Cystitis Glandular and Male Disease: Is There a Link Between the Two?

Date:2023-11-10 click:0

Cystitis glandularis is a relatively rare urological disorder in which women suffer more, and men are generally less likely to get it, which is because the male urethra is relatively long and curved and has strong defenses against infection. But there are still related cases. 


So, can male diseases cause cystitis glandularis?

What we often refer to as male diseases usually include these:

1. Inflammatory diseases of the male reproductive system, such as prostatitis, orchitis, epididymitis, and seminal vesiculitis.

2. Male urinary system inflammation, such as urethritis, cystitis, etc.

3. Male sexual dysfunction, such as erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, non-ejaculation, abnormal erection, etc.

4. Male sexually transmitted diseases, such as gonorrhea, syphilis, and genital herpes.

5. Male congenital diseases, such as redundant prepuce, phimosis, cryptorchidism, male gonadal development abnormality, etc.

6. Other diseases, such as varicocele, testicular hydroceles, male infertility, etc., are common diseases in male medicine.

Cystitis glandularis is a kind of chronic cystitis; if men have cystitis untreated for a long time, under the stimulation of long-term inflammation, it can lead to cystitis glandularis. In addition to chronic cystitis, patients are prone to this disease, there are also long-term obstructive diseases and long-term urinary stones untreated, which can also lead to repeated episodes of chronic inflammation of the genitourinary system, repeated irritation of the bladder, leading to cystitis glandularis.

In addition, inflammation of the genitourinary system, a type of male disease, may trigger cystitis, which can lead to this disease. Since the entire genitourinary tract is connected, if a man suffers from inflammation of the genitourinary system, pathogenic bacteria may pass through the external urethral orifice and enter the bladder retrogradely, triggering cystitis. Prostatitis, seminal vesiculitis, and epididymitis in men, whose inflammatory substances need to be discharged through the urethra, bacteria can also enter the bladder retrogradely and complicate cystitis. 

Therefore, on the one hand, men who suffer from inflammation of the genitourinary system must be treated promptly to prevent the disease from evolving into cystitis glandularis over time. 

Clinical urogenital inflammation often takes two major categories of drugs: the first category is antibiotics. Patients can take the relevant antibiotics according to the results of the examination or the doctor's opinion; the second category is Chinese patent drugs with the efficacy of clearing away heat and detoxifying the body, promoting blood circulation and removing blood stasis, such as Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill.

It adopts a variety of herbs that will not only not produce drug resistance and other side effects but also to the patient's genitourinary system for overall regulation, which is conducive to completely eliminating inflammation and alleviating the pain of the disease.

On the other hand, if a man is diagnosed with cystitis glandularis, he can take medication under the guidance of a doctor, or he can choose to undergo chemotherapy or undergo surgical treatment according to his condition. During the treatment, patients need to cooperate actively.

1. Drug Treatment: this disease is mainly caused by lower urinary tract infections and can also be triggered by urinary tract stones. After diagnosis, you can take some drugs under the guidance of the doctor for treatment, such as doxazosin, prednisone, and so on.

2. Chemotherapy: If your lesions are small in scope and there is no apparent change in the local mucosa, localized perfusion chemotherapy can be carried out under the doctor's guidance. Commonly used drugs for this treatment include BCG and interferon.

3. Surgical Management: Before surgery, partial or total cystectomy can be chosen depending on the patient's specific condition.

The above is the introduction of whether cystitis glandularis is related to male diseases. We hope men always pay attention to the health of their genitourinary systems. Once men experience discomfort symptoms, seek medical attention and take targeted treatment to get back to health as soon as possible.
