Can a Swollen Prostate Cause Erectile Dysfunction?


Can ED be caused by a swollen prostate?


Research showed that men with enlarged prostate (BPH) were more likely to have erectile dysfunction. Also, Severe prostatitis can cause erectile dysfunction directly. Prostatitis is inflammation of the prostate gland and can be either acute (usually caused by a bacterial infection) or chronic. In milder forms, prostatitis can cause painful ejaculation, which can certainly interfere with sexual pleasure and may lead to erectile dysfunction.

Also, other types of prostate enlargement (particularly prostate cancer) and their treatments (surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation treatment) may be responsible for ED development.
