What is inflammation of prostate gland and what treatment is used

This disease is the most common urologic disease among men from 20 to 50 years. At

current statistics, after reaching the age of 30, prostatitis in 30 percent of men. After 40 years – 40 percent. After 50, respectively 50%.

Is it possible to cure this disease? Of course – on the basis of the results of laboratory or clinical examination urologist-andrologist, working with the patient, will develop a comprehensive treatment program that will include a range of therapeutic interventions. Typically, comprehensive treatment program will include:

  1. Antiviral and antibacterial therapy
  2. Therapy drugs that are designed to improve the tone of blood vessels.
  3. Physiotherapy is also very widespread and popular (ultrasound, reflexology, treatment with leeches)
  4. Prostate massage
  5. Bracing means.

However, despite all of the above, Tactica the choice of treatment remains the main specialist. However, before we reveal the theme of the prostate – its treatment, symptoms further, it's time to figure out what:

The role of the prostate

The prostate is a part of the male reproductive system. It produces enough specific composition that is intended to nourish and protect the sperm. The smooth muscle fibers of the prostate capsule, cutting, produce emission of seminal fluid into the urethra. It is easy to guess that we are talking about ejaculation.

A little anatomy. Every man the prostate is a gland located beneath the bladder, covering the upper part of the urethra. Increasing in size (vespasiani), prostate gland disrupts the function of its function. We can not say that the density and the shape and size of the prostate is strictly individual for each patient – as men age they undergo a very significant transformation.

It is impossible not to note that cancer is quite a complicated nervous apparatus, even in the case of minor pathological transformations here can be caused not only local, but also General disorder.

What is the function of the prostate

More of school biology course each of us knows that the main function of the prostate is a secretory. The secret (or juice) that is produced by it, will consist of dense liquid and a fraction comprising carbohydrates, electrolytes, proteins and hormones and fats.

Not to mention that iron is not only to transport all of the sperm, but also further dilute the sperm, ensuring the viability and motility of sperm cells.

The prostate is the important organ that will participate in the systemregulation of testosterone production. Also prostate is designed to provide stable, normal functioning of the erection mechanisms.

A few words to note about the classification of prostatitis. So, there are:

  1. Asymptomatic inflammation.
  2. Acute prostatitis
  3. Bacterial chronic.
  4. Chronic pelvic pain inflammatory syndrome.


Disturbed function of urination that is somehow connected with the narrowing of the lumen of the urinary channel. However, this is only the General classification – in fact, the list of complaints from patients is much more extensive. So, we are talking about:

  1. Involuntary leakage of urine
  2. A weak stream

  3. Intermittent urination
  4. Urination only drop by drop
  5. Difficulty in beginning
  6. Incomplete emptying of the bladder.

What can happen in case of irritation of the nerve endings of the prostate?

  1. Frequent urination (especially at night)
  2. There are often urgent urination
  3. Is urinating only small portions.
  4. When the urge to urinate patient can not simply hold urine.

Sexual disorders – frequent "guest" of men with this problem. Periodically they have pain in the groin area, inner thighs or lower back.

It is important to remember

Will not be adequate erection frequently observed accelerated or premature ejaculation. Erased orgasm pain during ejaculation.

And infertility

Of course, the prostate has a significant impact on the viability of the sperm cells – the inflammatory process, in this case, easily can lead to infertility.

Not to mention a few words about the practice of developed countries where most men older than 45 years are required to undergo regular preventive examination by a urologist-andrologist.

For example, in Europe a study of prostate cancer – a very common phenomenon. Our fellow citizens prefer to adopt a diametrically opposed position to the doctor they will go only in that case when "the kiss impossibly".

So we get, eventually, enough of the sad statistics – the treatment of prostatitis is necessary 40-60 percent of men in the reproductive age. It appears that lakenesamovyte today is very important.


According to experts, one of the most treacherous to date, the disease is prostatitis. There are cases when a man develops the latent disease, gradually acquiring chronic.

So, if you do not pay attention to the time so it would seem at first glance, a slight indisposition, it will grow into a real nightmare for the patient. In the acute stage in humans, is observed quite a high temperature (from 38 to 39 degrees).

Pain arising in the perineum to make the process of defecation and urination in a real painful feat. Can easily be formed abscess (sweet disease that is a purulent fusion of tissues of a prostate). The consequences are rather grim.

A little more about the running form

So, in the advanced form, this problem can lead to very serious complications, which create a lot of problems not just one only man, but also his whole family. Not only a decrease in libido for prostatitis – similarly, there is a violation of erectile function.

