As a man, it’s your responsibility to get a regular prostate check. Your friends and family look to you to take care of your health and to stay healthy.  After all, they rely on you for quite a few things!  Here at the Men’s Vitality Center, we take prostate health very seriously.  Prostate care has certainly came a long way in the past few years as medical knowledge continues to grow.  What do you know about prostate health?

What is the prostate?

The prostate is the a very small gland, about the size of a walnut, in the man’s body that is part of his reproductive system. It sits right below a man’s bladder and in front of the rectum. The prostate helps make semen for your body.  semen is important as it is what transports sperm.

Have you been told that you may have an enlarged prostate?

As you age, your prostate can enlarge over time.  Think of it this way, by the time a man is 40, his prostate can enlarge from the size of a walnut to the size of an apricot.  By the time you reach the age of 60, it may have increased from the size of an apricot to that of a lemon! Since the prostate surrounds part of the urethra, it can restrict the urethra and cause issues with urination.  An enlarged prostate is also often referred to as benign (noncancerous) prostatic hyperplasia or BPH.  BPH is common and is difficult to prevent.  Over half of men over the age of 50 will develop BPH, while up to 90% (!) of men older than 90 years old will develop the condition.

What are the symptoms of an enlarged prostate?

  • Trouble initiating urination
  • Having to urinate frequently, particularly at night
  • Feeling that the bladder is not empty after urinating
  • Feeling a sudden urge to urinate
  • Having to stop and start repeatedly while urinating
  • Having to strain to urinate

To prevent or manage an enlarged prostate, it’s imperative that if you notice the above symptoms and speak to your doctor at the Men’s Vitality Center immediately.

What types of treatments are available for an enlarged prostate?

  • Lifestyle changes. These changes could include less drinking at night and before bedtime, especially those drinks with alcohol in them.
  • Watching and waiting. Patients who have an enlarged prostate but do not suffer any of the symptoms may be advised by their doctor to simply continue to get an annual checkup to keep a watchful eye on it.
  • Drug therapy. Two common treatments for BPH are alpha-blockers, which alleviate BPH symptoms, and 5 alpha-reductase inhibitors, which help shrink the prostate. Many men take them together.
  • Surgery. Surgery is normally a last resort thing used for men who have severe symptoms that have not been helped by other treatments.

Your prostate health is important.  Call and schedule an appointment with your medical provider at  the Men’s Vitality Clinic today.

Testimonials

I have More Energy

“I don’t even remember what it’s like to feel like I used to before I started treatment. I have more energy, I have a burning desire to work out and in one year I have gained about 15 pounds of muscle. I’ve lost weight, I look great, I feel great and I honestly feel like I can even smell and see things more clearly. My wife is also VERY happy with all the above.”

Testimonials

MVC for Over Two Years

I’ve been going to MVC for over 2 years now. I wish I hadn’t waited so long to have my T levels checked! Most men have no idea how prevalent low T is (even if you’re in your 30’s or younger) and how easy, painless, and convenient TRT treatment is. The biggest obvious change for me is much better overall energy – no more mid-afternoon naps, better ability to focus and concentrate, and needless to say, better libido. Andre and his staff are the best in Phoenix — if you’re a guy of ANY age, it’s really worth it to have your testosterone levels checked — even if only as a way to get a baseline reference — I’ve had guys as young as 30 test very low. As a fitness coach, I always tell my clients that no amount of hard training or clean diet will offset hormonal deficiencies. Establishing optimal hormone levels is job 1 when it comes to maximizing your health and longevity!
