I know, this may seem awkward, but next time you see your father, your uncle, or any gentleman over age 60, ask them about their prostate. If you know the man well enough, and he feels comfortable discussing the topic, he will surely share a whole litany of common prostate problems that are troubling him or have troubled him. That's because an enlarged prostate and even prostate cancer may be in the cards for every man over a certain age.
It's a scary but true fact about male aging. For instance, every man should be aware that prostate cancer is one of the most common problems facing men today. It tops the list of all cancers that afflict men. Prostate cancer is happening in nearly as many men as breast cancer is in women. Prostate cancer doesn't get the attention that breast cancer does mainly because men would rather not discuss what they are going through.
The second thing most men don't, but should, know is exactly what that prostate is. The prostate is part of a man's sexual organs. Located just below the bladder and wrapped around the urethra, the prostate is approximately the same size as a walnut. The prostates primary function is to add fluid to your sperm during ejaculation.
Most of the time, men don't even realize they have a prostate because it's a hidden internal organ. Typically, men only find out what and where their prostate is when they begin to suffer a one of the many common prostate problems.
For example, men should know that prostate issues aren't just for older men. Men under 50 can develop prostatitis, an extremely painful infection of their prostate. Prostatitis is a swelling of the prostate that can cause fever, burning sensation during urination, and fatigue.
All men over 50 should be aware of the number one most common prostate problem, an enlarged prostate, or medically known as benign prostatic hypertrophy. This benign (nonfatal) condition is actually far more common in older men than prostate cancer is. This should give some comfort to men if they develop this.
Some of the most common symptoms of an enlarged prostate are leaking and dribbling during urination, a weak urine stream, trouble getting started with urination, and even small amounts of blood in the urine.
Although an enlarged prostate is more common than prostate cancer, men should be aware that the two can go hand in hand. It's not always the case, and many men with an enlarged prostate will never develop into cancer, but it's good practice to keep your eyes out for both, because they can have similar symptoms.
In general, all men beginning at the age of 50 should pay attention to their prostate health. In addition to routine check-ups to their primary care physician or urologist, a daily supplement that contains all of the doctor recommended ingredients should be taken to support their prostate and promote over all prostate health.
