Unfortunately, Ian and Steve, this link has been changed into a sales site for Men's Health publisher Rodale.  Do a search under "Men's Health" for "prostate" and it takes you to books for sale on the subject.  I guess money wins out over men's health.  (such a shame!)

MensHealth Reduce Risk Cancern 40%

I wonder if we in this group had known this back then, if we would be in the shape we are in today. It states to ejaculate 21 times a month. Do you think?

Everyone, I really would like to hear from each of you.

René, I have heard that frequent ejaculations are good for the prostate, whether they happen with another person or with yourself.  (And I have also heard that it is more important for a man if his brother has prostate cancer than his father.)  I am not a doctor; these are just things I have heard.

Elon, I know that some groups are advising against having PSAs done (like some groups are advising women against having mammograms done).  But when a PSA is done, followed up by the digital rectal exam, plus possibly biopsies and other tests -- meaning not just an "evil number" that means "Oh oh!  You've got it!" -- it is the best test we've got.  The key is catching the prostate cancer early.

 I had my 1st rectal & psa blood taken at 49. I had no symptoms, just wanted 2 get it done. I heard so many horror stories. My psa was .9, so I thought that all was ok. My doctor told me that he wanted me 2 have a biopsy. It took 2 weeks 2 read, but the result was cancer. I told him how could it be with a psa of .9, he said it was in the early stages. I took my prostate out and aside from psa check ups every 3 months 4 two years. No other treatment, thank G-d. To all my brothers take psa and rectal erxam early at 40 or earlier if runs in family. Be safe rather than sorry.

I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2000 and had a radical prostatectomy (the traditional surgery since robotic surgery and penile rehab were not out yet).  Life has changed, but life is still good.  Luckily I was able to have it discovered in an early stage, so I am a 15-year (and counting) cancer survivor.  :)

I am 32 had emergency brain surgery and spinal surgery this year. Went to the doctor today 12/23/2013, he did a prostate exam and thinks I have prostate cancer. Did blood work and urine tests. Now to follow up with a specialist this has been a whirl wind of a year.
