What prostate procedure or surgery will have the least amount of side effects of retrograde ejaculation, no semen, and subdued climax. I have bph.

BPH treatment: 59 y m with BPH & tamsulosin. Depending on the size & complications your urologist can give best option. Minimal invasive procedures are microwave, laser, needle ablation. Then turp, nerve sparing prostatectomy, incision prostate. The later two preserve erection & ejaculation. Turp is 90% done &5% retrograde ejaculation rate. Again size & complications determine the choice of procedure. Thanks.

Too young for it: Prostate enlargement is a problem of later years, starting at 50 years of age and causing symptoms in your 60s. You do not need a cystoscopy to check its size, it is beat done with a physicians finger in the rectum.

FOLLOW UR DOCs ADVIC: That is a rather large prostate and you need to have it checked by your urologist, get psa level done and if symptomatic and normal psa, you may need meds to shrink the prostate and improve urinary flow.

What do you suggest if I have an enlarged prostate weighing about 140gms.?

More information: At age 49 how did the 140 gram come up? Rectal exam or prostate ultrasound? Do you know what your prostate sympom score is? Generally speaking, with a prostate this size, surgery may be needed although trying medication first will not hurt. Talk to your urologist.

Prostate: Second guessing your doctor after you leave the examination room is hardly productive. Call him/her for clarification. But given that no medication or intervention was prescribed you probably don't have anything serious. It can be intimidating to undergo a medical examination, but be sure to voice any concerns or questions during the process for maximum value. Seek a 2nd opinion if unsatisfied.

If I have an enlarged prostate, how often should I ejaculate or have sex?

If I have an enlarged prostate, how often should I ejaculate or have sex?

Not relevant...: It is not relevant; you may intercourse or ejaculate whenever or however you can tolerate and perform. But remember: Sex arousal - ejaculation will increase circulation through it and cause vigorous muscle contraction. Being "too" often in such may exaggerate the already existing urinary symptoms. So, let your body tell its own story and respect it, and take actions to adapt accordingly. Best wish

Just got a rectal exam at emergency, doctor say that I have an enlarged prostate but it's not to worry about, just odd because I'm 32. How does he know it's not to worry about? Why would I get an enlarged prostate so young?

PROSTATITIS EVAL: R/O prostatitis it may be tough to treat. Hopefully you have seen a urologist recently. 1st line ab would be doxycycline for 6-8 wks, if no response cipro (ciprofloxacin) may be tried. I would recheck labs /UA C&S. & testosterone level. You also need abdominal/pelvic/prostate US R/O prostate stones. Also switch to gluten free diet Wholeapproach. Com /GUTBLISS. Com

Why always 4-5 drops of seminal fluid comes out while passing stool? Do I have an enlarged prostate?

Prostate massage: When the large stool passing out, you prostate sitting right in front of your rectum is getting massaged. That may produce seminal fluid, which is normal. Prostate enlargement is unlikely to present in your young age.

BPH: I suggest you start a prescription drug for relieving obstruction from enlarged prostate. Otherwise you are likely to get complications such as infection and kidney damage.

Hi I have an enlarged prostate two weeks ago I passed four kidney stones now every time I pass urine I get a burning pain in my bladder?

Hi I have an enlarged prostate two weeks ago I passed four kidney stones now every time I pass urine I get a burning pain in my bladder?

May Have Infection: You may have an infection in your bladder or maybe some of the stone material is still in bladder. You need to see your doctor and be checked. Meanwhile I recommend you drink 6 oz. Cranberry juice and over one quart of water per day. Good idea to take magnesium citrate or magnesium malate once daily as it helps prevents stones. Did you get the analysis of the stone constituents results?

Do you think I could have an enlarged prostate if I am 30?

Do you think I could have an enlarged prostate if I am 30?

Possible: It is possible to have an enlarged prostate at age 30. Is there a family history of prostate disease or cancer? Urethral disorders may give some difficulty with voiding that are similar to prostate obstruction symptoms. You should be seen for a physical exam and urine studies.

Should you drink 2 liters of water a day if you have an enlarged prostate?

Dr. James Lin Dr. Lin
1 doctor agreed:

No, . ..: Drinking more water would not affect how your bladder and urethra work together, but just force kidneys to excrete more urine naturally resulting in peeing more often; this is true for humans with normally functioning kidneys. How much do we need to drink a day? To http://formefirst. Com/waterdrink. Html for detial and you decide...

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.

Is it bad to drink too much water when you have an enlarged prostate?

Not necessarily: No it's not bad. Drinking lots of water is good for your body but the bad part of having a large prostate is you may have issues with needing to go urinate more often and more often at night with more fluid intake.