Finally, the saddest thing is that 40 percent of patients who do not need treatment, will face one or the other form of infertility.

The fact is that the prostate is no longer able to handle a sufficient number of really high-quality secret (this is the material that provides sperm motility). Prostatitis is veryit is important to treat in the early stages of development it is from this largely will depend on how successful the treatment will be.

That includes urological examination

  1. Rectal finger examination
  2. Tests for infections that can be transmitted sexually.
  3. Special methods of examination of urological patients.
  4. Ultrasound – bladder, how much, transrectal ultrasound
  5. A blood test for a subject prostate biopsy and PSA
  6. General blood and urine.


Of course, first of all, you will need to go through the full range of measures listed above.

After receiving all the necessary results, the urologist is the treatment program. She, in turn, will include the full range of therapeutic interventions. Not to say that the development of prostatitis gives a lot of complications, in order to avoid them, you must act in several directions.

That is part of a comprehensive treatment program? This therapy drugs, antibakterialnuyu therapy, tonic and, of course, the prostate massage.


Whatever discomfort caused prostate massage, we can not say – this procedure is strictly necessary. For what reason?

  1. Diagnosis. The secret of the prostate gland is taken for the study
  2. The massage is performed in order to remove stagnation in the prostate gland.

Approach this surgery selectively, seriously, maximum meticulously. The next question is where does the prostate adenoma?


If about inflammation we have already talked previously, the causes must be understand in more detail.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH. As we said in the beginning of the article, this disease occurs in fifty percent of men older than 50 years. What causes tissue growth of a prostate? Experts shrug – up to the present time they are insufficiently clear. Not to say that BPH is frequently accompanied by inflammation.

In the absence of treatment, the prostatitis will get worse. The flow of urine more and more difficult. Also in the wall of the bladder deteriorating circulation. Over time the bladder wall does sklerosiruta. Most worryingly, perhaps, only that these changes are irreversible in principle.

Make a special list of complications of BPH. We are talking about:

  1. Acute urinary retention
  2. Stones in the bladder
  3. Chronic renal failure
  4. A urinary tract infection.

Today a variety of methods of examination givethe ability to estimate what specific violations prevail here and the extent of their distribution. It depends on the results of a survey of doctors (in consultation with the patient) decide what method of treatment to choose. It is possible that both medical and surgical treatment of BPH.

About viral prostatitis

Papillomaviruses viruses, cytomegalovirus, herpes that occur in humans, often are the cause of unpleasant in all respects, retriev. They only complicate the course of prostatitis and as a continuation of all this, of course, "the good pictures" can cause male infertility.

For example, those men that have no manifestations on the skin and mucous membranes of genital herpes virus is able to be identified only with laboratory diagnosis of sperm and prostate secretion.

Patient simply infect a sexual partner, which, in turn, will develop a pathology of the sperm. Infertility as a consequence. Quite often sick people with non-bacterial form of prostatitis, getting the most diverse, very massive antibiotic therapy – which, however, does not bring the expected effect.

For what reason? In fact, the cause of the disease can be a simple virus – and this requires, in turn, diametrically opposite tactics in treatment (immunotherapy, antiviral treatment).

Thus, hepatic prostatitis. If you focus on the opinions of different experts, today in most cases, prostatitis causes, or supports, the herpes simplex virus. Statistics are also disappointing – 22 percent of the cases. Usually, as practice shows, chronic prostatitis will differ persistently recurrent and very common in nature.

The massage

Commonly prostate massage holds a specialist proctologist. Not to say that the procedure is carried out only with the full bladder therefore before you begin the session, a large should drink the liquid.

After that, the patient is asked to lie on your side and bring your knees to your chin. The doctor, entering the anus finger in a special medical glove with a special analgesic applied from above, produces the massage.

Note that the massage is carried out the technique of stroking from the periphery of each lobe just to the center of the gland. Not to mention that when symptoms of genital herpes, as well as in infectious processes, as well as other infectious processes in the human body, the prostate massage is strictly contraindicated.

Finger prostate massage is based on mechanical excitation of nerve endings. Once the therapist enters the patient's anus a finger, he groped round education, which is located on the anterior wall of the rectum. Actually, it was this place called the prostate.

The doctor will assess the consistency, tenderness and size and density of the body. A few words about the technique of massage – rubbing, circular strokes. Prostate massage is carried out with a finger, and it will be given the location of the induction ducts of the gland. Procedure lasts less than a minute.
