The reproductive organ of males is called the prostate. Its purpose is to release fluids that protect and feeds the sperm cells of a male. However, males can experience prostate problems, and men above 50 years face prostate issues though it is seen in males in their 40s also. Acupressure for prostate problems is a natural and effective solution. Read on to know more.
Causes of Prostate Problems
Many times doctors cannot determine the actual cause behind prostate problems. However, various factors, such as changes in testicle cells and aging, are considered responsible for different issues in the prostate gland. It is believed that the probability of having BPH increases with age. Other factors contributing to BPH include changes in male hormones, formation of fibrosis, and inflammation.
In another condition, the prostate gland may shrink and reduce in size. It is more likely to happen in men who have their testicles removed. The prostate may grow in size as the number of testicle cells increases.
At an early stage of BPH, the bladder muscles become thicker. As a result, urine is forced through the much narrowed urethral tube, thereby increasing the sensitivity and frequent urge to urinate. The urethra gets squeezed with enlarging prostate, and the patient may develop subsequent bladder problems.
Moreover, researchers believe that Chronic prostatitis is caused by infection of tiny organisms similar to bacteria. Other causes may include pelvic nerve damage, prior urinary tract infections, or chemicals in the urine.
Types of Prostate problems
There are mainly three types of prostate problems and a man may experience one or more of these conditions-
- Inflammation or prostatitis – this condition can occur in men in the age group 30 to 50 years
- Non-cancerous prostate enlargement or Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia ( BPH) – this is found in older men, though not a dangerous but still a significant condition.
- Prostate Cancer – Mostly men above the age of 50 years face this prostate condition
Hence, if you have a family history of prostate problems or you are in your 50s/ 60s, then do consult your doctor for a regular prostate gland checkup.
