Harms of Prostatitis More than Pain and Urination Problems

Date:2022-08-23 click:0
Although prostatitis is not a direct life-threatening disease, it seriously affects patients' quality of life. The clinical manifestations of prostatitis are diverse, and there may be pain and discomfort in the perineum, suprapubic area, groin area, and genitals. Urethral symptoms include a burning sensation during urination, urgent and frequent urination, and pain during urination, which may be accompanied by terminal hematuria or purulent urethra.

Prostate inflammation can not only cause the above-mentioned local discomfort symptoms, but more importantly, it can also cause systemic symptoms of discomfort and even cause malignant diseases such as uremia and tumors. In this regard, male patients often know very little about it. In short, the harm of prostatitis to the human body is multi-faceted and varies with the duration of the disease and severity.
The Harm of Prostatitis
1. Affect work and life. Due to the stimulation of inflammation, a series of symptoms occur, such as pain in the lumbosacral, perineum, testis, and other parts, endless urination, and frequent urination at night, making the patient restless and affecting work and life.
2. Lead to chronic nephritis and even uremia. If prostatitis is not treated in time, it can lead to prostatic hyperplasia, which can oppress the bladder outlet so that men can not empty the urine, and residual urine will appear. Residual urine can easily lead to bacterial growth, leading to urinary tract infections such as pyelonephritis.
3. Cause endocrine disorders and cause mental disorders. Under normal circumstances, the prostate can secrete a variety of active substances. The infection and inflammation will cause the weakening of the male nervous system and endocrine disorders, resulting in mental abnormalities. Symptoms such as insomnia, fatigue, dizziness, slow thinking, and memory loss may also occur.
4. Affect exual function. Prostatitis may lead to impotence and premature ejaculation. Due to the aggravated symptoms and discomfort after sexual intercourse, patients will gradually develop a sense of disgust, leading to impotence, premature ejaculation, etc.
5. Affect fertility. Long-term chronic inflammation changes the composition of prostatic fluid and affects the secretory function of the prostate, which in turn affects the liquefaction time of semen, and reduces sperm motility, which can lead to male infertility.
6. Cause infection in other parts. The human prostate contains an antibacterial substance called a prostate antibacterial factor. When the prostate is inflamed, this antibacterial factor is reduced, leading to an inflammatory infection. Infection caused by prostatitis can lead to acute urinary retention, acute seminal vesiculitis or epididymitis, vas deferens, swollen or tender spermatic lymph nodes, etc. In severe cases, groin pain or renal colic may occur.
7. Gynecological inflammation caused by infecting spouse. Most patients with prostatitis are not contagious. But some prostatitis is caused by a special bacterial infection, and the inflammation can be transmitted to the wife through sexual intercourse. The cases include fungal prostatitis, trichomoniasis prostatitis, gonorrhea prostatitis, non-gonococcal (chlamydia, mycoplasma) prostatitis, etc.
Traditional Chinese medicine(TCM) believes that prostatitis has two causes. The first one is heat toxin, and most patients with this type have small abscesses in the prostate. The second is Liver Qi stagnation. Most patients with this type often feel depressed. For both types of patients, herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill can be selected for treatment. It is made of pure herbs, which can promote blood circulation, remove blood stasis, clear heat and detoxify, and help patients heal prostatitis while nourishing their bodies.
