The subject of today's article is the Prostate gland, the prostate is one of the most important glands in a man's body. The Prostate is the gland that produces semen, the fluid medium that protects and nourishes the sperm cells. "All men will need to deal with this pesky gland eventually," statistics show that prostate cancer afflicts 1 in every 7 men in their lifetime. An overall study showed that more than 180,000 men should have developed this cancer in 2016, and of those men, 25,00 should have died from it. The prostate gland is not something to be taken lightly. The negative news about the prostate is that the older a man gets,the more likely he is to develop prostate cancer, but on the bright side, the chances of survival are actually pretty decent.
Even though most men are highly susceptible to developing prostate cancer, the rare few who don't find themselves dealing with BPH, or Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, also known as enlarged prostate. One of the main reasons an enlarged prostate is trouble, is almost entirely due to its location. The gland is located under the bladder and it is wrapped around the urethra, which makes it a difficult gland to take care of. As the prostate grows larger, it compresses the urethra, contracting the muscles, and partially blocks the exit.
By the time men reach age 55, half of them (male population) will have BPH, by age 65, that number is 75%, and by age 80, 90%. Statistically, if you are a man, you will almost certainly develop some symptoms of BPH as you age.
Causes & Effect:
One suspect for an enlarged prostate is testosterone, and another possible cause can be uninterrupted sitting at home, work, etc., for long periods of time. The constant pressure on the prostate gland could cause a slow growth in the prostate, or even the development of cancer. Stagnant fluids in the prostate can lead to swelling, infection and (if they are toxic enough) cancer. The symptoms that one should watch for are difficulty urinating, some dribbling afterwards, inability to completely empty the bladder, frequent nighttime urination, the possibility of blood in urine, and/or recurrent UTIs (urinary track infection).
Prevent Prostate Cancer:
There are many ways to prevent, or lower ones chances of prostate cancer, and BPH. The most common way to lower your risks is by massaging the prostate, also known as milking the prostate. Ejaculation is the most common way to empty or drain the prostate of its fluid, this can occur via sexual intercourse or any kind of masturbation. If you are having a regular healthy sex life, self prostate milking is not necessary, but, a normal healthy sex life is not as common as you may think. Self prostate milking is important in these situations.
It is suggested that men milk their prostate for two main reasons. The first is for medical purposes, and the second reason is for sexual stimulation.
FACT: The way to achieve the best male orgasm is through the prostate.
The sexual stimulation of a prostate massage is highly beneficial for men, since the level of orgasm is 10-folds higher and the duration's are much longer, it is often described as an intensely pleasurable orgasm.
Milking the Prostate:
- Start by washing your hands and the anal opening with soap and water.
- Once this is done, put a disposable glove on, then lubricate you index finger, and the anal opening or the sphincter muscles.
- Carefully insert your index finger, allowing the sphincter muscles to relax and accommodate your finger.
- Then begin to slowly curve your finger upward until you are a few inches in the anus.
- You should feel a knot (prostate gland).
- Once you feel the prostate, begin to carefully and gently stroke it.
- If there is pain, stop massaging immediately, there might be something wrong with your prostate.
- Proceed by stroking the prostate, with caution, if there is no pain.
- Once you are done, slowly, with caution, remove your finger and clean up.
Other than skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men, there are approximately 161,360 new cases of prostate cancer so far in the year of 2017, and about 26,730 deaths will come from this disease. About 1 man in 7 will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. The prostate gland is and will always be a pesky gland that needs caring for, so men get on it!
