Title: Male organ pain Due to Seminal Vesicle Stones: How Common Is It?

Male organ pain Due to Seminal Vesicle Stones
How Common Is It?
By John Dugan
  • Kidney stones most people know about, but stones
    can also develop in other parts of the body. Sad
    to report, one of the areas where they can
    potentially develop are in the seminal vesicles.
    Although such cases are (fortunately) extremely
    rare, its important for men to know about them
    in the event that they find their male organ
    health impacted by their unwanted presence.
What are they?
  • The seminal vesicles (also known as seminal
    glands or vesicular glands), are a pair of tubes
    located in the pelvis which are located just
    beneath the bladder. Although small, they play a
    big role, providing between 70 and 85 of the
    reproductive fluid.
  • Each of the vesicles is about 2 to 2.75 inches
    long and about half that in width. They are
    managed by hormones, especially androgen. Without
    androgen, the vesicles would basically just
    wither away.
  • Also called seminal vesicle calculi, seminal
    vesicle stones were first reported in the medical
    literature in 1928. But there havent been many
    cases reported only about 100 or so over the
    succeeding decades, mostly occurring in men
    between the ages of 30 and 45. That doesnt mean
    there havent been more cases out there (or that
    younger and older men are exempt from them) it
    only means more havent been reported to medical
    journals. And there may be many cases that men
    dont even report to their doctors. But even
    taking that into consideration, seminal vesicles
    stones are not likely to be common.
  • What are these stones formed of? These smooth,
    hard stones are usually formed of various
    proteins (which may occur naturally in the
    seminal vesicles). Sometimes phosphate or calcium
    may be the culprit. Because the seminal vesicles
    themselves are small, any stones that form there
    are likely to also be small. The larger the
    stone, the more pain it is likely to cause.
  • In most cases, men with seminal vesicle stones
    have experienced passing stones while coming.
    This is often accompanied by pain during the
    passing (and often prior to the passing) as well
    as by evidence of blood in the emission. Often, a
    man with these stones may also experience a need
    to urinate with greater frequency than in the
  • The degree of pain associated with these stones
    can vary significantly. Some men have live with
    them for years before visiting a doctor,
    indicating a general low level of pain with some
    unpleasant peaks which motivated seeking help.
  • In cases in which the stones create significant
    blockage of seminal fluid, infertility may
    result. (This is usually reversed if the blockage
    is removed.)
  • Many cases of seminal vesicle stones are
    transient and resolve in a short period of time.
    When they are long lasting or severe enough to
    warrant medical attention, some form of surgical
    intervention is often required. This can be
    invasive, due to the small size of the vesicles
    themselves and their location in a crowded
    section of the anatomy.
  • Seminal vesicle stones are not an issue that
    needs to concern most men who instead should
    concentrate on maintaining a productive male
    organ health regimen. Part of this regimen should
    include the daily application of a first rate
    male organ health creme (health professionals
    recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically
    proven mild and safe for skin). The best cremes
    will contain two key ingredients L-arginine and
    L-carnitine. L-arginine is a wonderful amino acid
    which helps boost the bodys production of nitric
    oxide, thereby better enabling the blood vessels
    to receive increased blood flow. L-carnitine has
    neuroprotective properties, and these can be
    helpful in maintaining adequate sensitivity in
    instances in which the member has been roughly or
    aggressively handled.
