Prostatic hyperplasia is the most common disease in elderly men, especially after the age of 50. In the early clinical stage, the number of urination increases, the range of urination line decreases, blood drips after urination, and even hematuria occurs.
In clinical practice, massive bleeding caused by prostatic hyperplasia is rare, and most of it is microscopic hematuria. The prostate is an organ containing blood vessels. After hyperplasia, the blood vessels of the prostate are more abundant. The enlarged prostate body presses on the bladder and urethra. With each urination, it will be impacted by the urine and compressed and restricted by the urethral sphincter and pelvic muscles. The blood vessels in the prostate will rupture and hematuria will occur. Disease should be prevented first, so should prostatic hyperplasia. When hematuria occurs, you must go to the hospital immediately. Benign prostatic hypertrophy is more common in the elderly and does not cause cancer. However, the prostate is located at the exit of the bladder and at a special position around the urethra. Once hyperplasia occurs, it will compress the urethra from all directions, hinder the excretion of urine in the bladder, cause a series of diseases of the urinary system, and affect urination. The main treatment is surgical treatment.
At present, BPH cannot be prevented and can only reduce its severity, so daily nursing is very important. So the following measures should be taken:
1. Eat more vegetables: Researchers surveyed more than 32000 male health care workers with an average age of 51 years on whether they often eat 131 kinds of food (including various fruits and vegetables), age, weight, race, sports, smoking and drinking, and medical records. The study found that the people who eat the most vegetables are 11% less likely to have benign prostatic hypertrophy surgery or the symptoms of benign prostatic hypertrophy become serious than other people β Fruits and vegetables containing carotene, lutein, vitamin C and other antioxidants will also reduce the incidence of benign prostatic hypertrophy.
2. Prevention of cold: cold will worsen symptoms, pay special attention to heat preservation, especially from the end of autumn to early spring when the weather is changeable.
3. Absolutely abstain from alcohol: drinking alcohol can cause congestion and edema of prostate and bladder neck and induce urinary retention.
4. Less spicy food: spicy and pungent food can not only cause congestion of sexual organs, but also aggravate hemorrhoids and constipation symptoms, oppress the prostate, and aggravate dysuria
5. Can't stop urine: stopping urine will make the bladder overfilled, the bladder force urine muscle tension weakened, urination difficulty, easy to induce acute urine retention, so urination is necessary.
