PROSTATITIS: The Incessant growth of prostate disease is becoming alarming in Nigeria, BPH and Prostatitis being the most prevalence withing the age range of 30 – 69.
Prostatitis is the inflammation or infection of the prostate gland characterized by discomfort, pain, frequent or infrequent urination, and, sometimes, fever. The prostate is a small, walnut-shaped gland that is part of the male reproductive system. The prostate’s main job is to help make fluid for semen. Semen protects and energizes sperm as they travel to the female egg. Bacterial prostatitis is caused by a bacterial infection in the prostate. Bacteria can get into the prostate when infected urine flows backwards from the urethra. A sex partner can’t “catch” this type of infection. Bacteria can be found in urine, prostate fluid or blood tests.
Nonbacterial prostatitis may be linked to stress, nerve inflammation or irritation, injuries or prior urinary tract infections. Or it may occur if your body reacts to an infection or injury that happened in the past. This form of prostatitis has no signs of bacteria in the urine or seminal fluid.
