Frequent sex decreases the risk of prostate cancer by as much as 33%. Prostate cancer in most cases is genetic, and there is a high prevalence of prostate cancer in men with low testosterone levels. The many anti-aging benefits of having an active sex-life is explained in Younger (SEXIER) YOU by Eric Braverman, MD.
The prostate is a walnut-size gland that lies between the bladder and the penis, and it is vitally important to every man’s health and sexual performance. The prostate carries urine from the bladder and adds fluid to sperm just before ejaculation. Painful urination post orgasm is a sign of a prostrate problem, or what is often described as LUTS; lower urinary tract symptoms. Sex is a stress test on your prostate and urethra. If your prostate isn’t healthy, you’re going to find that you are urinating very often, and you may get sick.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) can begin as early as age 30, although most men will not experience symptoms until they reach their fifties. You can read more about how to detect the first signs in Eric Braverman, MD’s NEW book Younger (SEXIER) You available by calling 1-888-846-7284.
Prostatitis is a bacterial infection of the prostate that can occur at any age and is quickly remedied by antibiotics. Prostatic hypertrophy, or enlargement of the prostate, is another common prostate problem unrelated to prostate cancer. It is estimated that 70% of men over age 50 have some prostate enlargement.
Prostate cancer is second only to lung cancer as the most common form of cancer among American men. Symptoms of this slow-moving disease include painful urination, bone-pain, and nodules on the prostate that may be felt during a digital rectal exam.
If prostate problems persist, surgery may be required. A common sexual side effect is orgasm without ejaculation. The key, of course, is to help prevent prostate problems from developing by catching these diseases as early as possible. See your doctor if you experience any of the following symptoms:
After age 50, your prostate should be monitored during your annual doctor’s visit. Men should receive yearly ultrasounds on the prostate, just as women have annual mammograms. Other tests for prostate health include:
