  1. Yes!

    If and when prostate problems are diagnosed, the treatment proposed is frequently radical surgical. This leaves the men with a vastly different hormone system which rarely gets managed. These men are almost forgotten about even though the surgery has disrupted one of their main joys of living….

    Non-surgical prostate care should be first choice! As these studies show, sometimes doing nothing will not greatly effect the life outcome, so why chop so eagerly?
