As men get older, they become more likely to experience symptoms of prostate enlargement. This is a common phenomenon that isn’t necessarily dangerous, but it can be inconvenient to have urine flow slow or to be unable to empty the bladder completely. There are medications for enlarged prostate. Are there natural alternatives as well? Most men will develop prostate cancer if they live long enough. In many cases, it is very slow growing and has no impact on the quality of life. In other cases, though, it is more aggressive. How is prostate cancer treated and what are the pros and cons of a watch and wait policy? Erectile dysfunction can be a red flag for other health concerns. What treatments are best? What other issues should be considered for men with this problem? Guests: Culley C. Carson III, MD, Rhodes Distinguished Professor and Chief of Urology at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine. (Photo is of Dr. Carson) Mark W. McClure, MD, Founder and director of Landmark Urology and Complementary Medicine in Raleigh, NC. He is author of Smart Medicine for a Healthy Prostate.

I have a very intractable problem with my prostate and I am hoping for some suggestions....
Problem started 18 months ago where I had prostatitis and mild ED. The Urologist prescribed 500mg Levaquin for the infection and Uroxatral 10mg for the BPH. This worked fine for a while then I developed overactive bladder. We have tried all sorts of treatments without success. I am getting up 5+ times nightly and have difficulty getting a stream started. There is also very heavy tightening of the bladder muscles which keep me up at night and is very uncomfortable. .....My urologist seems stumped.
Any suggestions?

Does frequency of ejaculation affect prostate health, e.g. BPH or prostate cancer?
