Unraveling the Prostate Paradox: The Aging Man’s Enigma


It’s one of medicine’s most intriguing puzzles – as men age, their testosterone levels drop, but oddly, their prostate, an organ that relies on testosterone to grow, expands. This seemingly paradoxical phenomenon isn’t just a fascinating puzzle for scientists to solve. It has real-life implications for millions of men who suffer from an enlarged prostate, or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a common condition with age.

This blog post delves into this curious paradox, its underlying mechanisms, and what the latest research reveals about potential treatment approaches. We’ll journey deep inside the prostate’s inner workings, unravel the unexpected role of varicocele (a condition affecting the veins in the testicles), and explore the groundbreaking Gat Goren method. Plus, we’ll discuss two minimally invasive procedures – Prostatic Artery Embolization (PAE) and Varicocele Sclerotherapy – and examine the possibility of combining them to combat BPH more effectively. So, solutions are already available to help you reclaim your quality of life. Take your time, weigh your options, and make an informed decision if you’re wrestling with bothersome BPH symptoms. Let’s take the first step together, shall we?

The Larger Your Prostate, the Less Your Chance of Getting Prostate Cancer

  • by


Until recently, the relationship betweenbenign prostate hyperplasia(BPH) and prostate cancer (PC) remained controversial. Some studies have found such a relationship, while others, on the contrary, could not find any association between them. Therefore, the idea of the independence of these prostate conditions has been propagated to reduce the fear of most people suffering from BPH symptoms of a possible escalation into PC. The larger your prostate, the less your chance of getting prostate cancer – this is the main conclusion of the recent study by K. R. Nandalur et al.(2021).

The results of a recent study published in “The Prostate” not only resolve these inconsistencies but, most importantly, confirm a significant inverse relationship between prostate size and the risk of PC. In the post, we will discuss this study, the results of which others will hopefully confirm.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia: comparison of different ways of treatment

  • by


Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or prostate enlargement develops in men over the age of 40 and may cause lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). In Europe, 30% (26 million men) and in the USA, 8 million men over 50 years of age are affected by LUTS. Besides LUTS, BPH can cause serious health issues too: acute urinary retention, bladder stones, urinary tract infection, hematuria, renal insufficiency, and upper urinary tract atrophy.

Any website of the medical clinique is trying to emphasize the benefits of the techniques available at this clinique, often downplaying the negative aspects of the procedure. Therefore, distributing the advantages and side effects of different ways of BPH treatments using clinical study results may play an important role in decision-making between patients and their healthcare providers.

Does Saw Palmetto work in treating enlarged prostate symptoms?


Saw Palmetto is a dwarf palm tree (Serenoa repens) found in the southern states of the United States. It has been used for centuries for medicinal purposes in Indian countries and is now frequently used by men to treat enlarged prostate symptoms. Some men will claim that it cured them, while others see no benefit. With a supplement market full of inaccurate and exaggerated claims, how is anyone supposed to know what works and what doesn’t? The research-based evidence is the only way to know does Saw Palmetto work in treating enlarged prostate symptoms or if all its popularity is just made-up marketing.

Natural treatment of enlarged prostate and prostatitis


Reading wonderful books by a great Romanian phytotherapist Prof. Ovidiu Bojor, inspired me (about me) to write this post on the natural treatment of enlarged prostate and prostatitis. Prof. Ovidiu Bojor – the father of modern Romanian phytotherapy, has put all his energy into discovering the best recipes that could make our life more beautiful, longer, and healthier. This man, who climbed the Himalayas four times, in his 95 still working 8-10 hours a day, always resilient, better than anything else, is demonstrating on the example of his life that living in harmony with nature is the best way to healthy living.

The Mechanism of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: An Insight into a Paradoxical Condition

  • by


The question that arises is why we need to understand the mechanism of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The answer lies in the significance of the mechanism itself – it is the driving force behind everything. If we fail to identify the mechanism of a disease, we can liken ourselves to blind warriors attempting to fight an unseen enemy. We may observe the condition’s symptoms, but our actions are somewhat misguided without understanding the causative process.

In this article, I aim to delve into the mechanism of BPH, first proposed a decade ago by Israeli scientists and corroborated by numerous clinical studies since then.
