prostate massage after being diagnosed with cancer

Hello -
I've just been diagnosed with prostate cancer, Gleason score of 3+3=6. The diagnosing physician and I will be meeting next week to discuss different treatment options.

Question for the forum - Due to prescribed psychotropic medications i take daily (paxil), I have great difficulty reaching orgasm. Attaining an erection is no problem, achieving orgasm is. In the past few years the only way I've been able to reach orgasm is by massaging my prostate which, although not guaranteed, normally allows me to have a satisfying ejaculation.

Is it dangerous to massage a prostate once the diagnosis of cancer has been confirmed? As of now the cancer has not metastasized. I fear that massaging my prostate any more may cause the cells to break apart, travel and begin to grow elsewhere.

Any good references and kind words are most appreciated.

Stay well -
