Avatar n tn [I was not taking charge of my health care] I was weak, stumbling, dizzy spells and didn't care to do anything. Gradually over the last 2 years, my Sex life/drive was non-existent. This fall my new doctor and I decided to cut out the Celexa and Wellbutrin entirely. I started using raw goat's milk in my slurries that I shot in my tube. Now I also puree' cans of Asparghus, Spinach, Turnip Greens, Carrots to add veggies.
Avatar m tn Well hello, I always seem to have pain in both my testes, sometimes quite bad where it pains to sit and walk. I'm single and done with having any more children, I don't date and live alone. Medically would it (for cancer and prostate or other reasons) be a good idea just to have a bi-lateral orchiectomy since I done need they any more, I have no emotional issues with this. Would a Doctor do this for me.
Avatar f tn It is best to seek medical help and get him examined. A rectal examination and tests like flexible sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy may be needed. Do keep us posted. Best wishes!
1435080 tn?1283575661 He is 88 years old and has several other health problems including a pacemaker, arthritis, surgery for colon cancer, numerous skin cancers, etc. What can I expect in the coming months due to this prostrate cancer? The Lupron injections have stopped working and we decided to just let the cancer run its course.
Avatar f tn Studies Show Epidemic That Could Be Stemmed by Cervical Cancer Vaccine Gardasil For years now, doctors have urged young women to be vaccinated against the human papilloma virus (HPV), which is believed to cause cervical cancer.
Avatar m tn One question I have -- is it true that once you start testosterone therapy you have to continue it for life, as the body will stop producing its own? That's what I've heard and is the main reason I haven't tried it, now that it's dropped slightly below normal since I treated.
Avatar m tn He turned it down both times and once I was on top of him and we were grinding and making out and I positioned myself to sit on his face and he started kissing the inside of my thighs and getting closer but then suddenly said that the position was not good for him and he was having trouble breathing (he has been really sick with congestion for the past two months or so) so I said fine and moved back to sit on top of him with my legs spread wide open and I told him we can try it in another posi
3060903 tn?1398568723 tory at-a-glance + By Dr. Mercola Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in men. According to the latest statistics, about 181,000 men get diagnosed with prostate cancer every year in the U.S. However, while common, it has a survival rate of about 86 percent. Of those diagnosed, about 26,000 die from the disease each year.1 Unfortunately, conventional diagnostics and treatment options for prostate cancer leave much to be desired.

Avatar n tn So don't listen to any of the common cliches about men and breast cancer. Being a male who went through a mastectomy and radiation I have done a lot of internet time researching the disease from a male perspective. Here are my conclusions: (and I mean just mine) More men have breast cancer than the statics show for any number of reasons, mainly ignorance.
147426 tn?1317269232 Interestingly, no doctor would put me on testosterone cream or gel. They all said I was too young and would end up with prostate cancer or heart disease in ten years. One doctor put me on Clomid (yes, the female fertility drug!!) to see if it would stimulate my pituitary gland to secrete more FSH and LH ? That was horrible. I even went to jefferson medical university hospital and they would put me on nothing too because of my age.
Avatar n tn You should get this checked out promptly, and maybe posting in the dermatology or men's health forum would help.
Avatar f tn • RMA soothing Ointment by Vibrant Health: for spot treatment of warts and wounds. I also combined this with the contents of the 400mg EGCg Green Tea Extract pills to make a RMA/EGCg ointment that I covered with a band-aid for overnight treatments when a spot was looking bad and needed some healing • Brave Soldier Antiseptic Healing Ointment: for spot treatment and healing help. I used to use Neosporin for the same thing.
1002520 tn?1251582386 In my observation, women can discuss sexuality and sexual health issues much more openly than men (That might be why we are called MEN… not women or gays. DUH!)" So does that mean guys avoid the subject altogether? Not exactly. "Certainly men think about it, but women verbalize it." (But… do women want their men to become women? I’m sure they don’t… feminine problems mandate their acceptance to indignities when it comes to their health… men don’t, and haven’t… DUH!
645800 tn?1466864555 First time anyone knew he was having a problem was finding him in tears due to not being able to go at all, (it is the only time i have ever seen my dad cry) nothing he tried was working and he was in agony. He had bowel cancer, he had all the best dr's and until he was under the knife, they all believed they'd caught it early, not so unfortunately.
Avatar n tn I am sorry for your Dx. I am a female but also now hypo.Since the beginning of my illness everything I read regarding the disease, when I stumbled across the stats of men getting it, I read through it. Dx is rare. specially on sub clinical Hypo or Hyper thyroidism in men. I believe this b/c men are less likely to see a doctor when they have symptoms. and if they do go and get Dx'd - most do not have the patience and stay on top of it.
Avatar n tn If you're taking this pill just to loose weight, and not for a health reason, you should stop taking it, and see that if you keep eating healthy, and walking, you'll still loose! And BTW, taking this pill 10 mins before a meal to help with your appetite is crazy! All diet pills tell you to take it 30min.s before each meal.. b/c it takes 30 min.s to start working...10 min.s? that pill isn't doing anything for you when you're eating!
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
477746 tn?1254788147 Additionally, in experimental studies, women present lower pain threshold and tolerance and evaluate equivalent stimulus as being more painful than men (2). Men's brains respond differently to pain than women. In a study involving 14 men and women, Zubieta et al. (5) found significant differences in how the brains of men and women respond to pain.
Avatar n tn You might also try posting in the men's health or colon cancer forums.
Avatar m tn A Harvard study published in the journal Human Reproduction found a strong association between men's consumption of soy foods and decreased sperm counts. In the study, men who ate a variety of soy-containing foods and then underwent semen analysis had poor sperm quality. Animal studies also found connections between males chowing down on soy and erectile dysfunction.

101028 tn?1419606604 Genital HPV is not necessarily a sign that you or your partner is having sex outside of your relationship. A new resource on your anus comes from Lifelube, a gay men's health website and blog. The resource is a new series called "Andrew's Anus", which is written from the perspective of Andrew's butt. The column covers anal health, HPV and other issues Andrew's anus encounters. I cannot help but think a ‘first booty' perspective is one worth exploring!
Avatar n tn No one on this website will be able to tell you FOR CERTAIN what it is. You can also post in the Testicular Cancer and Men's Health Forums.
