Please also explain to my why you have a hard time seeing doctors?

I need you to answer these questions to help
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

No, I do not take medication -- yet I was taking meds for a bad cold- flu but it is almost gone now.


 


I have a hard time seeing Doctors because its expensive, I don't like waiting and I am afraid that they will find other things wrong and it will turn out very expensive then.

Expert:  Dr. Brims replied 1 year ago.
I think you have prostate enlargement, this is likely from benign prostate hyperplasia, which is a non-cancerous condition, but it occurs in most men as they age. There are drugs to treat this, like flomax , but you must have it examined first to make sure. Milking the prostate will it help this condition in any way, and you should not try to do it, you will likely cause harm. Milking the prostate is not a form of treatment

Dr.Brims,


 


Thank you for answering my question -- there is still the part of the reduced sperm now -- will the enlarged prostate reduce the sperm and make it difficult to com ?


 


Thanks

Expert:  Dr. Brims replied 1 year ago.
The reduced sperm may be due to retrograde ejaculation, or it may be related to age, the semen production has been known to decrease with age, I don't think it is related to the enlarged prostate. AN enlarged prostate should not make it difficult to ejaculate
