Prostatitis Disease: Symptoms, Causes, and Treatment

What is the prostate?

It may develop in men of any age, be chronic or acute. There are problems in diagnosing, so patients often turn to a doctor when the prostate is dilapidated and traditional treatment does not help. 

The danger lies in the high probability of prostate cancer and total infertility. If the prostate is diagnosed on time, the treatment lasts only two weeks, after which the man will only have to follow the doctor’s recommendations and undergo periodic check-ups. In this case, there will be no complications after the prostate inflammation – the reproductive capacity is preserved in full even if the prostate is present with acute symptoms. 

Prostatitis does not develop «in an empty place», the cause of the start of the inflammatory process are the intestinal rod, mycoplasms, streptococcus, staphylococcus, trichomonas,s, and other microorganisms.

 Their peculiarity consists in very rapid reproduction and rapid destruction of prostate tissues. 

 Causes of  prostate disease

The main causes of the disease are considered to be: any inflammatory diseases of the urinary system – cystitis, pyelonephritis, urethritis; chronic stool disorders – in particular, Constipation where men need to push hard and prostatitis develop as an organ response to pressure; infections from remote sites – severe forms of angina, pneumonia, influenza, where prostatitis is directly linked to the penetration of the iron of infectious agents; Frequent hypothermia or, conversely, overheating may be associated with work habits; lack of a regular sex life, hyponymy – prostatitis causes a stalemate in prostate tissues, more often it causes prostatitis in men aged 40; Weakened immunity in the context of serious hormonal disorders; sexually transmitted infections – gonorrhea, trichomoniasis, chlamydia; frequent urinary delays – a large bladder exerts heavy pressure on the prostate gland; pelvic injuries. 

Prostatitis most often develops after penetration of the prostate tissue via the urinary canal, much less often through the bloodstream or lymphatic system. 

Prostatitis has one very important triggering factor – general loss of immunity if it happened as a response of the body to stress, constant fatigue, nervous exhaustion, emotional «surges».

 Men should have a regular sex life and their lifestyle should be made active. 

Otherwise, prostate tissues are stagnating secrets that are ideal breeding grounds for pathogenic microorganisms – prostatitis is developing rapidly. Inevitably, prostate cells experience oxygen starvation, which only increases the chances of prostatitis escaping the organ – inflammation will also affect the nearby organs.

 Men’s prostatitis species, with specific currents Depending on the cause of origin, differentiate between several prostatic species: bacterial prostatitis – begins with penetration of the prostate tissue of the infection, Diagnosis of this type of prostatitis is more common in young and old men; long-term prostatitis is caused by a lack of mobility, lack of regular sex in men and low pelvic injury Often accompanied by infection, prostatitis becomes a mixed-species; calculus prostatitis – develops as a consequence of the untreated chronic form of the disease, more common in older men.

 Prostatitis is divided into acute and chronic prostatitis according to its shape. Acute diagnosis is rare, treatment should only be performed in a hospital because prostatitis is present with pronounced symptoms. Chronic prostatitis differs from the «sluggish» clinical picture, periodic remissions, complete absence of specific symptoms, and rapid transformation into serious problems – the rebirth of healthy prostate cells into malignant cells, Stop secreting, reducing sperm secrets.

 Symptoms and diagnosis of prostate 

inflammation Symptoms are directly related to the type of prostatitis that begins to develop in prostate tissue: bacterial prostatitis – high body temperature, presence of blood or pus in the urine, urinary problems (thin and weak stream, «drip» outlet of urine), acute pain in the area of the crotch, bad general health; calculus prostatitis – weak erection or its complete absence, blood in urine, such symptoms of prostatitis are more often present in men 50 years and older; Stagnant prostatitis – discomfort sensations in the area of perineum and testicles, the partial or complete absence of erection, irregular urination. 

