It surprises a lot of people suffering from prostate problems to find out their pain has nothing to do with the gland whatsoever. And, it also surprises others who think they have a venereal disease only to find out there’s a prostate issue going on.
That might sound amusing to some people.
But it’s actually pretty serious.
Not only for diagnosing the right condition (so you can get the right treatment if you have prostate problems).
But also for saving your marriage!
Here’s what I mean:
A while back there was a guy who was suffering from what he thought was a venereal disease. He was even told this by a doctor and was so convinced he had the disease he figured his wife was actually cheating on him.
After dropping close to a hundred dollars on medicine specifically for treating gonorrhea and syphilis, his condition saw no improvement whatsoever.
In fact, it even started getting worse!
So he did what any half way intelligent guy would do… and got a second opinion (this time from a doctor that knew what he was doing.) And the first thing this doctor did was check his prostate.
And sure enough, they found out he didn’t have VD, he had prostatitis.
Yes, the two diseases DO have similar symptoms.
And that’s why you have to always remember these two things:
One, never only accept a first opinion from a doctor (as obviously not all are exactly on the ball).
And two, if you have any symptoms of prostate problems, make sure you get tested for that (even if you think it’s VD or something else). It’s the only way to be sure. And it can save you a lot of time and money (and maybe even your marriage).
