Prostate calculus refers to the calculus formed in prostate tissue or acinus. Generally, the calcium salt and phosphate contained in prostate fluid are mostly deposited, and infection can promote the formation of stones. It is as small as corn, as large as peas, round or oval, polyhedral, one or hundreds in number, generally dark brown or black. Specifically, how did prostate stones form? When does it often happen? How can you treat it? After reading this article, you will understand.
How do prostate stones form?
1. It is believed that prostate stones surround the core of organic matter and gradually increase like snowmen. The core of this organic substance is usually blood clot, bacteria, necrotic tissue or starch sample. When urine flows through the urethra, it can flow back from the mouth of the prostate tube to the distal prostate tube for some reasons. Calcium salt crystals in urine, such as calcium phosphate, magnesium phosphate, calcium carbonate, magnesium carbonate or calcium oxalate, can gradually deposit on the core of organic matter, gradually increase, and form stones.
2. It is believed that the formation of calculus is due to the chronic inflammation of the prostatic vesicle and excretory duct, leading to the expansion of the acinus, leading to the stricture of the prostatic duct, and the deposition of some salts on the normal prostate tissue after the urine reflux, forming prostate calculus.
3. It is believed that BPH will increase the pressure in the prostate duct, lead to the stagnation of endocrine fluid in the gland duct, and the salt components will deposit on the compressed cortex or surgical capsule around the prostate, thus forming prostate stones.
Prostate stones can occur at any age
Prostate calculus, usually stones grow in the prostate. The traditional view is that prostate stones will only entangle the middle-aged and elderly. In fact, young people are at risk of prostate stones.
Prostate infection is an important factor in the formation of prostate stones, which are closely related to the duration of symptoms of prostatitis. Prostatitis promotes epithelial cell detachment and prostate tube blockage, expands the acini, narrows the duct, and urine flows back into the prostate. Crystalline substances in urine accumulate on the amyloid body of gland tissue to form stones.
In addition, when prostatitis occurs, the composition of prostatic fluid changes, white blood cells, bacteria and other foreign bodies increase, and inorganic salts and calcium are easy to attach to form stones. In turn, prostate stones aggravate the symptoms of prostatitis. With the change of social living environment, the trend of prostatitis becoming younger has become increasingly obvious. Although the incidence rate of prostate stones in young people is lower than that in middle-aged and elderly people, the risk still exists.