The prostatitis of the chronic form of the current differs from the «smeared» clinical picture, all symptoms are not affected and may disturb periodically. But if in men within 2-3 months there is a pain in the groin and testicles, the general body temperature increases, sex drive decreases, it means that you have to go to a doctor, confirm the diagnosis of «chronic prostatitis» and undergo treatment.

 The following nuances should be noted: The symptoms of prostatitis in men at age 50 are a weakening of the erection and a feeling of gravity in the groin, but pain syndrome may be absent altogether; Symptoms of prostate disease are always acute in men as young as 30, with urinary deficiency as the first sign: increased prostate compresses the bladder and men simply cannot go to the toilet; Symptoms of prostatitis in men aged 60 may be absent – prostatitis is often chronic at this age but may be of concern at the complete absence of erection.

Diagnose and treat

 Effective treatment will only be available after diagnosis – prostatitis often has symptoms of other diseases of the genitourinary system. Therefore, the patient’s complaints alone are not sufficient to diagnose: rectal examination; laboratory examination of prostate secrecy; testing for detection/denial of sexually transmitted infections; ultrasound prostate examination; autopsy. 

Ultrasound examinations of small pelvis organs and scrotum may be prescribed as additional examinations. It may be necessary to employ highly specialized personnel to rule out or confirm associated diseases. Treatment – general principles, duration of course Symptoms of prostatitis in a man and his treatment are directly related, because when prescribing therapy, the doctor must, first of all, relieve the general condition of the patient. Men often have severe pain, which means treatment must begin with painkillers.

 Rather than treat prostatitis, it is the urologist or andrologist who determines and most often the following drugs will be prescribed: non-steroidal anti-inflammatory and diuretics – prostatitis manifests itself as a urinary disorder; Spasmolytics and muscle relaxants – prostatitis is accompanied by pronounced pain syndrome in the groin; supporting prostate function and alpha-adrenal blockers. 

Is a lack of erection cured against prostatitis?

 Yes, in such complaints, the doctor prescribes specific drugs that improve the blood supply of the sexual organ and purify the prostate vessels of slags and toxins. If symptoms of prostatitis are found in men in their 40s, no additional drugs are needed to restore erection – once the inflammation process is suppressed, all sexual abilities will recover. On the other hand, if prostatitis in men aged 30 is caused by sexually transmitted diseases (sexually transmitted infections), additional treatment and infection will be needed to restore sexual activity.


 The best treatment is complex and therefore to eliminate prostatitis as quickly as possible, it is necessary to follow some recommendations of the doctor: in a day to consume at least 2 liters of liquid – prostatitis is characterized by stagnation of the secret and it will be necessary to remove it quickly from the tissues, To reduce the pressure on the organ and reduce its swelling; to maintain bed rest – treatment cannot be combined with physical exertion because it will irritate the organ, prostatitis will only progress, making treatment long and ineffective; To exclude sharp, sour, greasy dishes from the diet, alcohol is also an irritant at which prostate will only be aggravated.

 Once the signs of the disease are less pronounced, we’ll need to restore sexual activity. Prostatitis can be cured much more quickly by ensuring regular drainage of the prostate gland and by preventing even a slight stasis of the secret in its tissues. If drug treatment fails, prostatitis is chronic, and relapses frequently, then surgery is the solution. The operation can be of two types: transurethral resection – the surgeon removes prostate tissue that struck the prostate; prostatectomy – prostate is a real danger to the life of the man, so he is completely removed and his prostate, and seed bubbles with attached tissues.

 Surgery is not performed at a young age because it can lead to total infertility – prostatitis is treated with therapeutic methods, physiotherapeutic procedures can be prescribed in addition to medication.  How much prostatitis will be treated depends on the stage and form of the disease, the degree of neglect. It usually lasts two weeks, but it’s a very average number. You can treat a full prostate, you only need to get to a doctor on time. The treatment should be administered individually, folk methods will not help to control prostatitis, but it is possible to approximate the moment of the beginning of the development of complications.
