Benign prostatic hyperplasia - is now a very common disease, which is better known under the name of "adenoma of the prostate."Shorten it abbreviated as BPH.Ailment characterized by an increase in prostate volume due to the increase of its cells.This means that the adenoma - no swelling, as erroneously thought by some patients.And in order to know more about the disease, it is necessary to have information about her symptoms.
This disease statistics for urological occurs most often in men aged solid.For example, in 50 years, a quarter of all the representatives of a strong half of mankind has adenoma symptoms.And sixty-year men, this figure rises to 50%.
BPH worsens the quality of life, affecting sexual activity and overall health.The causes of benign prostatic hyperplasia much, and they have not been studied enough.But the provoking factors of this disease is a genetic predisposition to the disease, a sedentary lifestyle and work, constant stress, endocrine disorders, infectious diseases.
Symptoms of the disease are always characterized by the following symptoms:
worth noting that DGPZ - disease, which progresses slowly.So often in the early stages it develops without specific symptoms.It was only with the gradual growth of the prostate symptoms of BPH increases.
worth noting that hyperplasia characteristic undulating flow.Its symptoms can then be amplified, then the time to subside.Their increase can provoke:
Urination disorders at an adenoma is largely dependent on the direction of growth of the prostate and bladder condition.If you increase the average share of the prostate, the urinary disorder is expressed strongly.When growing adenoma rearwardly, toward rectum, the clinical disorders of bladder emptying process need not be.
urologist appoints the course of treatment the patient individually, depending on the stage of the disease, the degree of the patient's life quality violations.So, in the first stage, that is, with timely treatment to the doctor, conservative treatment can be applied.The second if conservative therapy has not given the effect can be made operative treatment.But the third stage of BPH - it is always surgery.
What does "conservative treatment" of prostate adenoma?This use of vegetable drugs that produce anti-inflammatory effects.However, these drugs are inferior to synthetic drugs.For example, alpha blockers relax the muscle of the urethra and the prostate area, which substantially improves the flow of urine.
Invasive BPH treatment is carried out in the event that conservative therapy did not produce a therapeutic effect.The category of minimally invasive therapies include: microwave hyperthermia, cryotherapy, balloon dilatation, ethanol injection, transurethral microwave therapy, a urethral stent installation, high-intensity ultrasound.
Nowadays in BPH therapy is increasingly used endoscopic treatments and laser.
