For such a small gland, the walnut-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 2021 Annual Report on Prostate Diseases.
This newly updated report brings you everything you need to know about prostate disease. You’ll learn which screening and imaging procedures are the safest and most definitive. The Report brings context and clarity to today’s treatment options for prostate cancer, from medications and radiation to nerve-sparing surgery, hormonal therapy, and more. The Report explores the prostate problem that keeps many men up at night—benign prostatic enlargement, or BPH. And it explains how prostatitis—inflammation and infection of the prostate gland—can be eased and sustained relief achieved.
