Prostate Cancer Treatment Affects Penile Length

Length of the penis is significantly reduced in patients who undergo radiation treatment along with hormone therapy for Prostate cancer.//

This has been found by a study conducted by Dr Ahmet Haliloglu at the University of Ankara in Turkey. Forty seven patients who were suffering from local or locally advanced prostate cancer were taken for this study.

These patients were studied over a period of 5 years when they were receiving three doses of leuprolide or goserelin injections once in three months. Then they were given radiation therapy.

Their penises were measured before and after the treatment. The length of the penis was shortened by almost forty percent of the original. They suffered from erectile dysfunction.

The study is the first of its kind to report changes in the length of the penis after treatment of prostate cancer. He also feels that the patients should be fully informed before initiating the study for prostate cancer.
