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.

The results of present study demonstrate that chronic HFD feeding promotes accumulation of p53 expressing stromal cells, prostatic inflammation, proliferation of epithelial cells, and senescence-related changes in the prostate, supporting the emerging concept of the association between cellular senescence and late-life diseases.
On the other hand, several authors have also suggested that IL-17 possesses an important role in the perpetuation of prostatic inflammation. Penna et al., 2007, using NOD mice model of EAP showed an IL-17 decreased expression in prostate draining lymph node T cells after Elocalcitol treatment.
However, due to the retrospective nature of our study, we were unable to determine if the prostatic inflammation was the causative pathology leading to AUR or the consequence of catheterization.
In this study, we have found that advanced age (>70 years), a larger prostate (resected prostate volume [greater than or equal to]25 g) and the presence of prostatic inflammation were independent risk factors for the occurrence of AUR, whereas tPSA level was not.

Moreover, they found that IELT improvement was greater in patients with severe prostatic inflammation (70%) than in those with mild prostatic inflammation.
In conclusion, the high incidence of CP among PE patients, the increase in PE prevalence with long duration of CP symptoms, the decrease in IELT with severe prostatic inflammation and its improvement with antibiotic treatment suggest that CP may be an underlying cause in acquired PE patients.
