Prostate Cancer Q & A

What is prostate cancer?

Prostate cancer is a common cancer among men in the United States, and it affects the prostate gland. Your prostate is a small walnut-shaped gland that produces semen. Early stages of prostate cancer may have no symptoms, but more advanced stages may cause:

  • Blood in semen
  • Discomfort in the pelvic region
  • Bone pain
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Decreases in the force of your urine stream
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)

It’s not entirely clear what causes prostate cancer, but your risk of developing it goes up if you’re obese or have a family history of prostate cancer. Prostate cancer risks increase with age as well.

Is erectile dysfunction associated with prostate cancer?

Erectile dysfunction can result from prostate cancer treatments, such as:

  • Prostate surgery
  • Radiation treatments
  • Hormone treatments

If you experience ED after prostate cancer treatment, you’re not doomed to suffer from it forever. The team at Male Method can help restore your erections so you can regain confidence in the bedroom.

What is the treatment for ED?

At The Male Method, the team uses various ED treatments to restore erections, such as:

Oral medications

Cialis, Viagra, and Levitra may be a first-line option for ED after undergoing prostate cancer treatment. These medications can provide a noninvasive way for men to achieve erections. However, if oral ED medications aren’t effective for you, the team offers other noninvasive treatments.

Penile intracorporeal injections

If Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra fail, and your testosterone levels are normal, the team at Male Method may recommend intracorporeal injections. They'll show you how to inject liquid medication using an auto applicator into the base of your penis to improve blood flow and achieve firm erections.

Extracorporeal shock

Another innovative, noninvasive way to treat ED after prostate cancer is called extracorporeal shock wave therapy. During this safe and effective procedure, the team uses a probe to apply sound wave technology to the penis. Doing so can improve blood flow to the penis and enhance erections.
