The issue of prostate trouble continues to be a taboo subject for a large number of men. Often, men confuse a healthy prostate gland with virility.
What man would dare admit to having a weakness in this area? Prostate trouble has even been called an “old man’s illness.” A man’s reluctance to have a doctor examine his prostate as a preventive measure—in a process that involves the doctor inserting a finger into the patient’s rectum—is also the reason that so many men act as though nothing were wrong. That’s why only about 40% of men who may be considered at risk seek treatment—with a majority preferring to remain silent.
When left untreated, prostate ailments make it increasingly impossible for the bladder to empty itself completely. Residual urine begins to accumulate, and bacteria, which thrive in this warm environment, quickly begin to multiply.
