Prostate problem detection.
It is important to detect prostate problems as early as possible.
When symptoms are experienced, action should be taken before it progresses to the stage when drugs are required to suppress symptoms.
There are many supplements available which could be tried in the early stages.
Prostatic trouble is often due to inflammation of the prostate gland. The enlarged prostate leads to the disturbance of the normal urinary flow, kidneys troubles, and, generally upsets the entire urinary system. Infectionis usually by the way of urethra.
Following are the more common types of prostatis.
Acute bacterial prostatis:
Bacteria, fungi and viruses may invade the prostate gland. A proper treatment is possible, if the patient is capable of describing the symptoms properly. As the antibiotic drugs do not get into the prostate gland easily, a complete course of antibiotic therapy should be given. Incomplete therapy may lead to drug resistence, and the acute bacterial prostatitis may become chronic.
Chronic bacterial prostatis:
The chronic bacterial prostatis is most common in aged males of 60 years and above. It may or may not come with painful urination, frequent urination and a recurrent urinary infection. Basic treatment involves antibiotic therapy for a longer time as per the advise of a physician.
It is a common type of prostatitis, which exhibits inflammed prostate, but with no bacteria either in the urine or in the prostatic fluid. Frequent urination, especially at night, is the usual symptom. Though its exact cause is not known, some researchers are of opinion that there are some micro-organisms viz., Chlamydia, mycoplasma, fungi, or viruses may be responsible.
It affects thousands of young to middle aged men. The patients reports pain inside the penis, testicles, or groin, and inability to start or stop urinating. Foreign organisms are not considered responsible to cause the disease. Some physicians believe that Zinc deficiency may be the cause of the disease.
In BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia), the prostatic gland grows to more muscular structure, resulting in a narrowing of the urethra. Slow or less-forceful urine stream is the symptom. There are different types blood tests to diagnose BPH, viz, PSA (prostate specifc antigen) test, serum creatine test, and urine analysis to rule out other possibilities of infection.
Microwave therapy, laser prostatectomy, prostatic stents, transurethral resection of the prostate, and open prostatectomy are the measures, effering reliable reliefs and improvements in the symptoms.
Cancer, in most cases, starts out as a perfectly normal cell, and slowly destroys the defensive mechanism of the victim, by stealing the resources to grow and multiply. These cells live and grow as disorganised mass, giving rise to a tumor. The tumor starts growing aggressively. Once a cancer cell gets entry in the blood stream, it can be carried far and wide throughout the body. It then excavates a hole into the tissue and burrows in.
Prostate cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer today, but is the slowest growing cancer in men. It grows in the posterior portion of the prostate gland.
A digital rectal examination is the easiest method of detecting prostatic cancer. Twenty percent of males in their fifties exhibit micriscopic evidence of prostatic cancer. Higher the testosterone secretion in males, greater will be the possibility of prostatic cancer growth.
Weakening of the urine stream with difficulties, nagging low back pain, constipation, and regular weight loss are the common symptoms of prostatic cancer cases. Researchers have found that five or more meals with red-meat a week may advance the chances of prostatic cancer. Smoking habits increase the chances of development of prostatic cancer.
