Symptoms of prostatitis

Men who have attained the age of 45 years need regular checkups at the doctor andrologist-urologist to carry out preventive measures.Unfortunately, most of the men in our country do not adhere to this rule.Disappointing result of this irresponsible attitude to their own health becomes the fact that half of our compatriots of reproductive age suffer from prostatitis.

The prostate gland, which is also called the prostate is part of the male reproductive system.Its main function is to develop a specific secretion of the supply sperm and protect them.During contraction of smooth muscle fibers and seminal vesicles prostate capsule into the urethra ejected semen.This process is called ejaculation (ejaculation).

shape, size and density of the body are especially individual, and with the age of the men undergo some changes.This gland is characterized by a fairly complicated nervous apparatus, so that even the appearance of small lesions can cause it not only local but also global disorder.

secret (sap) produced by the prostate gland consists of a dense liquid fraction, and includes hormones, fats, proteins and carbohydrates and electrolytes.Along with providing sperm iron transporting liquefied semen, thereby contributing, motility and viability.

Prostate - this is a very important body that not only actively participates general system of regulation of testosterone production, but also contributes to the functioning of the mechanism of erection.

Medics found that prostatitis occurs due to swelling or inflammation of the prostate tissue.The disease is the most common urological disease in male patients aged 20-50 years.Studies show that by this disease suffer one third of the stronger sex after 30 years, 40% - after forty, and half of men over 50 years.In old age, almost every man faces this problem.

To date this is the generally accepted classification of prostatitis:

most common factor causing chronic bacterial disease is the presence of Gram-negative pathogens, and, above all, Escherichia coli (escherichia coli).

major role in the occurrence of this disease belongs to history or currently existing sexually transmitted infections (STIs), which, involving the urethra in the pathological process, in most cases, also complicate the inflammatory processes in the prostate gland.Clinically significant STIs are chlamydia, ureaplasma, mycoplasma, herpes virus, cytomegalovirus, Trichomonas, gonococci, and the fungus Candida.Each of these agents (except urethra) can also be detected in the prostate tissue.

intrapelvic poor circulation, that is, the stagnation of the prostate, as a consequence of disturbances in her blood capillaries, it also leads to inflammation.That situation contributes to long-term abstinence, which is detrimental to the prostate gland.Another common reason for this stagnation is the sedentary lifestyle (working office employee, a driver).It is also harmful to practice the artificial prolongation of sexual intercourse or interrupted sexual intercourse.

First of all, patients with prostatitis various note associated with urination process violations.

symptoms, which cause narrowing of the lumen of the urethra, are:

symptoms caused by irritation of the nerve endings:

All these unpleasant moments are unquestionable signs of prostatitis.

In addition, patients reported pain in the groin, in the bottom of the waist, abdomen, or inner thighs, and often there are a variety of sexual disorders.

It should be noted that the painful symptoms and problems of urination may be symptoms of prostatitis is not only, but also enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia), which is characterized by the same symptoms.Unfortunately, in some cases, specialists diagnose prostate cancer disease, because of which recommend that all men over 45 to donate blood regularly to check for PSA (prostate-specific antigen).

In many cases of prostatitis symptoms similar to pressing urge to frequent urination, occur some time after prostate surgery.

Prostatitis - a very insidious disease.Most often, the development of the disease being hidden, because of which it gradually develops into a chronic form.The event of failure of attention to this problem slight malaise becomes a true nightmare.In the acute stage, the disease sometimes contributes to increase in body temperature up to 39 ° C, and perineal pain turn acts urination and defecation almost a feat.The formation of an abscess, that is purulent fusion prostate tissue, with all its consequences.

If there is no timely diagnosis and treatment of disease, then it is inevitable serious complications that create a lot of problems not only to man, but also his family.This disease threatens to erectile dysfunction and decreased libido.And the saddest consequence is the fact that approximately half of patients develop a certain type of infertility, because the prostate loses its ability to generating sufficient amounts of secretions required in providing transportation of male sperm.

That is why it is important to diagnose the disease at an early stage of its formation.A successful outcome of the treatment largely depends on this.

The urological examination to detect prostate following procedures should be included:
