Sexual desire: Generally, sexual desire problems are either psychological, due to low testosterone or a combination of both. Men with prostate enlargement and prostate cancer can have normal sexual desire. Unfortunately, some of the treatments for these diseases can have an adverse effect upon sexual desire.

Prostate disease can both increase or decrease sexual desire; it can also eliminate sexual desire completely; it all depends on the disease and the parts involved plus the psychological makeup of the individual.
