One side effect of prostate cancer therapy is impotence. If you tell me instead it will be like a penis, but smaller, I will be relatively happy.

Until a few years ago, impotence was guaranteed.  Infertility is still guaranteed without extra help - the prostate makes part of the swimmer juice.

I'm an Atheist, but if there is one thing that could convince me that there is a god, it's the fact that no matter how hard we try, there is no way to increase the size of our junk. See, god (if he exists as the bible describes him) seems to love misery. Nothing makes a man more miserable than having his junk either not work or be a size he's not happy with. So god made sure that this was the one part of the body that no alterations can improve on. However, he (if he exists) sure has worked hard on finding ways to either decrease its size or to make it not work. Fark you god. Fark you, you cancer causing, emotionally needy deity. Fark you....

Prostate cancer can be lethal, just not for the majority of men diagnosed. My dad was 53 when diagnosed. Two weeks after the initial test results came back, other tests revealed that his entire body was riddled with it. He died three months after finding out he had prostate cancer.
The doctors said it was not common to see such aggressive prostate cancer, but it can happen. Guys, please get
checked. 53 is too young to die from something that if found early enough, can be treated.

I got farked up with a spinal cord injury that broke my junk. At first it was horrible coming to terms with losing something so identified with being essential to being a man. But as time goes on, you get used to it. And let me tell you, as time goes by, I'm more and more amazed at how obsessed the average male is with sex and his penis. Me, I'm just happy that I'm starting to learn to walk again. I can learn to live without sex, but being able to stand up and do basic things like wipe my own ass is so much more important to me now.

Want to learn coping skills? Learn to live with not being able to have sex with you wife, while relying on her to do EVERYTHING. As a man, that period of time was.....hard.

Isn't this just the well know effect of "People think their penises are smaller when they suddenly spend a lot of time worrying about their penis getting smaller"? It's pretty well know, and is the basis of things like the internet Propecia panic.


If you've spent a lifetime of barely looking at your penis, then suddenly something makes you continually check your penis, you'll think it's getting smaller. It's entirely psychosomatic. Like to-be-brides who are suddenly checking their weight hourly pre-wedding after a lifetime of paying attention suddenly think they're bloated.

Isn't surgery possible? Might leave you with an ugly, nonfunctional frankenpenis (I guess it must, or men would get it all the time), but theoretically medical science will improve on that someday.

In any case, I was thinking the same thing: damn, God is mean.

I was diagnosed with prostate cancer 2 years ago when I was 49. The urologist scored the cancer at a 5 out of 10, serious but not immediately life threatening. He sat me and my wife down and discussed all the treatment options, from doing nothing to radiation to prostectomy (removal), and told us all the benefits and drawbacks (including possible penis shrinkage) for each option. I decided on removal, especially since he had a lot of experience using the robotic surgical machine called the DaVinci. The machine only required five small incisions in my abdomen to perform the surgery, and recovery time and side effects were usually minimal.

My surgery went well and I was up and walking within hours after the operation, and the urologist told me later the
cancer hadn't spread from the prostate, but was a more aggressive variety than he had first estimated. He said
the final pathology tests on it scored it a 7 out of 10; had we left it alone much longer it would have spread out
of the prostate into everything else.

NCSB:

Dad had prostate cancer, so I started getting tested in my mid 40's after he was diagnosed. Five months before my 50th, the PSA test came back positive. Biopsy the next month confirmed. Ugh. Prostate cancer is usually a slow growth compared to many other forms. But, at age 50, that's a long time to hope I outlive it, so I chose to have the bugger removed. Four years later, still cancer-free. Yeah, size deceased, but I can live with it.

I am glad you were able to get it early. My dad seen his GP every month, I would have thought the guy may have had a clue that something was going on, but we were blind sided. The doctors did not even offer a treatment plan, just a quality of life thing.
Ok, enough of my sad story.

