Is prostate massage dangerous?

Vigorous massage is: Prostate massage is used in clinical practice rarely to diagnose chronic bacterial prostatitis. If used to achieve an intense orgasm, it should be done carefully, as vigorous massage may result in damage to the nearby thin rectal lining, stricture of the membranous urethra, or possibly epididymitis. If a patient has acute bacterial prostatitis, vigorous massage may seed the blood with bacteria. ...Read more

What does a dr do to massage your prostate?

What does a dr do to massage your prostate?

Prostate exam plus: A prostate massage is performed in the same way a prostate exam is performed. It is a finger exam, into the rectum. After examining the surface of the prostate, the md will push on the back of the prostate in a methodical fashion. Men may experience a strong urge to urinate and sometimes some burning. They are unlikely to leak urine during it. Usually lasts no more than 20-30 seconds. ...Read more

Prostate massage: As a urologist, I can honestly say that I cannot recommend any form of self rectal exam or massage. If you are seeking relief from prostatitis symptoms, any form of ejaculation will give similar results. ...Read more

How can one determine if they have an enlarged prostate?

How can one determine if they have an enlarged prostate?

Clinical or imaging.: A digital rectal exam by an experienced urologist is one way, though there is significant interobserver variability. The best way is by transrectal ultrasound (trus), where measurements can be made & volume calculated. This test is usually unnecessary as urinary obstruction is a clinical diagnosis, not completely related to size, and prostate medications are given to see if there is a response. ...Read more

How often can you/ should you massage the prostate when u have prostatitis. And how do you massage it? How do u find it? I'm 99.9% sure I have it.

Usually that is: Not needed in treating prostatitis. It is done by inserted a gloved finger into the rectum. The back of the prostate is just in front of the rectum. Unless one is a contursionist, hard to to by oneself. ...Read more

Ordering myself a prostate ultrasound. What's the best all in one ultrasound to evaluate the prostate/tech/method/terms used. Thanks.

Transrectal: A transrectal prostate ultrasound is technically the best but is not a screening tool unless correlated with a PSA blood test and a doctor's exam. A prep to clean the colon is usually given and the ultrasound probe is inserted into the rectum with a latex covering over it. If done with a urologist, any suspicious abnormality could be biopsied at that time. ...Read more

US, Canada, Europe are different when viewing prostate milking and massage on a regular basis. Why so much hassle in the US am I missing something?

US, Canada, Europe are different when viewing prostate milking and massage on a regular basis. Why so much hassle in the US am I missing something?

Here are some. ..: Sorry to see your frustration with the hassle to get prostate milking/massage in the US, which is understandable. Being said before, the concept & practice of prostate change has evolved & changed over the past 30-50 yrs, but with various pace among Doctors and the public. Sensibly, one would not argue with facts such as its sworn-by benefit in an individual, to whom practicing such may be tried. ...Read more

Are doctors trained in prostate milking or they just realize how to do it vs prostate massage. Does there always need to be medical evidence for it?

Are doctors trained in prostate milking or they just realize how to do it vs prostate massage. Does there always need to be medical evidence for it?

Highly controversy..: Practicing prostate massage has had its fan & fun, smiling & frowning for decades. Theoretically, massaging prostate probably may produce tissue "contusion" to express existing unwanted fluid into systemic circulation. Nonetheless, occasional patients swore by its "wonder" in relieving "prostatitis"-related Sx. Nowadays, its once sworn-by practice has dwindled, in time, becoming a history. ...Read more

The last time I massaged my prostate, I produced notable precum for the first time but I barely came when I masturbated right after. What's going on?

The last time I massaged my prostate, I produced notable precum for the first time but I barely came when I masturbated right after. What's going on?

Unusual to see...: You got to have a very long and flexible arm for self prostate massage. But what you observed & described should bear no clinical significance as long as being able to function at need. For the time being, it is better to leave it alone and do not try to masturbate compulsively. To sort out what may be wrong, follow instructions in http://www. Formefirst. Com/eNewsletter06.html.

Prostate massage I have been experimenting with prostate massage and milking. I only get a small amount of clear fluid and I think I should be getting more. What is a normal amount of fluid should I get when milking?

I: I am not sure why are you doing that? In general prostate massage is reserved for patient with chronic prostatitis. The amount of fluid is dependent on how congested the prostate is. If one has not ejaculated for a while, you will have more fluid.

How far do I have to insert my finger for a prostate massage?

Being Sexual: Actually this is not a question you take to the physician. It is inappropriate for a physician to tell you to have or how to have sex. This crosses a lot of our ethical boundaries. I often recommend that my patients have at least one guide book to sex so that the activities can be described and learned about in clear and adult language. I have them start with "the joy of sex". ...Read more

I've been reading that a prostate massage can help hemorrhoids...Is this true?

What are U reading?: The mechanism of hemorrhoid development (see past healthtap answers) has little to do with the prostate. Therefore, mechanical and prolonged digital massage of the prostate may serve other purposes but should have little positive impact on hemorrhoids. Are you sure your problem is really hemorrhoids? And, more to the point, find another source of medical information please. ...Read more

Mildly enlarged prostate and slight sludge in bladder. Taking roliflo od 2 mg one capsule a day before going to bed. Pvr, pas reports show normal.

Not sure a problem: I'm not sure what you mean by sludge in bladder. However if urine is too concentrated, dark or slightly cloudy, it may mean that you are not drinking enough clear fluids (try to get in 5-6 glasses of water, etc by 8pm). If there is a problem with the bladder, only the urologist will be able to define and treat that. ...Read more
