The prostate is responsible for the production of a liquid known as semen. 
This pure fluid serves to:

  • Promote the movement of the sperm towards the ovum.
  • Feed the sperm during transit in the vagina and uterus.
  • neutralize the acidity of the vaginal tract, otherwise the sperm would be destroyed before reaching the egg for fertilization.

In other words, the prostate gland is needed to increase the chances of fertilization. 
Without this the life of the ejaculated sperm in the vaginal tract would be threatened and the chances of fertilization would be reduced.


Causes of inflamed prostate

Men who are at highest risk for prostatitis are between 30 and 50 years old, but it does not mean that men under 40 years of age can not suffer from this problem. 
The cause of prostatitis can be attributed to two reasons:

  1. The bacterial infections ,
  2. Non-infectious causes.

Prostatitis due to a bacterial infection can be divided into two types:

  1. Prostatitis bacteriana aguda ,
  2. Chronic bacterial prostatitis.

Acute prostatitis is the most frequent form of prostatitis. 
The bacteria that cause this infection often pass from the intestine or the rectal area to the prostate. 
There are some bacteria present in the bowel area that can sometimes multiply and spread to the prostate. 
This causes inflammation of the prostate gland. 
When bacterial prostatitis is not cured or when bacteria remain in the prostate gland, even after treatment, a chronic bacterial prostatitis may develop.

The prostatodynia (prostate pain) , and chronic non – bacterial prostatitis are two types of prostate diseases due to reasons other than bacterial infection. 
However, doctors have not discovered the exact reason that can cause these types of prostatitis. 
Among the triggering factors of non-bacterial prostatitis are activities such as working with heavy machinery, driving a truck etc. which expose the prostate to strong vibrations, causing the problem of prostatitis. 
In addition, also cycling can cause irritation in the prostate.

 


Symptoms of inflammation of the prostate

The symptoms of prostatitis depend on the reasons that caused inflammation and enlargement of the prostate. 
However, there are some symptoms that can occur in all types of prostatitis. 
The most frequent symptom of prostatitis is severe pain in the pelvic region . 
A person may feel pain in the penis,  in the testicles . 
Symptoms may get worse after intercourse. 
The pain can also be felt in the groin , lower belly  or the patient reported pain in the lower back . 
Another symptom of prostatitis is pain or discomfort when urinating . 
Even stopping urinationis a sign of prostate enlargement. 
Along with difficulty during urination, men may also have a higher frequency of urgeand urgency to urinate .
This is due to increased pressure in the prostate gland due to an infection. 
Men with prostatitis may suffer from pain during ejaculation .

The impotence and erection problems are other symptoms that are seen in people suffering from prostatodynia. 
In some cases, there is a decrease in libido . 
In addition to these symptoms, men are also prone to suffer from high fever and chills caused by acute bacterial prostatitis. 
This disease also causes  nausea .

In some cases prostatitis is mild or asymptomatic , with no symptoms. 
There are patients with pain in the prostate, but there is no infection or other signs of prostatitis, this disorder mainly affects young people. 
Blood tests may have high PSA values, about 15 ng / ml.

 

How to remove a prostate?

Antibiotics for an inflamed prostate

There are certain antibiotics recommended for effective treatment. 
They are mainly used to relieve the symptoms of chronic prostatitis (swelling and inflammation of the prostate). 
The most commonly used drugs are:

  • Sulfametoxazol
  • Trimetoprima
  • Ofloxacin
  • Norfloxacino

Antibiotics have side effects, especially in the stomach, for example nausea and diarrhea . 
In addition to medications, there are herbal remedies (such as serenoa repens) that are considered as an herbal treatment. 
However, there are conflicting views on the effectiveness of this herb in treating the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia.
