Everyone is familiar with prostatitis, because the incidence rate of this disease is too high, which has a great impact on men's health. The reason why the incidence rate of prostatitis is so high is that people do not know enough about the disease. In addition, the prostate is also fragile, so it is easy to have inflammation. So, how much do you know about prostatitis?
Mistake 1: Prostatitis and prostatic hyperplasia are the same thing
"There are often patients who confuse these two diseases, and many patients worry that prostatitis can directly lead to prostate hyperplasia. In fact, these are not correct understandings.". This is because prostatitis and benign prostatic hyperplasia are two different types of diseases, with different etiology and pathology, and there is no necessary connection between the two.
Myth 2: Prostatitis can infect others and requires abstinence
In clinical practice, many prostatitis are not caused by bacteria, and also belong to non bacterial prostatitis. For this type of prostatitis, it is not infectious. In addition, excessive abstinence can lead to the accumulation of prostate fluid, which is not suitable for patients to recover. Therefore, under normal circumstances, patients with prostatitis can lead a married life.
Myth 3: Prostatitis is a sexually transmitted disease
Prostatitis is considered a sexually transmitted disease by many people because it is difficult to complete treatment. In fact, many patients with prostatitis usually do not have any symptoms, which can cause the stimulation of prostatitis by external factors, including colds, alcohol consumption, indulgence or excessive abstinence, prolonged cycling, perineal trauma, urethral equipment testing, and emotional changes, but they do not have sexually transmitted diseases.
