According to urologists, most of prostatitisinitially asymptomatic - that is, without causing any trouble. The most common first sign of inflammation and pain is localized in the perineum, the scrotum, abdomen, or walking on the inner thighs. The equivalent of the pain can be a feeling of discomfort.
In the absence of diagnosis and adequate treatmentinflammation of the prostate "lives" and evolves over time causing the appearance of new symptoms. The next violation will dysuria: urine stream becomes weaker, there is a sense of embarrassment, there are frequent urination (especially at night - this is called nocturia).
In many cases, doctors find a violationpotency varying degrees of severity - this contributes to chronic inflammation, which degrades the functional condition of the prostate (as this body by chance called "the factory of hormones").
Prostatitis can be shown and the appearance of blood in the semen (in 10% of cases).
Acute and chronic
Prostatitis can be acute and chronic - inDepending on the severity of the process. In classical medicine it is believed that first there is an acute process that in the absence of treatment (or ineffectiveness) becomes chronic. In reality, prostatitis often begins immediately with the chronic form - or rather can be seen on the stage of sluggish process.
Start of acute prostatitis is hard to miss: fever, worsening general health, and all this is accompanied by fever and pain in the perineum. The urine can be seen pus (greenish clots) and blood. (I do not need to write once again about the need to see a doctor if you find yourself listed symptoms.)
Chronic prostatitis occurs less pronounced -the temperature remains within the normal range, performance can suffer pain and discomfort in the perineum may become so weak that it does not motivate a man to see a doctor.
Infectious and aseptic
Infectious prostatitis cause variousmicroorganisms. In turn, infectious prostatitis may be caused by a microorganism, sexually transmitted diseases, and normal (normal flora) male body. In the first case of acute prostatitis pathogens are pathogens such as gonococcus, trichomonas, mycoplasma and others; in the second case of the disease pathogens are streptococci, a fungal infection, and others.
Initially, the infection enters the urinarythe way; prostate infection occurs through the bloodstream, lymph, and through the urinary tract. Anatomical and functional feature of the male body is that all bodies are close and inflammation in one organ other initiates infection. Therefore, diseases of the genitourinary system (cystitis, pyelonephritis) contribute to the development of prostatitis.
Aseptic prostatitis develop without the participationinfection, but the symptoms can be the same as in infectious prostatitis. Therefore, the diagnosis should contact the health center and get tested. No treatment results in a transition into chronic acute process, which greatly complicates further treatment.
Often it starts with neuroticstate when the health of the excess value given - man worries, fears, experiences. The emotional state leads to a dysregulation in the body, which disrupts blood circulation in the pelvic organs, causing blood stasis. At the same time develops an immune imbalance, which reduces the resistance to various inflammatory processes. Thus formed chronic prostatitis, which in 95% of cases are asymptomatic. However, eventually developing erectile dysfunction of various severity.
- Physical factors. Often prostatitis symptoms appear after a strong supercooling.
- Age - chronic processes more peculiar to the average age, acute at any age.
- The imbalance in the body: stress, hormonal changes, allergies, immunological disorders, poor circulation and nerve conduction.
- The presence of concomitant inflammatory diseases of the urogenital area.
What to do
If you find yourself in one or moreprostatitis symptoms, seek medical advice. It's not as scary as you might think - Modern diagnostic methods allow to safely assess the condition of the prostate gland. For example, the US will give accurate information about the consistency of the prostate, its size and condition. Blood and semen are also informed about the activity of the inflammatory process. Pap can detect the presence of flora, supporting the inflammatory process.
Depending on the type and stage of prostate, the physicianmay prescribe different medications - from antimicrobial to improve the functional state of the prostate gland; It refers to the last and Afala. This medicine reduces the severity of the inflammatory process, relieves pain and discomfort and normalizes urination. The undoubted advantage of the drug is that it, unlike many drugs does not reduce erectile function. Indirectly, the drug may even seize erectile function - at the expense of removing the inflammation process and improve the condition of the prostate.
