prostate infection symptoms - deal with it quickly

prostate infection symptoms

Men have never been very good when it comes to discussing their physical well being, particularly when it involved illnesses, which is why it is so important to be aware of possible prostate infection symptoms. Men somehow think it is much more macho to soldier on, and to suffer in silence. This is not only misguided, but it can be downright dangerous too. The sooner a condition is spotted, the sooner a treatment can be started. Far too many men die needlessly before their time because they did not take any notice of things that could have pointed to conditions such as prostate cancer.

A normal healthy prostate gland is about the size of a plum, but as men age, the prostate continues to grow. It sits in a crowded area of the lower pelvis, so when benign growth, (referred to as BPH) happens it brings pressure to bear on the urethra making urinating a problem, and sometimes causing pain. There are several different common prostate complaints and here are some of the prostate infection symptoms you should be on the lookout for.

The first symptom is difficulty urinating. This difficulty may manifest itself in the strength of the flow, and when urinating, you may experience a burning sensation. If you exhibit any of these symptoms you should see your doctor immediately.

One of the most common forms of prostate disease, (so called prostatitis), is acute bacterial prostatitis. In addition to the symptoms already mentioned, acute bacterial prostatitis symptoms include fever, pain in the genitals, pain in the lower back, horrible smelling urine, finding it difficult to pass stools, and constantly feeling as if you want to urinate. Once diagnosed, it is usually successfully treated with antibiotics.

Not quite as common as acute bacterial prostatitis, is chronic bacterial prostatitis. In addition to the prostate infection symptoms listed above, other symptoms include an urgent need to urinate, pain during and/or after urination, pain in the testes, and aching joints. Once again, a course of antibiotics is the usual remedy.

The most common form of prostatitis is non-chronic prostatitis. As well as experiencing pain when urinating, and having pain your genitals, with this chronic complaint you also feel pain when you ejaculate. The symptoms come and go, making it quite difficult to diagnose. It is important to have an immediate examination to catch, identify, and get the appropriate antibiotic prescription.

For many men, BPH (Benign Prostate Hyperplasia) is a common aliment. It basically means a steady, benign growth of the prostate. Once BPH starts there is no cure other than surgical intervention. However, with the right prescription, growth can be slowed and controlled. BPH manifests itself in one of two ways. Firstly, there is a growth of new cell tissue around the urethra. This causes the urethra to be squeezed interfering with the process of urination. This type of growth is controlled with drugs.

The second type of BPH growth is where new cells grow into the urethra and the bladder area. This type of growth requires a surgical procedure.

By spotting prostate infection symptoms quickly, and getting an early diagnosis, the right medication can be prescribed and the growth checked. Even if prostate cancer is found, the earlier it is found and removed, the better the prognosis for the patient. So remember; remain vigilant, and at the first signs of prostate problems, go and see your doctor immediately. Home Page
