Talking About Prostate Health
Last Edited: July 4th, 2012
An issue to make even the masculine of men blush, prostate condition is not one from which to shy away. The prostate is like a walnut gland in the male reproductive system that acts in sexual and urinary health. Even if ostensibly small and of little significance, an unhealthy prostate can essentially grow into a really huge problem, relatively accurately, when ignored for too long.

A Rising Difficult

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (hypertrophy), or BPH, is a non-cancerous broadening of the prostate gland, of which the precise source is unknown. BPH marks roughly half of men over age forty. Study recommends the occurrence of the male sex hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is created from testosterone and the enzyme 5-alpha reductase, leads to prostate enlargement. Also, the hormone estradiol, of which production increases in men as they age, may act together with DHT to result in BPH.

BPH leads to a continuing pinching or blockade of the urethra triggering progressive disorders in the urinary system such as inflammation or infection of the prostate, bladder and urethral inflammation/infection, urine retention, excruciating urination and/or ejaculation, incapacity or strain urinating, flank pain, pain in abdomen and hips, incidence, incontinence—in other words, huge problems. Furthermore, weakness and other sexual dilemmas grow, every so often leading to sensitive, mental and relationship dilemmas. Not all symptoms lead to more severe conditions, but their occurrence can be sufficient to lessen value of life vividly.

In order to address BPH, men have numerous choices. One choice, an uncomfortable view for some to ponder to its, well, indiscreet nature, prostate massage often gets a bad perception. Nevertheless, prostate massage has been into practice for for a long time now to relieve the symptoms of prostate disorders and preserve healthy prostates as a replacement for pharmaceuticals and/or surgery. 

Food supplements are attaining its acceptance as being a harmless, less intrusive and economical way to address prostate problems.

Prostate Cancer

Furthermore to BPH, prostate cancer distresses a terrific amount of men. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer (other than some forms of skin cancer) and the second leading cause of cancer deaths among men in the United States, after lung cancer, with about 62% of all clinically diagnosed prostate cancers occurring in men over age 65. Many symptoms of BPH also seem to be common to prostate cancer.
