The chronic inflammation of the prostate affects about 30% of men aged 20 to 50 years. This is one of the most popular among the men of urological diseases.
Because of the inflammation of prostatitis are divided into two groups. The first group includes infectious diseases, the prostatitis, which can be caused by a variety of bacteria, viruses, or fungi.
The second group consists of the so-called stagnant (congestive), prostatitis, the reason for that are the stagnation of liquid (secret) of the prostate and of the blood in the veins of this body. The development of these symptoms can occur, for example, if a sexual life. The venous stasis may occur during the long sedentary work in a sitting position (for example, drivers of automobiles, knowledge workers), when wearing a tight underwear, as well as the abuse of alcohol.
The factors development of prostatitis
In addition, the factors predisposing to the development of prostatitis, are the following: a reduction in the body's defenses, hormonal disorders, unhealed foci of infection, in which the germs penetrate the prostate, and contribute to inflammation.
The risk of prostatitis due to a decrease of immunity above, it is sick people, at the bottom of the nervous overload, chronic stress, smoking, and alcohol. All of these factors, or to facilitate the penetration of the infection to the prostate gland, or lead to a deterioration in the vascularity of the pelvic organs, in the process, which contributes to the growth of microorganisms and the development of the inflammatory process.
Most often, prostate develops in the chronic form, for several years, without particular concern. This may occur also in severe pain, unpleasant sensations in the perineum, smack in the sacrum, genitals, or rectum. There is periodically a quick, painful, difficult urination, little urethral.
Unfortunately, most men at this stage, do not pay attention to these symptoms, but to no avail. The danger of chronic prostatitis is that its spread through the urinary system can lead to the development of cystitis and pyelonephritis.
In addition, the complications of prostatitis are vesiculitis — inflammation of the seminal vesicles, and orchiepididymitis — inflammation of the testicles and their appendages, and it is, ultimately, may lead to male infertility. In addition, the inflammatory process in the prostate gland, in the future, be the cause of the development adenoma of the prostate, or cancer of the prostate.
After some time, the prostatitis cause erection problems. It is linked to the commitment in the inflammation process of the nerves responsible for erectile function, which pass through the prostate.
