Enlarged Prostate
      #167231 - 12/17/05 07:41 PM

Another symptom - an enlarged prostate. How many of you guys out there have had this symptom? I felt a slight swelling situation around my anus, investigated, and felt a skin covered golfball inside. Jeez!!! I know the best advice is to see a doctor immediately. Since I can't get into the Infectious Disease Doc until Jan 6, I should go see the Family Doctor on Monday. I was hoping to get a little more education on HIV and of using my insurance over the next few weeks, but now I've got this even more immediate concern. Please offer some advice or experience. Thanks.

Nope not of i know, as i have said in my earlier response, i doubt the symptom/symptoms are related to HIV, if you feel worried get them evaluated from your health care provider.

I found a possible answer in the "Ask the Experts" section. On an Oct 26, 2000 response called "Hemorrhoids and HIV," Dr Feinberg responds to a question by saying --- "Hemorrhoids are common, period. However, it isn't wise to assume that a lump in the rectum is hemorrhoids. It could also be a wart or cancer. Please see your doctor for a definitive diagnosis." --- I'll be getting that looked at on Monday. Most of the prostate symptoms I saw on the web concern the urethra, even though the doctor checks the prostate thru the backside,

STop looking for symptoms and read up on risks. Once you have understanding on your risk go to the doctors of GU clinic. You will only make yourself worse mentally if you keep dwelling on it.
