With various treatments today, most prostate problems can be treated. Some treatments are invasive such as incorporating the removal of testes. This will affect your sexual life and can result in impotency. There is an alternative to revitalize your prostate health. Prostate massage or prostate milking has been practiced since ancient times for medical and sexual purposes. It works by stimulating the prostate gland by means of finger or devices. Based on anecdotal studies, those who suffer from prostate diseases do find relief from regular prostate massage. Lately, medical experts begin to recognize its health benefit and propose it as a treatment for chronic prostatitis, infertility, and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
Usually after a few massages, you will experience improved urination and less tension at the surrounding tissue. It releases retained prostatic fluid, improves the blood circulation to the prostate, and enhances your sexual drive. It also relieves the symptoms of chronic prostatitis. For enlarged prostate, it will revert to the original size. The tumor size may also reduce if you have prostate cancer. Prostate massage can keep your prostate healthy.
There are some precautions to take when you perform prostate massage. Some advocate violent prostate massage. According to medical professionals, this can be harmful and fatal. In some circumstances, depending on the severity of your prostate problem, it can lead to blood poisoning (septicaemia), spreading of cancer cells to other parts of the body, prostatic calculi (Fournier's gangrene), tearing of rectal membrane, and hemorrhoid outbreak. You may find it painful during the massage if you are suffering from prostatitis or inflammation of prostate. If you can not find any relief after three legendary massages, then most likely this kind of massage is not doing you any good.
Therefore, opt for a gentle prostate massage instead. Apply minimal pressure to prevent any damage to the sensitive soft tissues and nerves surrounding the prostate. Using finger instead of medical implements works better as you have better control with your finger. Of course, it is softer than those aids.
Prostate problems do not happen overnight. Regular prostate massage can prevent and reverse problems. It also helps to maintain the prostate health, heal the affected prostate, and improve your sexual pleasure. However, you should check with your doctor to clear any complication that may arise with the use of massage.
