As men get older, many suffer from benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH, a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. This condition results in multiple symptoms. In particular, can BPH affect your sex life?

They say, “With age comes wisdom.” If that is truly the case, with prostate cancer, men should understand when and why a man should be screened. If you’re not sure about the importance of screening, keep reading.
Steven N. Gange, MD, FACS, Director of Research and Education at Granger Medical Clinic/Summit Urology Group, conducted a propensity score-matched study comparing Focal Therapy vs. Radical Prostatectomy. Focal therapy is a non-invasive approach to removing small tumors within the prostate. This technique spares most of the normal tissue while leaving the remaining gland intact. Radical Prostatectomy is the classic way of removing the prostate which includes removing the prostate gland and the surrounding tissue. Until now, a propensity score-matched study comparing focal therapy (FT) for localized prostate cancer to radical prostatectomy (RP) has never been reported.
Staging prostate cancer after its diagnosis helps to describe the extent of the disease and is utilized to guide the treatment plan and forecast the patient’s prognosis. Understanding the four stages of prostate cancer is a valuable tool for both the physician and the patient.
It can be the “elephant in the room” if you are having trouble with erectile dysfunction, even in your doctor’s office. It is a hard subject (pun intended) to bring up and discuss, but it’s more than just sex. Here’s why you should seek treatment for erectile dysfunction.
When you’re a young man there are certain things you don’t bother to think about like losing your hair, slowing down, needing a cane to walk, or getting prostate cancer. Young guys consider these all “old man” issues. Not so fast though. Maybe the others will take decades before you have to face them, but prostate cancer in young men is increasing. Here’s what you should know.
Is an enlarged prostate a serious medical condition? If you are male, 60% of you will have symptoms of an enlarged prostate over the age of 60. 90% will have symptoms by age 85. This adds up to fourteen million Americans with an enlarged prostate, and although this seems fairly common, don’t be fooled into thinking it cannot ever become serious. It can be.
Is erectile dysfunction a warning sign of prostate cancer? It is unfortunate that although prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer in men, there are few if any early symptoms. Regular screenings by your doctor are the best way to head off the development of prostate cancer, but there are a few warning signs every man should understand and be aware of.
Although most cancers are diagnosed via a biopsy, a prostate cancer diagnosis relies on some screening tests early in the process before a final diagnosis is made. So exactly what are the steps and how is prostate cancer diagnosed?