I'm 54 years old and currently fighting prostate cancer, start out with prostate infections the doctors in Austin told me nothing to worry about take a pill go away. As it turns out it was a precursor to my cancer. DaVinci surgery last year in CA, but the cancer was outside my prostate, just finished radiation treatment at MD Anderson in Houston. If your cancer is outside the prostate (positive margin) there is no defined standard for treatment. Some wait till your PSA rises to an arbitrary number, others hit you with radiation right away, others hit you with radiation and hormone treatment. Hard to judge success with no standard procedure.

As to slow growing - sometimes but not always. Frank Zappa died in his early 50's and Gary Ormsby (top fuel driver) died in his late 40's.

Get checked, know your PSA, testosterone and vitamin D levels. If your doctor doesn't take your health seriously find one who does, this was my mistake there are a lot of quacks out there.

There's also a shared gene between prostate cancer and breast cancer. My mother died from breast cancer, her 2 sisters now have it and her grandmother had it.

BPA can also cause prostate cancer.

barron: Get checked, know your PSA, testosterone and vitamin D levels. If your doctor doesn't take your health seriously find one who does, this was my mistake there are a lot of quacks out there.


PSA is so useless as a diagnostic procedure that it is about to be abandoned. My urologist says it's a waste of money. PSA is too variable. It can go up just because you had sex in the last 24 hours, because you have a little infection, or because you haven't ejaculated in a few days. The problem with treating prostate cancer is that so little research has been done. Because the disease strikes older men more often than younger and because it is such a slow growing cancer, it isn't a priority. None of the current therapies is very effective on its own, so docs take a shotgun approach. The problem is that permanent remission is usually not the case without a radical prosatectomy. Both patients and docs are reluctant to use this procedure, since it is very difficult to perform without damage to the penile nerve bundles (= instant, permanent impotency). Luckily, the disease is highly treatable if caught early enough.

Men who have suffered chronic non-bacterial prostatitis (CNP) have a much higher incidence of cancer later in life. I had hypothesized that the cause of CNP is viral and the probable virus is HPV. It appears that my hypothesis was correct. Hopefully, HPV immunization for adolescent boys is going to catch on.
 
2013-01-03 09:39:05 AM
In America, there's a much more common cause of "shrinking penis" syndrome, it's the bulging bellies that many aging men sport.

That girth around the mid-section and the extra fat in the pelvic region drawfs the other girth, if ya know what I'm saying.

So keep your fingers crossed that you don't get prostate cancer and keep the extra weight off!
 
2013-01-03 09:48:24 AM
One PSA test doesn't mean anything. A history of increasing PSA scores though, tells your doctor something is going on. My doctor got suspicious when my PSA went from 4.0 to 5.0 in one year, and the prostate felt "lumpy" according to her when she did the digital test. She recommended a biopsy, which confirmed the presence of cancer in just less than half the dozen biopsies the urologist took.

My urologist agrees, btw, that the current standards for measuring whether a PSA is high or not are meaningless. Right now if your PSA is less than 4 most times the doctors pat you on your back and send you home. My urologist, OTOH, looks at any increase in PSA with suspicion, and any increase over 10% from the last test with alarm. He says the PSA test ought to be 0.0, since it's measuring the amount of antigen produced by your body in response to something going on inside your prostate. If your prostate is healthy and doing its thing, then the PSA should be 0.0. An infection, cancer or inflamed prostate causes the PSA to go up. He also said that a prostate cancer vaccine will be available in about 10 years or so, which will protect most men from getting it.

Glad to see others on the "get it checked" soapbox. I'm coming up on my 5 year anniversary of having my prostate removed, and I just turned 50. Pretty young for prostate cancer, but the (famous) ones you hear about dying as a result of P.C. in their 50's are the ones who went undiagnosed in ther 40's and it spread. Having known a few guys who suffered and died as a result of prostate cancer mestasasizing, the discomfort of a digital exam is minor, and my former Urologist had big, meaty fingers.
