In this era, the pace of life has become very fast. For men, it has become a normal that they do not pay attention to their physical condition for work and family. The prostate is the source of life for men. If the prostate is not good, men's life will become very bad. Prostatitis seriously endangers the normal life of men, so many people will ask, what is prostatitis? Today we will learn about prostatitis from two aspects.
What is prostatitis
Prostatitis is a prostate disease caused by a variety of complex reasons, with urethral irritation and chronic pelvic pain as the main clinical manifestations. Prostatitis is a common disease in urology, which ranks first among male patients under 50 years of age in urology. Although the incidence rate of prostatitis is very high, its etiology is still not very clear, especially non bacterial prostatitis, so its treatment is mainly to improve symptoms.
In 1995, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) of the United States developed a new classification method for prostatitis. Type I: equivalent to acute bacterial prostatitis in the traditional classification method, type II: equivalent to chronic bacterial prostatitis in the traditional classification method, type III: chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome, type IV: asymptomatic prostatitis. Nonbacterial prostatitis is more common than bacterial prostatitis.
Etiology of prostatitis
The first reason is that if personal hygiene can not be cleaned frequently, especially the lower part of the reproductive and urinary organs, it is easy to cause urinary tract infection and induce prostate disease if personal hygiene is not paid attention to. Personal hygiene is very important.
Cause 2: Infection of various pathogenic microorganisms is also one of the causes of prostatitis, such as viruses, mycoplasma, chlamydia, bacteria, spirochetes, fungi, trichomonas, etc., which can cause disease. The main way is urinary tract infection. The ascending infected urine spreads from the urethra and prostate to the prostate gland, causing bacterial inflammation.
The third reason is that the cause of prostatitis also includes biological factors. When the body immunity is normal, even if there are pathogens in the urethra, it will not infect and cause disease; On the contrary, if the immunity decreases, the non-pathogenic bacteria that normally exist in the urinary system can sometimes cause human disease.
So men, do you know what prostatitis is? Prostatitis is not an incurable or refractory disease. You can avoid prostatitis by paying more attention to your health, personal hygiene, diet, not being sedentary, and controlling your sex life. Don't think that prostatitis is not a disease and don't pay attention to prevention, and don't worry about it!
