The treatment that will shrink your penis
Prostate cancer almost certainly won't kill you -- but the treatment's another story. And if you undergo prostate cancer treatment yourself, you could face a potential side effect that many men might consider even worse than death.
It's the dreaded shrink. And yes, I mean a shrink "down there."
One new study finds that between 2.6 percent and 3.7 percent of men find they have a smaller penis after prostate cancer treatment, but the real numbers are certainly much higher.
None of the men in the study were actually asked about penis size, they actually volunteered it -- and how many men do you think would volunteer that kind of information?
I'm surprised anyone did at all!
Other studies have put the number closer to 70 percent. In other words, only a third of men DON'T experience shrinkage.
On the other hand, penis shrink is the least of your worries. And if some men don't notice the change in size, it's because they're dealing with much worse problems -- including a limp and leaky penis.
And for far too many men, this one-two punch of impotence and incontinence is lasting and even permanent.
But you don't have to put your manhood on the line to save your prostate. Most of these cancers are 100 percent harmless and need no treatment at all -- which is why even mainstream health officials have (slowly) come around to my way of thinking and no longer recommend screening.
And if you do need treatment, you've got much better options than drugs, surgery and radiation. Work with a naturopathic doc to find a treatment option right for you.
