In this episode we discuss erectile dysfunction in young men. Did you know that 1 in 4 men under the age of 40 experience erectile dysfunction. Are the erectile problems faced by these men different from the typical erectile dysfunction experienced by middle aged and older men? Is erectile dysfunction in young men caused by different underlying problems? Do these men need a different evaluation? Should they be offered different treatment options? In order to answer these questions, we turned to Dr. Nannan Thirumavalavan.
