Common Questions and Answers about Men's health issues prostate


Avatar n tn Possibilities that may need to be considered include respiratory tract issues such as infections etc., GI/ GU issues, systemic issues such as liver or kidney related conditions, haematological causes, growths/ masses (benign/ malignant), a few autoimmune conditions etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by an internist at your earliest convenience for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar m tn Hello~ Specialmom has given you a very good answer, I have also requested that this post be moved to men's health, they may have some more insight into this issue as well. I hope you feel better soon.
Avatar n tn You can also support long term prostate health by using an all-natural prostate supplement (health professionals recommend Prostate Ph) containing botanical extracts like white button mushroom and African plum tree bark. Both of these have shown positive results in medical research with lab mice – they have even shown the ability to shrink prostate tumors. Hope you find an answer to your problem!
Avatar m tn Although this is a great forum for questions regarding pain, I feel that your question would be better answered in the Men's Health Forum. I'm also wondering if you have had your Prostate checked? My Husband had a simular issue and his Prostate was the culprit. I truley hope you find the answer your looking for. Please take care and good luck.
Avatar m tn You should see a urologist, who can test you for diabetes, thyroid disease, vascular issues. Erections are an important barometer for men's health, so it's perfectly normal to talk about it. You want to find a urologist who specializes in ED, because even some urologists are more interested in this than others. Even doctors can be more shy or less shy about sex topics. So you could call a urology practice and ask for a doctor who is specializes in ED.
Avatar f tn This is the fibromyalgia community. Please post at the men's issues or urology forums. BTW your profile states female. It is confusing when your question is male health oriented. And your English is fine.
Avatar m tn I took a Mens prostate health vitamin, lots of zinc and lecithin and shortly after I had the same problems. I have bald spots all over my neck now and on my jaw line between my chin and sideburn area. I used to have a bushy chin strap beard and now I have a patchy *** beard and have to shave sideburns and all of my neck. I haven't realized the connection to the mens vitamins until I read this here, so there is definitely a trending issue here.
Avatar m tn What could have caused this, I believe there is a correlation between the encounter and my current health issues. Is there a test for HPV? Should I use the Lotrimin AF on the discoloration on my penis or should I see a dermatologist and have them take a look. I am concerned that my doctor may be looking at all these things separately.
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!
Avatar n tn If you can't get him to tell the doctor then I would do it myself. Men are just not as open about their sexual health issues as us women are.
Avatar n tn Obviously, my advice is to stop the steroids. You might try posting this in men's health as well, so you can get more advice. This forum is for stds.
Avatar m tn In the first instance I would go to a doctor that specialises in "men's health". Make a list of ALL your symptoms; mention when they first appeared and how long they appeared for. He or she will run all the required tests to confirm or deny if you have a STD. If you do not have a STD then you should go to an urologist to check the bladder, kidneys, gallbladder etc. Is there a history of prostate problems in your family?
Avatar m tn Hi Rajadhya, Sorry there are no physicians on this site. Many of us have a medical background - but sorry - no doctors. That said I'm willing to respond to your question. First of all size does not have a lot to do with satisfying your spouse. Sex is much more than just the mechanics. The largest sex organ in the human body is the brain! Yes, that is a true statement. A Urologist may be able to prescribe medications that will help with your erections - but generally not the size.
1676223 tn?1304962589 In the future I will only go to places that are used to addressing gay men's health and not to my PCP or a general free clinic because they don't know how to deal with gay men's health.
Avatar f tn system can wreak havoc on the endocrine system which increases risk for a number of health issues as well as quality of life. Hope this helps! Let us know what more you find out and how you are doing.
16335396 tn?1461337296 Hi, men can get a UTI also know as NGU from non sexual contacts like urine backing up in the prostate. It can be caused by natural organisims like mycoplamas as well. The thing with UTI, unless they can identify the organism (which is most cases is not known) you would not know if its caused by sex. Most common std,s of the urethra are gono and chlamydia which can be easy identified.
