Md said not to worry about low (7.5) free psa. Is this true or should I see a urologist? 60yrs. Normal psa for age.

This: This really depends on what your total psa is. If your total psa is between 4 and 10 it is more significant as the lower your free psa, the higher the likelihood of prostate cancer. If your psa is less than 4, the free psa is really not that important. ...Read more

An online urologist said 'rough masturbation' can be a cause of Peyronie's disease. This defies what most other doctors say, why would this be?

An online urologist said 'rough masturbation' can be a cause of Peyronie's disease. This defies what most other doctors say, why would this be?

Not a healthtap Dr.: Masturbation would have 2B unbelievably rough. It would have to cause mini-fractures of an erect penis to cause Peyronie's. Not all online advice is accurate. Healthtap replies are reviewed by other physicians/specialists & thus more believable. Masturbation for a 16-y-o is very normal. ...Read more

Cause in 53yo male of: psa 4.7, psa:free psa ratio 8.9%, mri shows bullish mass on prostate. Urologist says all is ok. Should I get a second opinion?

Here are some...: F/T PSA at 8.9% is low - significant, suggesting a high likelihood to have prostate cancer but requiring prostate ultrasound and biopsy to confirm. Total PSA is at or above high end. So, combine the considerations of age, finding rectal exam, family Hx, PSA change over time, and the above so to decide if US + Bx are needed. More?

Why do I have trouble talking in a group when I do fine online?

Why do I have trouble talking in a group when I do fine online?

Cyber-Connection: Speaking to a group of individuals ranks as one the most anxiety producing situations for anyone. Online there is a protective layer due to something I call "cyber-connection protection". There can be less spontaneity in a cyber-connection. Online your feedback may be limited or non-existent. Both factors would lead to fewer troubles when talking to an online versus a live group. ...Read more

Why are so many people talking about eating gluten free? Is this a fad?

Why are so many people talking about eating gluten free? Is this a fad?

Probably not a fad: About 1% of population develop a disease called celiac-sprue from gluten and many more have gluten sensitivity. However, if you have neither of these problems, it is fine to eat gluten despite the hyperbole spreading about it. Although many sources of gluten contain genetically modified gluten, there is no good evidence that it causes long term problems for those without sensitivity or celiac dx. ...Read more
