What is prostate?
The prostate is a walnut-sized gland that forms part of the male reproductive system. The prostate is located in front of the rectum and just below the bladder, where urine is stored. The prostate also surrounds the urethra, the canal through which urine and semen pass out of the body. The prostate squeezes fluid into the urethra to help make up semen as sperm move through during sexual climax.
Conditions affecting the Prostate Gland
- Prostatitis: Inflammation of the prostate gland. It is often the result of a bacterial infection
- Enlarged Prostate: A non cancerous growth of the prostate that can interfere with urination. Symptoms include: urgent feeing to urinate, weak urinary stream, frequent need to urinate, involuntary discharge of urine.
- Prostate Cancer: Cancer affecting the prostate gland. It is the most common cancer in American men. Prostate cancer grows slowly and may not spread for many years. Symptoms include: difficulty starting urine flow, pain during urination, loss of weight and appetite, blood in urine, painful ejaculation. A prostate exam can help prevent prostate cancer.
Acute bacterial prostatitis causes and symptoms
Acute bacterial prostatitis is an infection of the prostate that is often caused by some of the same bacteria that cause bladder infections. These include E. coli, Klebsiella, and Proteus. While it may be acquired as a sexually transmitted disease, the infection can also spread to the prostate through the blood stream, directly from an adjacent organ, or as a complication of prostate biopsy. Patients with acute bacterial prostatitis present with signs of an infection and may have:
- chills, and
Commonly there is urgency and frequency of urination and dysuria (painful or difficult urination).
Chronic Prostatitis without infection causes and symptoms
Chronic prostatitis without infection, also known as chronic pelvic pain syndrome, is a condition where there is recurrent pelvic, testicle, or rectal pain without evidence of bladder infection. There may be difficulties with painful urination or ejaculation, and erectile dysfunction. The cause of chronic prostatitis without infection is not clearly understood.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia -also called BPH- is a condition that affects the prostate gland in men. As men age, the prostate gland slowly grows bigger (or enlarges). As the prostate gets bigger, it may press on the urethra and cause the flow of urine to be slower and less forceful. “Benign” means the enlargement isn’t caused by cancer or infection. “Hyperplasia” means enlargement.
Many symptoms of BPH stem from obstruction of the urethra and gradual loss of bladder function, which results in incomplete emptying of the bladder. The symptoms of BPH vary, but the most common ones involve changes or problems with urination, such as
- a hesitant, interrupted, weak stream
- urgency and leaking or dribbling
- more frequent urination, especially at night
Some men with greatly enlarged glands have little obstruction and few symptoms while others, whose glands are less enlarged, have more blockage and greater problems.
Sometimes a man may not know he has any obstruction until he suddenly finds himself unable to urinate at all. This condition, called acute urinary retention, urinary retention also can be brought on by alcohol, cold temperatures, or a long period of immobility.
Severe BPH can cause serious problems over time. Urine retention and strain on the bladder can lead to urinary tract infections, bladder or kidney damage, bladder stones, and incontinence—the inability to control urination. If the bladder is permanently damaged, treatment for BPH may be ineffective. When BPH is found in its earlier stages, there is a lower risk of developing such complications.
