What are the first signs of prostate problems?

The experts in the Montreal University have made an interesting statement. The scientists have proved that the more active the sexual life of a man is, the better his sexual health is. More than 3200 men at different age took part in the study, and 1500 mg has prostate diseases among them. It was found out during the study that a risk of the prostatitis development was reduced by 28%, and the prostate cancer was decreased by 14% during a higher frequency of the ejaculations. However, half of men in the study did not even suspect any disorders in the prostate because they did not pay attention to the primary symptoms.

The prostatic gland is an important part of the male sexual system: it produces a secretion providing the motion activity and a vitality of spermatozoa. A secretion contains enzymes, immunoglobulin, citric acid, vitamins, zinc ions, and others. It is important that male prostate health and prostate health maintain a healthy lifestyle.

The most common disease of the prostatic gland is its inflammation – prostatitis. Men at the age of 20-50 are usually exposed to it. The older the man is, the higher the risk of the disease incidence is. The prostatitis can be acute or chronic, it is rather difficult to diagnose it, and it may lead to stable prostatic gland dysfunctions.

If the symptoms of the prostatitis are neglected, there is a risk of a benign prostatic hyperplasia. It is a severe type of the inflammatory disease when the urine outflow disorder is observed. According to the statistics, just one out of three men can pay attention to the first symptoms of the prostatitis and go to a doctor. The rest of men go to a doctor only when the problems with the urine outflow begin.

It is rather easy to detect the first signals of prostatitis. If the night visits of the bathroom are a common thing for you, and desires to urinate are stronger than the amount of the discharged urine, it is time to see a doctor. The inflammation of the prostate causes frequent desires but the urine outflow is problematic. If you have to apply a force to urinate, pay attention to this symptom. Also, a man has a feeling of the full bladder after its emptying during the prostatitis.

In addition, the first symptoms of the problems with the prostatic gland include:

  • Erection disorder (every second man with the prostatitis suffers from the weak erection);
  • Sickness of the body;
  • Reduced discharge of the fluid during the ejaculation;
  • Rapid ejaculation.

All problems occur because the inflammation of the prostate causes a block of the small blood vessels and a reduction of lumen of the urinary tract. Also, due to these changes, the blood circulation is may be dropped in the pelvic area.

In case of the benign prostatic hyperplasia, the symptoms are more intensive because the frequent desires to urinate are accompanied by pain and burning during the urination. A dull pain do not pass within a long period and causes both physical, and psychological discomfort. The main signal determining the inflammatory processes in the prostate is a sharp pain in anus. It is acute but short.

The problems with the prostate can be acute and chronic. In case of the acute type of the prostatitis, the symptoms are intensive, and it is good because a man notices them at once. As to the chronic pathology, it is rather difficult to detect the first symptoms because the pain syndrome is not intensive and the diagnosis may be confused.

In case of the benign prostatic hyperplasia, the blood clots in the sperm or urine are a sign. They tell about the degenerative process that is happening within a long period, and so the mucous membrane is damaged.

An acute phase of the prostatitis and the benign prostatic hyperplasia is easily treated than the chronic one. Therefore doctors strictly recommend every man at the age of over 20 to take an ultrasound examination of the prostatic gland once a year and follow the first symptoms of the disease.

It has been recognized before that the problems with the prostatic gland start at the age of over 40. But now many young men face early symptoms of the prostatitis at the age of 20-25.
