What are Prostate Disorders ?
Prostate problems arise not only in older men, actually it has been suggested that the age is dropping, even men as young as 25 have experienced prostate trouble.
However, Prostate disorders are associated mainly with age-related changes in steroid sex hormones. After the age of 40, testosterone declines, and a testosterone variant called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and the female-associated hormone oestrogen increases. DHT stimulates cell growth and, in turn, prostate enlargement.
The prostate is an exocrine gland of the male reproductive system. A healthy prostate is slightly larger than a walnut. Located in front of the rectum, just below the bladder. It surrounds the urethra, which is part of the problem by constricting urine flow once the prostate starts to enlarge.
The prostate contains smooth muscle that helps expel semen, which can be part of the pain syndrome as well.
The most common prostate related disorders are:
Prostatitis - Inflammatory infection - acute bacterial - Antibiotics usually needed
Chronic Prostatitis (CP) -
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a non-malignant enlargement of the prostate gland - chronic
Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (CPPS)
