Penile Exercise after Prostate Cancer


Penile exercise may also be referred to masturbation. After prostate cancer treatment, a man may experience penile shrinkage or a hardening or stiffening of the arteries that produce the blood flow which causes erection. Prostatectomy may result in a shortening of the penis while radiation therapy may stiffen the arteries. Penile exercises keep the penis lengthened and malleable. Also the experience of erections decreases the occurrence of impotence after prostate cancer treatment.
