ED is a common problem for men who have had prostate surgery. It can also be related to other health conditions, such as heart disease or diabetes.
What to Know About Erectile Dysfunction
ED is age related: Age is a risk factor for erectile dysfunction, but developing ED is not a natural part of aging. Sometimes ED can indicate blood flow problems related to diabetes and heart disease.
ED may be a side effect: Certain kinds of prostate cancer surgery can lead to ED.
ED is treatable: We can prescribe several medications for ED, and you have other options if medication does not work. However, it is important to know the underlying cause and talk with your doctor.
