The prostate gland is the most vulnerable organ in the male body. Prostate disease meet every third men aged 20 years. The hyperplasia of prostate and adenoma, leading to problems with erection are often the result of chronic prostatitis. That is why you should know the characteristic signs of chronic prostatitis and how to treat it.
Chronic prostatitis is long flowing in the prostate gland inflammatory process. The term combines several forms of the disease, manifested by similar clinical symptoms.
Categories of chronic prostatitis:
In 95% of cases are diagnosed a non-infectious chronic prostatitis. In this plan the development of inflammation out of the stagnant phenomena in the prostate — its secret, or of blood circulation in the veins.
The risk of disease increased with chronic prostatitis in humans:
Chronic prostatitis develops gradually, and for many years a cause for concern. Periodically a man can celebrate:
Stress, hypothermia, previous infection, leading to weakening of the immune system, and eating spicy foods/alcohol can cause exacerbation of chronic prostatitis. The intensity of disease increases and resembles acute inflammation.
With the development of the disease and the involvement in the pathological process of the nerves increasing erectile dysfunction, which significantly affects the psychological state of the patient.
However, chronic prostatitis may lead not only to a violation of potency — weak erection, lower sensation during orgasm or complete absence premature ejaculation.
Often the disease leads to the development of cystitis, pyelonephritis, and inflammation of the testicles, aggravating the course of the underlying pathology. In addition, significantly increases the risk of stone formation in the prostate, adenoma, or the appearance of a malignant tumor. In the long chronic prostatitis develops infertility.
Chronic prostatitis symptoms depend on the form of the disease and the stage of the disease (exacerbation or remission).
Chronic bacterial prostatitis
Signs of chronic prostatitis, caused by pathogenic microflora, occur periodically with varying intensity. During acute inflammation symptoms were most pronounced. Infectious, chronic flowing prostatitis is manifested:
Out of inflammation symptoms of chronic prostatitis erased. Patient complaints indicate more impaired urination, decreased sexual desire and erectile other disorders, causing a pronounced nervousness.
Non-infectious chronic prostatitis: chronic pelvic pain syndrome
The name itself indicates predominant in this type of chronic prostatitis symptom — pain. Due to the low intensity of the pain, chronic prostatitis non-infectious nature often ignored.
Over time the pain increasing slightly, and the clinical picture symptoms of sexual dysfunction caused by the progression of stagnation and decline in muscle tone of the pelvic floor and urinary sphincter.
Often the disease is completely asymptomatic. The diagnosis of chronic prostatitis is the detection of signs of inflammation of the prostate and hyperplasia during diagnostic studies. The urine sample can be periodically recorded leukocyturia.
In each case, the treatment of chronic prostatitis requires individual selection of therapeutic schemes. This takes into account the cause of disease (infection, stagnation of secretions or venous blood), duration of flow and the presence of aggravating the pathology.
Surgical treatment of prostatitis
Depending on the pathologic process of chronic prostatitis, apply a transurethral resection of the prostate (often replace open surgery), endoscopic drainage of formed cysts of the prostate, surgical correction of the seminal vesicles in violation of the outflow of secretions.
In advanced sclerosis is prostatectomy. Hyperplasia of prostate effective ablative methods, microwave thermotherapy and laser ablation.
Some doctors actively prescribe to patients with chronic prostatitis various methods of physical effects on the prostate. However, most of them have a number of contraindications and are assigned only in certain cases:
The prognosis of chronic prostatitis depends on the timely treatment of the patient for skilled care. As you can see, the symptoms and treatment of chronic prostatitis in men are closely linked — in the absence of hyperplastic changes in the gland and degeneration, provided a comprehensive treatment, it is possible to achieve lasting improvement.
This is important when you radically rethink your life: avoid provoking congestion factors, to get rid of harmful habits and proper nutrition.
