostate or prostate cancer can result in problems such as complete impotence, weak erections, urinary leakage, and/or difficulty with ejaculations, any of which will affect quality of life. Although many treatment options now exist and complications are less common, prevention is the far better option!
