Detect Prostatitis in Its Earliest Stage

Taking care of your health needs to include every little detail of it. Especially when it comes to the health of such an important male organ as prostate. Surprisingly, many men are not only unaware of its location but also have a very vague understanding of its purpose.

<p>The <a href="https://www.webmd.com/men/prostate-enlargement-bph/what-is-the-prostate">prostate</a> is a small gland, the size of a walnut, that is very important for men&rsquo;s reproductive and general health. It is located under the bladder in the pelvic area. The prostate is responsible for the production of liquid that plays an important role in the formation of sperm. This tiny organ can bring huge problems caused by poor lifestyle choices.</p> <p><strong>Causes of Prostatitis </strong><br />Prostatitis is an inflammation of the prostate. In most cases, it is caused by blood stagnation in the pelvic organs. Constipation and digestive disorders increase the chances of having this condition. Among the most common causes of prostatitis are:</p> <ul> <li>Immune disorders</li> <li>Venereal or infectious diseases</li> <li>Poor blood circulation in the penile arteries</li> <li>Irregular intimate life</li> <li>Neuroendocrine disorders</li> </ul> <p><strong>Symptoms of Prostatitis</strong><br />The first warning sign you should pay attention to is the dysfunction of urination. An inflamed prostate increases in size and squeezes the urethra. If neglected, the disease causes bladder sclerosis and can even shut down the ureter completely.</p> <p>The second symptom is <a href="https://www.healthline.com/health/erectile-dysfunction">erectile dysfunction</a> that manifests through the weakening of erection and a faded feeling of orgasm. This condition leads to impotence and infertility. These two signs are the most serious ones but you should also be aware of noticing one or two of the following symptoms:</p> <ul> <li>The feeling of burning in urethra and perineum&nbsp;</li> <li>Discomfort while defecation</li> <li>Discharge from urethra while defecation</li> <li>&ldquo;Strings&rdquo; swimming in urine</li> <li>Night erections</li> <li>Speeded ejaculation</li> <li>Chronic fatigue</li> <li>Depression and anxiety</li> </ul> <p>These symptoms will not appear all at once. Don&rsquo;t wait until it gets worse. One or two of them is enough to suspect the early stage of prostatitis and make an appointment with the urologist. Don&rsquo;t waste your time because later it can be much more difficult to treat, and one specialist may not be enough.</p> <p><strong>Treatment of Prostatitis</strong><br />The treatment of this disease is a comprehensive therapy that includes:</p> <ul> <li>Boosting the immunity</li> <li>Antibiotic therapy against infections, if any are found</li> <li>Antibacterial therapy</li> <li>Physical therapy that may include massage, ultrasound, or laser therapy depending on the conditions</li> </ul> <p><strong>Can Prostatitis Be Prevented?</strong><br />Every man under the age of 40 should visit a<a href="https://www.centurymedicaldental.com/specialties/urologist/">urologist</a> once a year, after reaching this age &ndash; twice a year. Proper lifestyle corrections are very important for preventing prostatitis. Having enough physical activity, eating healthy food, and having a regular intimate life is the best you can do for your prostate to keep it healthy.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
