The majority of men who contact a urologist are suffering from various types of prostate disease.
Hormone changes over the years, especially changes in the levels of the male hormone testosterone, can lead to diseases such as chronic prostatitis, prostatic hyperplasia and prostate cancer.
As men age, due to the altered balance of sex hormones in the body, their prostate cells begin to multiply and this results in an enlargement of the prostate or benign prostatic hyperplasia.
As the prostate grows, it starts to compress the urethra, narrowing the ureter and making it harder for urine to flow out of the bladder. This results in the lower urinary tract symptoms caused by prostatic hyperplasia, i.e. abdominal pain, urinary hesitancy, weak urine flow, dribble after urination, the sensation of incomplete emptying, pain during urination and frequent night-time urination. Allowing the disease to progress without treatment or self-treatment can lead to serious complications (impaired kidney function, etc.).
According to the statistics, prostatitis troubles affect between 35 and 50 per cent of men during their lifetime. Unfortunately, prostatitis often remains undiagnosed and severely affects a man’s quality of life.
The different causes of prostatitis require different treatment regimes, which can only be accurately determined by a professional urologist.
The InnMed urologists urge patients to remember that prostatitis will not go away on its own and if left untreated, can develop into a chronic inflammation, which will be much more difficult to treat than early-stage prostatitis.
