Regardless of age, everyone wants a healthy sex life. But when prostate cancer strikes, this can be tricky. In many cases treatments for prostate cancer can lead to erectile dysfunction, but discovering how to have a healthy sex life after prostate cancer is not impossible.
The prostate is a small, muscular gland that is part of the male reproductive system. It slowly swells as a man gets older, squeezing the urethra and limiting the flow of urine. An enlarged prostate is known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia or BPH.
Accompanying symptoms can be mild to severe and usually get worse over time. Diagnosis helps to rule out other more serious conditions and can help to manage the symptoms and treat the condition.
