Prostate cancer is the second most typical cancer in men following skin cancer. The American Cancer Society estimates that roughly one in every eight men will get prostate cancer. But the disease discriminates: it impacts non-Hispanic Black men disproportionately, especially among older ages. 

Men’s bladder or prostate-related disorders are a naturally occurring part of getting older. Some of these signs and symptoms include being incapable to begin or pause urinating, constant urination, an ongoing urge to pee, etc. These issues may manifest into prostate cancer if not looked at. Fortunately, BlackDoctor.Org is here for you to share six particular yoga poses that have shown effectiveness in preventing this dilemma. You can strengthen and improve your pelvic floor muscles through yoga techniques.

2. Mandukasana – Hop Into Frog Pose

Cover your right palm over your left palm while still in the Vajrasana position, keeping them both on either your belly button or navel. Without exerting too much force, gently squeeze your stomach in. Exhale and release out as you bend forward, keeping your eyes straight. Hold this stance for a bit while holding your breath. Breathe in at a slow rate, then reset your posture.
