Ask Dr. K
ENLARGED PROSTATE

QUESTION
After having anal sex recently, my prostate became enlarged. Is there a treatment that can reduce the prostate to its normal size or prevent an enlarged prostate? Thanks.

ANSWER
Causes of enlarged prostate are prostatitis (infection), prostate trauma with hemorrhage (rare), benign prostatic hypertrophy (common in older men age > 50), and prostate cancer (rare and more common in men age > 50). Only a doctor can make a proper diagnosis after examining you in person.

Bottom line -- see your doctor.

To your health,
Dr. K
