The Best Ways to Prevent and Treat Prostate Problems

For such a small gland, the golf-ball-sized prostate causes men a lot of trouble. Blame that on its location: the prostate sits at the junction of sexual and urinary function. Problems like prostate cancer, an enlarged prostate, or prostatitis can be hard to diagnose and treat. That’s why if you have one of these conditions, you need access to the best experts.

Let the doctors of Harvard Medical School guide you through one of the most personal health decisions you’ll ever face. They offer useful advice in the 2017 Annual Report on Prostate Diseases.

This newly updated report brings you everything you need to know about prostate disease. You’ll learn how to use your Gleason score to tell if your prostate cancer is likely to spread. The in-depth reviews will help you sort through the different treatment options for prostate cancer, from medications and supplements to surgery, radiation therapy, and more. The report also explores the prostate problem that keeps many men up at night — benign prostatic enlargement, or BPH. And it explains why prostatitis — inflammation and infection of the prostate gland — can be so difficult to treat.

You’ll discover everything you need to know, like:

  • Why a spike in prostate-specific antigen (PSA) doesn’t necessarily mean cancer, and why a “normal” level doesn’t mean you’re cancer-free 
  • Why experts now say if you don’t have symptoms, don’t get a PSA test 
  • How to lower your risk of BPH by 35%
  • Effective cancer treatment with the lowest risk of erectile dysfunction
