Does prostate enlargement affect erection?
While previously believed there was no relation, there is now evidence that men with LUTS (lower urinary tract symptoms) have a much higher incidence of ED (erectile dysfunction). In some patients the treatment of LUTS actually help erectile function as well. Both LUTS and ED need medical attention. They may be signals of severe illness that your doctor can help to diagnose. They affect quality of life that can be markedly improved in most cases with appropriate drug treatment. It is therefore important for you to see your doctor if you happen to have either of these conditions.
