Chronic prostatitis is a common male disease among young and middle-aged people. Currently, most medical advertisements exaggerate the harm of prostatitis. Professor Yang Huai told us, "Prostatitis can be prevented and treated, and prostatitis patients do not need to worry too much
Nowadays, when we casually open a newspaper or click on a website, medical advertisements that specialize in treating prostatitis, impotence, and premature ejaculation are constantly trying to grab your attention. Almost all advertisements claim that "prostatitis seriously affects health, and if left untreated, it can cause impotence, premature ejaculation, and male infertility", and even some people promote that prostatitis can cause cancer. Is prostatitis really so scary?
Yang Huai, Deputy Director of the Andrology Center of the Outpatient Department of Guangzhou General Hospital of the Guangzhou Military Region, believes that most medical advertisements currently exaggerate the harm of prostatitis. He tells us, "Prostatitis is not such a terrible disease, it will not endanger life safety or cause extensive damage to bodily functions. Prostatitis can be prevented and treated, and patients with prostatitis do not need to worry excessively
Prostatitis does not cause sexual dysfunction
The prostate is a male specific organ, shaped like a chestnut, with the bottom facing back, adjacent to the bladder, and the tip facing forward, reaching the genitourinary diaphragm. Prostatitis refers to a group of symptoms characterized by pain or discomfort in the pelvic area, abnormal urination, and other symptoms of the prostate gland under the action of pathogens or certain non infectious factors.
Chronic prostatitis is a common male disease among young and middle-aged people, and many young men who suffer from it are worried about whether they can get married in the future, whether marriage will not affect sexual function, and whether they can have children. In fact, when male friends suffer from prostatitis, there is no need to panic. Professor Yang Huai said, "Prostatitis itself has no serious consequences, but the mental burden caused by the disease often exceeds the disease itself
Male friends who suffer from prostatitis are particularly concerned about inducing sexual dysfunction. Professor Yang Huai bluntly pointed out that the widely circulated view online that "prostatitis leads to sexual dysfunction" is completely misleading. Those middle-aged and elderly people who suffer from severe prostate hyperplasia and have their prostate removed do not necessarily affect sexual function, let alone inflammation of the prostate. Professor Yang Huai further added: "Some patients with prostatitis have sexual dysfunction, the vast majority of which is caused by psychological factors. Patients are in a state of depression and anxiety all day, with high mental tension, which over time leads to psychological sexual dysfunction.
