Can Prostate Milking Prevent Prostate Illness?
Many men during their lives will suffer from some kind of prostate disease. While prostate cancer is the most prominent of these, there are also less deadly diseases that can still have a massive impact on a man’s everyday life. Prostate milking is proven to have good preventative benefits for all of these diseases.
As we discussed in our article on prostate milking, there can be many health benefits from regularly massaging your prostate. These health benefits are the main reason many people choose to partake in prostate massage as opposed aiming for the higher levels of orgasm some men desire.
The benefits you can experience are varied, and can help with lots of different kinds of diseases or problems you might get in your prostate. This article aims to give you an overview of some of these, and an idea of how prostate milking might help with these problems.
You can still have some levels of the symptoms of prostate disorders without actually having any diseases, but it is important to have some knowledge of the things that might affect you later in life. Two of the most common prostate diseases aside from cancer, are prostatitis and benign prostatic hyperplasia (or BPH).
Prostatitis can be a little difficult to actually diagnose. This is because there are four distinct types of prostatitis, each with their own symptoms. These are Accute Bacterial Prostatitis, Chronic Bacterial Prostatitis, Chronic Prostatitis, and Asymptomatic Prostatitis.
Acute Bacterial Prostatitis is when there are bacteria built up in the tubes which connect your kidneys and bladder. Symptoms of this include difficulty urinating, muscle aches, high temperatures and chills.
Chronic Bacterial Prostatitis is also a bacterial infection. Symptoms of this include urgency when needing to urinate, painful ejaculation, or blood in your semen. Unlike acute bacterial prostatitis, the chronic variety can come and go over a long period of time, making you think it has been cured when the symptoms have temporarily receded.
Chronic Prostatitis is a non bacterial illness, and mainly just causes long term pain. This pain can be found anywhere around the lower part of the pelvis and can be caused by nerve damage, stress, or some kind of physical injury.
Asymptomatic Prostatitis is the most difficult to notice as it doesn’t have any specific symptoms, but if you don’t get it treated in time it can cause infertility. You can only diagnose this through blood tests, so it is important to see your doctor as soon as you feel any kind of pain or difference in your prostate.
BPH or Enlarged Prostate
BPH is a non-cancerous growth of the prostate. It usually only occurs in older men. The prostate will grow and continue to grow over several years, eventually reaching a size where it will begin to cause problems. The prostate growth will eventually block the flow of urine making urination both more difficult, and more frequent. If the prostate grows to the point that the flow is completely blocked, the kidneys will also be at risk of damage.
Both BPH and prostatits will usually be treated with a course of antibiotics or other medications. Which course you are given will usually be dependent on how severe your infections are, and if they have passed a certain point, you may need one of several kinds of surgery. As always, a doctor is the best person to discuss this with, so be sure to seek treatment any time you have worries about your prostate.
Other Prostate Problems
While most prostate disorders will fall into one of the two above categories, there are a few symptoms which prostate milking can help to alleviate, some of which aren’t always caused directly by prostate problems.
Painful ejaculation is usually a result of inflammation in and around the pelvic area, or an overly tight pelvic floor muscles. Clearing all of the fluids built up in the prostate gland can greatly reduce the feelings of inflammation you have. Milking your prostate can also help you gain a greater level of control of your pelvic floor muscles, helping to loosen them up and further reducing the pain you might feel during ejaculation.
While the benefits of this aren’t fully researched, prostatic massage has often been used as a treatment for erectile dysfunction. The cleansing of the prostatic ducts and general area around the prostate and penis help to increase blood flow to the entire area. The increase in blood flow can have benefits to erectile function, but this tends to be one you will have to try yourself as results can be varied.
Urinary Pain/Flow Problems
A lot of the time when there is difficulty with urination, it is due to inflammation or swelling in and around the prostate gland. By milking the prostate and reducing the amount of prostatic fluid stored in the area, any swelling can be reduced which can make urinating less painful. I wouldn’t use this as a cure all remedy, so be sure to consult your doctor if you experience pain or difficulty urinating, but prostate milking can help reduce the discomfort during any recovery periods.
Whichever pain or symptoms you are trying to reduce by milking your prostate, it is important to be careful and gentle. Putting too much pressure on stress or an already weakened prostate can cause even more damage and problems than you were already experiencing. If you feel like prostate milking can help you with any of your symptoms, but are a little apprehensive of doing it yourself, you can consult a medical professional and they will be able perform the procedure.
The key benefit of prostate milking is more prevention than cure. The earlier in your life you begin to regularly milk your prostate, the less likely you are to suffer from any of these symptoms or diseases. It is even thought to reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer later in life.
When you milk the prostate you clear out all the unneeded liquids, removing bacteria, increasing blood flow, and reducing any built up pressure on the gland. All of these things will help to reduce the pain or discomfort caused by any of these symptoms and help you maintain a healthy, happy prostate throughout your life. Just be sure not to do it too often, as you can cause your prostate to become exhausted which brings its own set of problems.
A Note on Prostate Cancer
If you are unfortunately suffering from prostate cancer, you should never under any circumstances try to milk your prostate. When you clear the fluids from your prostate, you encourage blood flow to and from the area. This blood movement can carry the cancer cells to other parts of your parts of your body.
Similarly any bacterial infections of the prostate are at risk of spreading in your blood, so if you are already suffering from any infections you should take extra care while milking. If you have any questions or worries about whether or not you should be milking your prostate, consult your doctor to clear it up.
Hopefully you’ll now have a bit of knowledge on the various kinds of symptoms and diseases that can affect your prostate.
