prostatic abscess
occurs in dogs, often as a complication of benign prostatic hypertrophy and squamous metaplasia. Clinical signs are variable, sometimes resembling those of acute prostatitis with fever and systemic illness, or they can be similar to those of chronic prostatitis with straining, dysuria and hematuria.
benign prostatic hyperplasia
a diffuse glandular and stromal hyperplasia and hypertrophy of the prostate is commonly seen in dogs from middle age, increasing in frequency and degree with advancing age. Clinical effects are minimal or absent in the majority of dogs, but occasionally dysuria and constipation result. Infection can be a complication, causing an acute or chronic prostatitis.
prostatic calculi
occur uncommonly in dogs. May originate in the urinary tract, becoming lodged in the prostate, or form within prostatic tissue.
prostatic cyst
may occur in association with benign prostatic hyperplasia or as a separate entity, developing from vestiges of müllerian ducts.
prostatic fluid
secretion of the prostate; the third, sperm-free, fraction in a dog semen collection.
prostatic inflammation
prostatic massage
firm digital pressure and massage of the prostate, applied per rectum, may be performed to increase the amount of cellular material and secretions collected in a urine or prostatic wash sample.
prostatic neoplasms
adenocarcinomas occur infrequently in older dogs, invading locally and metastasizing to sublumbar lymph nodes and lumbar vertebrae.
prostatic wash
placement of a urinary catheter in the prostatic urethra and a flush followed by aspiration of fluid is used to obtain samples for culture and cytology in the diagnosis of prostatic disease.

Q. breating air that has tetrachloroethene in it how does it affect you if u have prostate cancer the air in my building has been determined to have Tetrachloroethylene in it i have just been diagnosed with prostate cancer

Q. What does treatment for prostate cancer consist of, and does it affect a male's ability to have sex? A very close friend of ours has been diagnosed with prostate cancer (it really *isn't* my partner or me!) and we were wondering what his treatment options might be. If the prostate gland is removed, does that eliminate the ability to have sex?

A. There is a new procedure called the da Vinci procedure that is minimally invasive and less likely to lead to the nerve damage that causes impotence. However, it is still a risk, as well as a risk of urinary incontinence. And even if you are not impotent, your orgasms will be dry - seminal fluid is produced by the prostate. There are also other procedures, such as implanting radioactive 'seeds' into the prostate. It is my understanding that the risk of impotence from that or any other radiation procedure is higher than da Vinci surgery, but less than with traditional surgery. Chemo and broader irradiation can be recommended in more advanced cases.
My brother had the daVinci procedure, and he is able to have sex.

Q. What foods or liquids, juices, proteins, fruits, are good for Male Prostate or Urinary Frequency? I am 53 YO Male with exessive urinary frequency. Is there a fruit, food, drink, pill, mojo, that would help me with this problem? I am talking about urinating 3 to 4 times every night, and or while watching TV, every hour or so. No pain, yet, an occacional after drip that is very anoying. Perhaps I have a prostate problem and should consuld with my Urologist. Yet, before I go there, does anyone know of something I can eat or drink to fix or aleviate this problem?

A. Thanks for the heads-up. One of my issues is that I LOVE coffee, thus, reducing my daily consumption of 2-3 cups could be a problem.
