5 Ways to Take Care of Penis Health

  • Clean up: The best way to care for penis health is that your penis should be cleaned daily. So should your bottom and the area in between, called the perineum. Use mild soap as these areas can be sensitive.
  • Examine Penis Yourself: It is not just women who need to get their breast check to prevent cancer. Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young men. To identify and prevent penis health problems. For this reason, every week you should examine each testis (the plural is testes) in turn between your finger and thumb by rolling the skin over them. The most common symptom is a lump of any size but you should book an appointment with your doctor if you have any new feelings in the scrotal area.
  • Erection problems: erectile dysfunction, or impotence, is, unfortunately, common from middle age onwards and it's caused by a narrowing of the blood vessels that pump blood to create and maintain an erection. This narrowing may occur for a number of reasons but high blood pressure, diabetes, and smoking are high on the list. Giving up smoking seems like a no-brainer, and maintaining healthy body weight and undertaking regular exercise reduces your risk of developing high blood pressure and diabetes.
  • Protect from sits: The best way to prevent sexual diseases and take care for penis health in terms of hygiene as sexually transmitted infections are invisible and often give no symptoms for many years so you won't know if you've just passed one on, so you should always wear a condom. They significantly reduce the risk of the transmission of STIs.
  • Make good use of your penis: To keep your penis healthy & strong, make the ejaculation part of your daily routine. Here's why: a large Harvard study of nearly 30, 000 men found the risk of prostate cancer was 33 percent lower in men who'd ejaculated at least 21 times per month, compared to those who ejaculated only 4-7 times per month. This included ejaculations during sex, masturbation and, um, 'nocturnal emissions'
