Prostate (Definition)

The prostate is a gland that lies at the base of the bladder and surrounding a segment of urethra.

What medication is prescribed for a prostate gland which is enlarged in size?

Prostate: Generally the size of the prostate is not as significant as the presence of obstructive or irritative voiding symptoms. These can occur with various prostate sizes.

Do alchohol and spices contribute in increasing the size of prostate gland, or interfere in the effect of alfuzosin hydrochlride?

See below: Alcohol has no effect on prostate size. It may make you more likely to have dizziness when taking alfuzosin, but probably doesn't decrease it's effectiveness. Alcohol is a diuretic (it makes your kidneys produce more urine), so it will worsen your urinary symptoms such as frequency. Additionally, alcohol and spicy foods are bladder irritants that may cause you to have feelings of urgency. ...Read more

Does an enlarged prostate gland necessarily lead to increased frequency of urination?

Does an enlarged prostate gland necessarily lead to increased frequency of urination?

No, not necessarily.: Though men with enlarged prostates tend to have more urinary symptoms, there is no clear correlation between prostate volume and urinary bother. Prostates increase in size because nodules of tissue within the prostate enlarge. If a nodule starts to block urine outflow, you can get urinary frequency even with a relatively small prostate. Some men with very large prostates have minimal bother. ...Read more

Could frequent masturbation increase the risk of prostate cancer?

Could frequent masturbation increase the risk of prostate cancer?

It just doesn't: One of the cults is telling this to young people to frighten them. It's totally made up. These people are rotten. Enjoy your body, and accept the reassurance that it also won't make you demented, bald, infertile or any of the other stuff. Think about something wholesome -- maybe the person that you do / will love -- rather than internet garbage. ...Read more

Masturbation at 20-30 's increase the risk of prostate cancer. While at 50's it lowers the risk. Is it true?

Masturbation at 20-30 's increase the risk of prostate cancer. While at 50's it lowers the risk. Is it true?

Just not true: It would be difficult to find a control group. There's not a shred of evidence that this is true. The claim that young men give themselves cancer in this way was made up by one of the cults to frighten vulnerable teens. "Heroic abstinence" is strongly suspected as a risk factor for benign prostatic hyperplasia but obviously we can't do controlled studies. I'm sorry people lied to you. ...Read more

I have a swollen gland next to clitoris after masturbation. Its itchy and painful. What could it be? I am 23 years old.

See a doctor: Without an examination it is difficult to tell. There are many skin conditions that can effect this area too. I would recommend follow up with your doctor. In the meantime, avoid scratching. May try ice every 20 minutes on/off for irritation for 1st 24 hrs.

Could masturbation tax the adrenal glands?

Could masturbation tax the adrenal glands?

No. Just not true.: I'm sorry someone told you something that foolish. It won't give you addison's disease, and it won't make you short, fat, stupid, hairy, ugly, smooth, infertile, or an unfit husband / father. Your adrenals get you through the most intense physical and mental stress -- while enjoying your body makes it possible for you to relax, sleep, and become a functioning adult. ...Read more

Could masturbation act on the body like stimulants in that it taxes the adrenal glands?

Could masturbation act on the body like stimulants in that it taxes the adrenal glands?

Says who?: Somebody is feeding you a line of pure rubbish. If this actually happened, we pathologists would see people sick or dead just from enjoying themselves. We don't. Look at these people finishing the boston marathon. If this amount of emotional and physical stress is survivable and healthy, then when you do by yourself is nothing. You're an adult. Be discerning. Best wishes. ...Read more

Can you tell me if I could masturbate at 56 for prostate sake.?

Of course: Or for any reason that seems right, including just enjoying yourself. More frequent ejaculation is considered by some experts to promote prostate health; it would be hard to do a prospected, randomized study. Embrace who you are, no matter what your age. ...Read more
