Prostatitis is the "scourge" of the male half of humanity.prostatitis in a manThe age of the disease decreases every year. A few decades ago, genitourinary dysfunction was only diagnosed in middle-aged men. Now prostatitis has become younger, so even 20-year-old boys and adolescents are not immune to it.

The difference between prostatitis and prostate adenoma

What is the difference between prostatitis and prostate adenoma? If in the first case we are talking about inflammation, in the second we are talking about the process of tumor growth. At the level of clinical manifestations, chronic prostatitis is very difficult to distinguish from an adenoma, which is why it is so important not to start the disease, but to undergo an examination as soon as possible.

Types of prostatitis

Several factors cause prostatitis:

  • bacterial - pathogens of sexually transmitted and genital infections, Escherichia coli;
  • abacterial - deformation of muscle tissue due to a sedentary lifestyle and work, stress.

Acute and chronic prostatitis are forms of the disease that differ in their clinical picture and consequences.

Symptoms of the disease

One of the criteria for differentiating the disease is the age of the man. Prostate adenoma practically does not occur in people under the age of 45. Prostatitis is diagnosed in 15, 25 and 40 year olds.

Diagnosis and treatment of prostatitis

No need to guess and hope at random. Prostatitis can be detected quickly and almost painlessly. A man needs to urinate and secrete from the prostate for a bacterial culture, ultrasound, or TRUS.

This is not a universal set, the preparations are selected according to individual indications and always in combination with a complex of drugs and procedures to relieve symptoms of inflammation and immune support.

diagnosis and treatment of prostate adenoma

If an adenoma is suspected, in addition to standard studies, CT or MRI may be ordered. If the PSA test is bad, a biopsy will be done.

For the treatment of prostate adenoma, 2 groups of drugs are used: to suppress tumor growth and to facilitate urination. You can try drugs that solve both of these problems at the same time. The preparations "Palma Creeping Fruit Extract", "Prostate Extract", as an independent remedy, are ineffective.


To prevent prostatitis, follow a few simple rules:

  • treat colds;
  • lead an active life;
  • give up bad habits.
