Impact of androgen deprivation therapy on sexual function: a response
How to Reduce the Risk of Prostate Cancer (with Pictures)
Prostate cancer is the single most common cancer in men. Unfortunately, however, proper prevention might mean denying yourself of things that you as a man enjoy take, for example, your red meats, your beers and your fried foods. Thankfully, AskMen has decided to keep prevention pleasant as we present four fun ways to help prevent prostate cancer. We are, however, attempting to encourage men to take measures to prevent the disease. How it works: The main ingredient in marinara sauce is tomato, and tomatoes are chock-full of lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that has been shown to reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer in men.
What to know about masturbation and testosterone
Traditionally, testosterone and estrogen have been considered to be male and female sex hormones, respectively. However, estradiol, the predominant form of estrogen, also plays a critical role in male sexual function. Estradiol in men is essential for modulating libido, erectile function, and spermatogenesis.
We appreciate the growing interest in sexual health for cancer patients and survivors. Mazzola and Mulhall's recent paper, 1 however, creates the impression that rewarding sex is not possible for prostate cancer patients on androgen deprivation therapy ADT. This impression, we believe, is not scientifically justified, and may be a disservice to prostate cancer patients and their partners in that it could act as a negative placebo, i. It was unfortunate that the authors did not use their paper to explore positive pathways for sexual interaction and arousal among ADT patients.