Avatar m tn Anyway, after reading all these posts, which you must admit aren't the most uplifting, I went out and got a magazine. Men's Health. Get it? I turned the page from thinking about illness and mental states and switched to health. Only cost me $3.95. My apologies. I think I am panicking about not being able to stop this health kick.
Avatar m tn also this really isn't a std related issue. I'd look for a forum for men's health or men's prostate/urethritis issues for better follow up. we help with getting a proper diagnosis and testing and something that's an issue for 10 years, isn't an issue for this forum.
Avatar n tn In 2003 in a clinic for possible rehab regarding a neurological condition that I have, a consultation with a different urologist was part of the study in regards to sexual health. After having been interviewed by this urologist, it was determined that my problems were physical rather than psychological. Some of my problems could have been the result of medications for hyper tension, as well as neurological nature. This urologist suggested injecting my penis with Caverject while in his office.
Avatar n tn Hi everyone. I have another forum I visit relating to chronic pain/illness. Recently, a story was posted concerning the CA-125, maybe some of you have seen it, I know I have. Starts talking about Gilda Radner and how we all should insist on having the test run. Very moving, very scary too because of it not mentioning how unreliable this test can be. Anyway, it's caused a bit of a scare.
Avatar m tn Hey Worried, This forum is really an amazing resource, not only to get a sense of what is going on in terms of men's health issues (which we rarely discuss with doctors, much less our buddies!), but getting support for mental and physical uncertainty. I hope my posting has helped. I'm fairly certain mine's not an std, especially after reading some of the posts in the dermatology and urology boards (which I suggest you read as well).
Avatar n tn Here are my stats in case there is some common link that could be causing it. 53, excellent health, have enlarge prostate (take Flomax). Also take Centrum Silver, Zocor, Nexium and a baby aspirin. But, have taken all these for a long, long time and doubt any of them are the cause. I started a new job where I sit in an office chair 8 hours+ each day. The vibration started a few days after I started this job, though I've had office type jobs my entire life.
Avatar n tn Dr. Vanessa, in case you read this, there are a TON of posts on the men's health forum under a subject called "buzzing penis". The symptoms for all of these men range the gamut, but they all have one thing in common - a feeling almost like a cell phone on vibrate is going off somewhere in their penises or anuses, or between. Very unusual to say the least. We keep hearing it may have something to do with pudendal nerve entrapment, but we're looking for a doc's take on this.
Avatar m tn A common complaint is left-side veins 'popping' out or becoming much more prominent, also sometimes accompanied by some pain. I've heard some complain of right-side issues, but I personally have not had much of an issue with that side. 3. Shorter length. - Usually nocturnal erections are normal length, and sometimes spontaneous are normal length, but many times, especially when other symptoms are present it can be difficult to get to full-length erection...
1395422 tn?1308019851 My husband is not circumcised and believe me, there are no hygienic issues. I believe no little boy should go through this only a couple days after he's born. Also, research shows that it desenthetizes the penis for him later. There's no medical reason for this, it's painful and I believe that human body is perfect the way it's created, how can we choose a body part and just decide to get rid of it? Also, about 90% of the world's male population is uncircumcized, think about it.
Avatar n tn Both of them drink quite a lot of alcohol daily and one of them has also consumed tons of beef throughout life in an area where cows are still raised with estrogen. He also developed prostate problems. What I`m getting at is that you might have too much estrogen in your system or maybe it is a side effect of any medication. And, oh yes, anti-depressants will do that to you too. I hear your despair and you`re too young to beat yourself up about this for the rest of your life.
Avatar n tn wife thinks it may be a circulation problem related to the varicoceles I seem to be developing. I'm due to get an ultrasound soon for this and other issues, so I will let everyone know what I find.
Avatar f tn I agree with you, though that exercise before surgery is a very good idea. I have a health club membership and can take Pilates classes and use the pool. Thanks again for being there.
