Okay here's my problem: I'm 36 years old, have polycystic kidney disease and a history of prostatitis (4 instances all mild). For the last three weeks I've been having prostatitis symptoms again (perineal pain, burning after urination, penile and testicular pain) Went to the urologist a week ago and found my prostate to be roughly 2.5 times normal size. Diagnosed with bph and prescribed proscar. My question is isn't it a little unlikely to have this kind of enlargement this soon? I've taken two doses of the proscar couldn't get an erection so I discontinued use. Doctor currently has me on antibiotics but all I want is relief. I refuse to be 36 and non-functional sexually. Are there any other options? I'm freaking out and very depressed. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

hi, i am 26 old , n seeing a dermatologist for d complaints of seborrhoeic dematitis n midway to the therapy i started having massive hair loss. Its a setback to have so thin hair. well for the treatment he has prescribed hair for u 2% solution , which i took for one month and now he has switched onto tb finasteride 5 mg OD n solution of Minokem HS, m also taking tb keraspur from past 7 months. though i have not started with the solution m really worried for the constant hair fall. though not recently investigated but till today, i got no history of thyroid disorder and anaemia as well. my past medical history says nothing much. M worried about the side effects of these medications and also want to get rid of my problem as soon as possible.
