I can't seem to find an answer on Google, so I'll ask here. Hopefully somebody knows.
When having srs done, why not remove the prostate? All resources say that it remains, yet does not specify if there is an explicit reason for keeping it. Does it provide any benefit? It's not a vital organ, and the only side effect that would bother an mtf person is bladder incontinence.
If and when I get the surgery, I'd love to get rid of my prostate, as I don't want the embarrassment of having to get it examined for cancer.
