any cycling seat Urination connection?

hi all,

i seem to recall reading in the past,
about groin area problems, with men
[prostate, infertility, etc]

is there any truth to this,
or is it a case by case thing --
effects some, but not others?

i seem to be Urinating more in the last 5 years,
and it coincides with my cycling more;
although i've also gotten older in the last 5 years!
and this could be an age related thing

=v= The stuff you saw in the media, and later in a bunch of
ads for newfangled saddles, was based on flawed research.

=v= Probably the main thing to worry about is proper fit to
the bike, and not having the saddle angled upwards.

How old are you? Sounds like it could be prostate. Quite normal for men ~ 50
yrs old.

54 yr old J.

Indeed. And prostate cancer is also quite common from that age on,
and the sooner it is diagnosed, the better the chances of complete
recovery. The OP should go and see his doctor.

No, when "big C" has your number, the sooner you deal with it, the better. A
great many people live full lives after having been diagnosed with cancer.
And a great number of aren't diagnosed in time, don't. There is no downside
to early detection. That's not to say you're better off being paranoid and
tested for everything under the sun. Just be sensible.

Yeah, but there's the rub. How does one determine what ache/pain needs MD
attention? My preference is, just be stoic. My mother was so stoic, she
almost died from acute appendicitis. She thought the pain would just go
away. The MD later said, she very nearly waited too long. That was after the
ambulance and the operation.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
When the pain goes away, that means the appendix has ruptured. Just after
your mother might have sighed with relief, she might have died. Good that
she gave in when she did.

My mother experienced back pain one night, so she decided to just stay in
bed and she'd "outlast it." Well, after 4 days of no eating and no drinking
fluids, she developed pneumonia and died in the hospital. The Pulmanologist
said, "The human body is not designed to just lie in bed for days at a time
without getting vertical at some point."

dumb, dumb, dumb. And, yeah, she almost died from acute appendicitis when I
was 8 years old. Same story as your mother....

She did not want to bother me with a phone call at work. So when I get home,
ready for Miller Time, I need to call 911, and then go to the hospital? Ma,
don't do me any more favors like this!

WTF? If you're over 45 and have problems with frequent urination or poor
urination go see a doctor *NOW!* Even if you're female it could be
Diabetes. Don't die of embarrassment! Geeze! It's not like the Doc
*likes" giving that exam ya know!

Hey, we are all going to die of something, at some point in time.

I do not fear death. I do fear pain.

Again WTF? Dude at work is 17 years my senior, can damn near out work me
and looks my age, and I look young for my years. He is a prostate cancer
survivor, he had treatment and was back at work *the same day!*
You think dying of cancer isn't painful??!!!

If you think you might have it, *GET the checkup!*

I don't have symptoms, but I'm getting into that age bracket, next time
I'm in to see the Doc, I'll ask for it.

Please! Don't be a cerebral wimp.

My ancestors, on the great plains on North Dakota, would sneer at your wimpy
concerns. Life is totally indifferent to human pain. One is born, one
flowers, one ages, and then one dies. It is that simple. Just plant a
flower, and watch what happens. It is just like that, FOR US HUMANS. Humans
are not superior to flowers!

Please try to keep up.

A slight over-simplification. In general, if you're over 45 and find you
can't put out fires with your hose anymore, that's fairly normal. But it's
certainly easy to get a PSA test to get a better idea if you've got
something to worry about or not (although a PSA test is by no means
conclusive). It's a simple blood test, nothing invasive or threatening
(providing you're not a wimp like me, who fears blood being drawn more than
most would believe, and yet I still had it done).
