E.D. is common, affecting as many as 1/2 of all men aged 40 and older. Though the condition itself is not considered dangerous, E.D. is associated with systematic vascular disease, heart conditions, renal failure, prostate cancer, depression, and other more serious conditions. Thus, experts generally recommend that men suffering from Erectile Dysfunction consult with a medical professional for treatment.
