Prostatitis is the "scourge" of half of the human male population.The age of the disease decreases every year. A few decades ago, a sexual dysfunction was only diagnosed in men in adulthood. Nowadays, prostatitis is getting younger and younger, so even 20-year-old men are not immune to this disease.
Difference between prostatitis and prostate tumor u
What is the difference between prostatitis and prostate tumor? If in the first case we are talking about inflammation, then in the second - about the growing tumor process. In terms of clinical manifestations, chronic prostatitis is difficult to distinguish from adenomas, which is why it is not advisable to start the disease but to seek medical attention as soon as possible.
Types of Prostatitis
Several factors cause prostatitis:
- bacteria - pathogens of sexually transmitted and genital infections, Escherichia coli;
- bacteria - deformation of muscle tissue due to sedentary lifestyle and work, stress.
Acute and chronic prostatitis are disease forms that differ in their clinical picture and consequences.
Symptoms of the disease
One of the criteria to distinguish the disease is the age of the man. Prostate tumors practically do not occur in people under 45 years of age. Prostatitis is diagnosed at ages 15, 25, and 40.
Manifestations of prostatitis and adenomas
|pain||in acute form||in 2 or 3 stages|
|urination disorder||in acute form||continuity|
|sexual dysfunction||at the onset of the disease, increased libido, over time - erectile dysfunction||the waning of potency to impotence|
|PSA index, ng/ml||from 0 to 10||up to 16|
|ultrasound data||prostatitis||enlarged prostate|
Diagnosis and treatment of prostatitis
No need to guess and hope at random. Prostatitis can be detected quickly and almost painlessly. A man needs to pass urine and prostate secretions to culture bacteria, undergo ultrasound or TRUS.
Regardless of the type of prostatitis detected - bacterial or bacterial - antibiotics are prescribed: Amoxicillin, Ceftriaxone, Levofloxacin. This is not a universal set, the preparations are selected for their own indication and always in combination with a complex of drugs and procedures to relieve inflammatory symptoms and support immunity.
Diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer
If adenoma is suspected, in addition to standard studies, CT or MRI may be indicated. If the PSA test is poor, a biopsy will be done.
To treat prostate cancer, people use 2 groups of drugs: inhibiting tumor growth and supporting urination. You can try medicines that solve these two problems at the same time. Preparations "Palma creeper extract", "Prostate extract", as an independent remedy, are not effective.
To prevent prostatitis, follow a few simple rules:
- cold treatment;
- lead an active lifestyle;
- give up bad habits.
Regular sex is a great way to "get rid" of prostatitis and adenomas, but not a reason to forget about safety.
