Cancer of the prostate is not the only prostate disorder that affects men; there are also two other major health problems which can develop in the prostate as well. BPH or benign prostatic hyperplasia (a benign enlargement of the prostate gland) has become a definite health problem for many aging men. Additionally there is the condition known as prostatitis which is a painful inflammation of the prostate gland. Furthermore these prostatic conditions are not one time only’ problems either. Their symptoms can return at any time bringing discomfort and sometimes embarrassment. These symptoms will include: Frequent urination blood in the urine pain when urinating and perhaps pain in the back and hips. These prostate disorders have symptoms which are similar to the symptoms which may affect the man who has developed prostate cancer.

Moreover some of the myths involving prostate cancer concern these two prostate disorders. There are those who believe that the presence of non-cancerous prostate disorders increase the risks of prostate cancer. BPH squeezes the urethra (the tube that carries urine out of the body) which runs directly through the prostate. BPH makes it difficult and painful for men to urinate but it is not responsible for a man developing prostate cancer.

Another misconception concerns the other prostate disorder “prostatitis. Prostatitis usually causes urinary tract infections in men. Since some of the symptoms of prostatitis are also painful urination burning urine flow and difficulty in urinating it often has been thought to elevate men’s risks of developing prostate cancer. However this is not true; the disorder prostatitis is no more likely to cause prostate cancer than BPH.

Although it is not a disorder of the prostate one more factor is wrongly thought to increase the prostate cancer risk. As a matter of fact this misconception is somewhat humorous: Increased sexual activity or frequent ejaculation can increase a man’s chances of developing prostate cancer. Actually prostate cancer research reveals the opposite: More sexual activity with more ejaculations lowers the risk of developing prostate cancer.

The three disorders of the prostate ” benign prostatic hyperplasia prostatitis and prostate cancer “can be treated successfully for relief of symptoms. For the BPH some treatments may be: Alpha-blockers drugs may be used for a moderate disorder and Alpha-blockers or 5-alpha reductase inhibitors may be prescribed for more advanced disease. In the case of unrelieved symptoms the doctor may discuss another treatment which may be surgery (Transurethral resection of the prostate). In all treatments the BPH symptoms will be relieved.

For prostatitis antibiotics will be the treatment for six weeks with treatment recurring if the disease returns. The patient must be sure to drink plenty of water to flush his system properly; he must eat a healthy balanced diet avoiding spicy foods caffeine and alcohol. He must also be sure to include moderate exercising in his routine. Adhering to these good health rules will also relieve the symptoms. If detected early enough prostate cancer will also be successfully treated without causing the loss of either urinary control or sexual function.

Tip Of The Week: The prostate gland can be the source of three disorders “benign prostatic hyperplasia prostatitis and prostate cancer but the most potentially damaging is prostate cancer. Although the first two disorders are benign (not cancerous) their symptoms can be as severe and as painful as later prostate cancer stages. These symptoms can be relieved by proper medical treatment. Since the signs of prostate cancer may not yet be obvious men should make their regular doctor visits being sure to discuss the subject of prostate health. Furthermore they should specifically inquire about prostate cancer screening even before any symptom of prostate cancer may be experienced.
