Disease or anatomy: Low dose rate brachytherapy (i-125 or pd-103)) for prostate cancer is a potential treatment in lower risk or some intermediate risk cancers, or in combination with external beam radiation for higher risk disease. High dose rate brachy is usually reserved for high risk disease, but is far less commonly performed. There are anatomical criteria (size of prostate, pubic arch shape) to be met as well.

Lowered function: While sexual potential can carry through into quite older age, the erectile capacity and ejacualate volume decrease with age. Some lose desire which is entirely psychological. Note the many products on the market for this and the destruction of endangered animals for this (rhino horns, bear gall bladder stones, etc.).

What causes morning erections in men?

Dr. Simon Kimm
Urology 16 years experience
The sleep cycle.: Erections occur as part of the sleep cycle. This is called nocturnal penile tumescence (npt) and occurs 3-5 times per night, with the last one noticed as a morning erection. The cause is not known, but there appears to be a neural and hormonal circuit which is disinhibited during sleep, specifically in the rem stage of sleep.
