A urologist reports that middle-aged men who suffer penis problems are often on the way to serious heart disease. He claims that any men suffering from erectile dysfunction problems should be assessed for cardiovascular disease. Hormonal changes, spinal cord injury, physical injury to the organ, surgery, depression, drug side effects and prostate cancer treatment may all cause erectile dysfunction problems.
