Avatar f tn Is he having trouble urinating because of his enlarged prostate or because of the meds? I would give his Dr a call today and ask what can be done. If he's not putting out enough urine they may need to take other measures, medication or a catheter.
Avatar n tn Saw Palmetto and pygeum also improve urinary flow in cases of prostate enlargement and have been shown to improve sexual function in both men and women. Supplements to Boost Male Sexual Function: Arginine, Aged garlic extract, Gingko biloba, Vinpocetine, Vitamin E, Horny goat weed, Wild yam, Androstendione, Beta-sitosterol, L-carnitine, R-lipoic acid, Saw Palmetto, Pygeum Report By DR.
Avatar m tn 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.
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.
751197 tn?1270317756 I'm cross-posting this to the Thyroid Disorders, Prostate Cancer, and Men's Health groups. I had a radical retropubic prostatectomy (RRP) in 11/2006 following a diagnosis of prostate cancer. PSA since then has remained undetectable. A week ago, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism (THS=4.888). I've done some Google and Medline searches looking for any reports of correlation between loss of the prostate gland and thyroid gland dysfunction.

Avatar n tn I ceased the Saw Palmetto, and it hasn't returned since (4 years). I have no cancer, and my prostate is, according to my last checkup, with no lumps or swelling. PSA is normal.
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.
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!
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 m tn As Niko has suggested, Saw Palmetto is a wonderful herb for men's health, you can get it at a health food store or on line. I can't really add more, Niko has done a good job answering. Hope you feel better soon. God bless.

Avatar m tn This formula has been shown to regulate blood pressure, reduce the risk of prostate cancer, and is healthy for your heart. There is no severe side effects with this one.
2115734 tn?1334550447 Because orchialgia tends to be a symptom or feature of other conditions rather than a standalone process, it may be best to discuss it in forums like Urology, Men's Health, and Prostate Cancer. In areas like these, the discussions would be more comprehensive. If you feel there may be others who would like to discuss orchialgia on its own, though, you might want to consider starting a user group.
Avatar f tn I’m telling all my male friends not to ignore such symptoms - prostate cancer is much easier to treat - and CURE - in the earliest stages. I waited a bit too long & now have some complications. Best to catch & treat it early! If this is just benign enlargement, then no big deal. Sounds like your case is not of a serious nature yet, but stay on top of it & don’t ignore symptoms - this advice goes out to all guys, even as young as early 40s.

Avatar n tn Hi all. New to this. I am a 44 year old woman who is physically fit (gym 5 days a week) and eats pretty well. Approx 5 weeks ago I developed veins showing on both hands. They have not gone away and infact they are bulging most times, and I can "feel them". They have increased and I can see some starting to climb up my forearm now. Before this, my veins barely ever showed.
Avatar n tn I will say this - I recently had a prostate biopsy (which determined I do have prostate cancer, surgery scheduled for Jul 31), and after the the biopsy (they stick needles in the prostate & pull out small tissue samples), I had blood in my ejaculate for about 3 weeks - that's normal after that procedure & glad they warned me about it, looked really weird.
Avatar n tn It’s important to visit a doctor if you do see blood in semen. There is a rare chance that it is related to prostate cancer and so having it checked by a medical professional is a good idea. For men under the age of 50 it is rarely the cause of the bleeding though. If you do feel that it may have been caused by an injury and the blood is still present after a few weeks it’s prudent to see the doctor.
Avatar f tn I'm super scared and could really use some advice and opinions on what to do and could this be cancer? Could there be torsion that they're not seeing? Everyday I have pain in my right side that radiates to my back and leg. Nausea, heartburn, fatigue. Thanks for reading and sorry for the lengthy post.
Avatar m tn She gave them an ultrasound no sign of cancer. She tested my prostate and i felt and I felt no pain in testes. Ultrasound found some fluid on my stomach ( although the size was measured and i was told not enough fluid to cause pain) I have also seen my doctor he is cluless but gave me some antibiotics for clamidia/gonerea 3 day course (2 times) and another 10 day course of something similar to penecillin.
Avatar n tn Thanks everyone. Good discussion. I've been kicking around these questions and thoughts since I saw the doctor on January 11. I didn't know quite how to put it to words, still don't really. I just so got the feeling after meeting with the gyno that so very much of what I'm going through, and many other women, is absolutely normal. We just know about it because of technology but mainly because of this CYA stance that doctors have been forced to take these days.
Avatar n tn This was all comforting, since I have been developing a lot of other symptoms lately, and being the research junkie that I am, I was finding conditions matching my symptoms ranging from diabetes to cancer, and many things in between. Happily, the tests ruled out any of these conditions, and it is likely that just the anxiety from this one condition is causing all these other symptoms, each one compounding the anxiety, mimicking even more conditions.
Avatar m tn If you want to be sure, wait a while longer to see if any symptoms arise and avoid unprotected sex. You can also go get tested for Gono and Chlamydia and NGU at this point if you're really worried. Good luck and let us know what you find out.
Avatar n tn Don't fret though -- I'm still happy, and not depressed. I'm just trying to be realistic for my own health if this does happen again. And if it does happen there is a bright siad (as you know I always have a bright side) -- I will be able to wait a couple months to try again and then possibly be able to have the fall or winter baby I've always wanted! Oh, and V, your Oprah idea is great! I don't think she's done a show on miscarriages and how common they are, etc.
Avatar n tn If you want a bigger penis, you have you have the right attitude and work ethic to achieve your goals. WORK AT IT! Do the Men's Health Manual Workout Plan daily, and we guarantee you will see results in as little as 2-4 weeks. Follow the directions exactly, and NEVER give up. We think it's an absolute shame that some men are so ashamed about their penis size that they never allow themselves to get into a relationship. Penis size does matter.
Avatar m tn -Thyroid problems -Diabetes I had a prostate exam that was normal, but I still haven't ruled that out as a cause. I have an upcoming appointment with an osteopath, to discuss any potential link between my back and these problems (though both a chiropractor and physical therapist did not think a link was likely). I'm also planning to see a neurologist asap. I've already seen a urologist, but they didn't have a diagnosis. I'll post as I learn more.
Avatar n tn Everyone here needs to start realizing that hormones are the cause of diminished blood flow to the penis and in turn effecting erection quality and overall penis health. Once the balance (not just 'higher' levels) are back using whatever treatment is required your penis will hang and swell up like it did before, in fact i might have actually "gained" some length and girth since starting replacement treatment. So there is hope.
Avatar n tn hey dude, the info i am going to give you is from extensive research done by me . i hope you find all your answers. masturbation is overall a bad thing. masturbation kills your concentration and memory power. it weaken your eye sight, dark patches under eyes, and lose weight. sperms are nothing but HIGH RICH PROTEINS. so everytime you are masturbating, you are throwing out proteins, hence your body growth stops and maturity comes mentally and physically.
