Treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia in “DoctorPRO” in Cherkassy
Benign prostatic hyperplasia is an urological disease that most often affects older men. Prostate adenoma, as the disease is called, is a benign tumor in the prostate gland, that does not affect other organs and does not propagate through the blood.
The main symptoms of prostate adenoma are, above all, problems with urination. Therefore, men should pay attention and think about visiting a doctor if:
- there are difficulties with the onset of urination – this requires straining;
- there are interruptions in urination;
- frequent visits to the toilet, especially at night;
- burning during urination or incomplete emptying of the bladder.
Diagnostics of prostate adenoma includes ultrasound examination of the prostate, digital rectal examination by a specialist, examination of the blood flow of the vessels of the penis, determination of the sensitivity of the genital area. In case of necessity, the doctor can prescribe a vasoactive test of erectile function.
What causes the disease?
The causes of prostate adenoma are most often associated with age-related hormonal changes in the body of a man. They can lead to a benign increase in prostate tissue.
Also, the causes of the disease can be:
- frequent hypothermia and bad habits: alcohol, smoking;
- excess weight;
- genetic predisposition and concomitant diseases (prostatitis, genitourinary system infections);
- sedentary lifestyle, lack of physical activity.
If you do not treat prostate adenoma, serious complications of the disease are possible. First of all, this is a partial or complete retention of urine. As a result, there may be different infections of the genitourinary system:
It is the kidney disease (pyelonephritis) that leads to the development of renal insufficiency and the dependence of a person on dialysis. This is the most serious complication of prostate adenoma.
Prevention of the disease consists in eliminating the causes. Avoid hypothermia, eat healthy food, avoid stress, try not to delay the process of urination deliberately. And, of course, undergo preventive examinations with an urologist. It must be remembered that not everyone has a disease with obvious symptoms. Therefore, only a doctor can diagnose it in the early stages.
