Penis Size Reduced By Prostate Cancer Treatment

Filed under: Prostate Cancer Treatment

New research published in the January issue of the Journal of Urology says that men who receive both hormone therapy and radiation for advanced prostate cancer experience a significant reduction in penile length.

Just before treatment began, the average stretched penile length was 5.6 inches. Eighteen months later, the average penile length had shortened significantly to 3.4 inches.
