Prostatitis is the inflammation (swelling) of the prostate gland. It can be very painful and distressing.
The prostate is a small gland found in men that lies between the penis and bladder. It produces fluid that’s mixed with sperm to create semen. Prostate consists of labyrinth of prostatic ducts. These open into the prostatic portion of the urethra
Unlike other prostate conditions, such as prostate enlargement or prostate cancer, which usually affect older men, prostatitis can develop in men of all ages. However, it commonly affects men aged between 30 and 50.
Chronic prostatitis – where the symptoms come and go over a period of several months; it’s the most common type; it’s not usually caused by an infection. Usually there is some kind of non-bacterial inflammation. Very often we can see small calculi (small stones) on the prostate ultrasound. In my theory if there are too much of these stones/calculi then symptoms are worse. We can suspect that these small stones have small bacterial colonies around or inside them. These bacteries are producing protective biofilm and other mechanisms to defend against host defensive cells or antibiotics. They are irritating prostate mechanically and chemically. So that’s why it’s practically impossible to make prostate 100% healthy again and we concentrate on symptomatic treatment.
Globally prevalence of chronic prostatitis 2-10%. In Finland this number is even higher: 14%.
Benign prostate hyperplasia (enlargement of prostate) is often accompanied by chronic prostatitis. Symptoms of these 2 conditions can be quite similar.
Benign prostate enlargement can be diagnosed in 10% of men aged 30-40, in 20% of 40-50y.o, in 50-60% 60-70y.o. So it’s not a surprise that doctors and scientists pay a lot of attention to this health condition.
Chronic prostatitis can be one of the reasons why Your prostate is growing faster. Unfortunately treatment of chronic prostatitis is long and time consuming process.
