Yes they do: If you are using Anabolic steroids like testosterone, it shuts off your body's signal to the testes to make testosterone themselves. If this continues long enough, the testes will actually shrink in size.
A 43-year-old member asked:

Wear protection: It is definitely possible to severely injure the testes with a blunt injury. Most of the time there is not a significant injury and the pain resolves on its own. If you have swelling of the scrotum, you should be evaluated with an ultrasound to see if the testis has been ruptured and requires fixing surgically. Remember to wear proper protection for contact sports and baseball.

No, but...: Prostate cancer is not the male ovarian cancer, but prostate, breast and ovarian cancers are all hormone-related cancers which have some similarities. In fact, some families which share one of the known breast cancer genes are also at higher risk of prostate cancer, so i always pay attention to the family history when determining risk.

Thank you but why is it happening now and why in my case. I have to wait about 2 minutes for the drops and if I ignore it then I feel I still need to urinate.
HealthTap member
Appreciate your response though my concern was more for the frequency of urination and the way it happens
HealthTap member
