The Prostate, What You Don't Know Could Kill You

Written by Jeff Cuckson

Women know more about men's health than men do themselves and that's a fact. Why is that? Is it because we find it hard to discuss these things? Is it because it's not macho! Fromrepparttar time that we are young, we are taught that boys have to act tough and shouldn't cry. You must have heardrepparttar 146659 saying "Big Boys don't cry!"

Most of us carry this thought process into adulthood and feel by showing concern for our health, it will be seen as a male weakness. I am guilty of that myself.

I know when my prostate troubles began, I knew absolutely nothing aboutrepparttar 146660 prostate. I was one ofrepparttar 146661 96%. Mainly because it didn't cross my mind that I'd ever have any problems.

In addition,repparttar 146662 prostate is in a "private" area, and it wasn't something I wanted to examine. Many people, including myself, feel uncomfortable talking aboutrepparttar 146663 prostate, sincerepparttar 146664 gland plays a role in both sex and urination.

I have had prostate troubles, survived a cancer scare and watched my sister die from Cancer. Believe me, when I say that when you think you are going to die, it concentrates your mind on what is really important. Suddenly your priorities get focused.

Due to my prostate troubles, I became interested in learning aboutrepparttar 146665 prostate and how it affected my health.

I criedrepparttar 146666 day they took a biopsy and I cried with reliefrepparttar 146667 day I was told it was benign. I cried many times as I watched my sister die.

I got so frustrated having to get up every night 3-4 times due to my prostate troubles and then finding I couldn't get back to sleep.
