text size A A A

 Chronic prostatitis can be referred as the inflammation or infection of the prostate. This is a common problem to virtually all adult men. It should not come as a surprise that prostatitis is associated with technically all cases of prostate cancer and present in all prostate biopsy regardless of the findings. Urologists at the University of Washington maintain that all men have at least one incident of prostatitis in their life time.
Chronic prostatitis does not cause any significant symptoms in majority of the men, but in others it can be a quite a hell of a condition in that it severely alters the quality of life of the affected. As much as numerous research is ongoing in this field, it is still very difficult to diagnose and even more difficult to treat this condition.

Several therapies are available but there's little rate of success in most cases. As far as this condition is concerned, there is not medical treatment that can restore the optimal health and wellness of the prostate over a long term, a proven approach, with a patented formula, may be your last resort in taming this condition.

Recap
Only men have a prostate gland. It is a walnut sized and shaped gland that surrounds the tip of the urethra. The gland naturally enlarges thought life depending on the various different stimuli. A healthy prostate gland is spongy and the size of a walnut. The most significant growth of the prostate, associated with an increase in the number of cells, begins in the early to mid-40s and is believed to be related to Dihydrotestosterone production.

Inflammation or uncontrolled growth of the prostate gland will more often than not cause difficulties in urination and should therefore be addressed at the earliest sign. Although the gland doesn't have too much of functionalities, it is responsible for the production of semen that nourishes ant protects the sperm.
Prostatitis is typically the inflammation or infection of the prostate. It can be divided into two major categories; bacterial and non-bacterial. Bacterial prostatitis can be further divided into acute and chronic prostatitis while the non-bacterial is only chronic. Acute prostatitis is associated with findings of fever, chills and rigors (shakes) and it is often curable. On the downside though, most cases of prostatitis are chronic and tend to be incurable, with relatively frequent rate of re-emergence despite the anti-biotic treatments (they are effective in less than 5% of cases).

Symptoms of prostatitis
Symptoms of prostatitis are also common to EP or enlarged prostate. According to NIH, they form the number one reason why men seek the advice of their Urologist. The most prevalent symptom of chronic prostatitis is pelvic pain, coupled by various voiding symptoms like impotence and/or infertility. Pain associated with prostatitis is commonly felt on the groin, testicles, lower back, penis, circumferentially around the rectum, the perineum and/or in the suprapubic area above the bladder.

Treatment options available

Treatment of prostate has been anything but a sure proposition. According to specialists, "there is widespread frustration, discomfort, and lack of knowledge in both primary care physicians and urologists' ability to manage prostatitis."
