Benign prostatic hypertrophy
commonly refers to benign enlargement of the prostate (BEP). It is especially prevalent in older men aged over 45-60. Clinically, untreated prostatic hyperplasia will bring much harm to men, such as fibrosis of prostate, calcified prostate
, and it can even cause male infertility. Thus, it is crucial for men to know its proper and effective treatment.
Generally, there are four treatment options: vigilance observed, western drugs, surgery and TCM therapy.
1. Vigilance observed is generally for diagnosing prostatic hypertrophy patients. It can observe the patients' conditions to take some corresponding physical treatment. Thus, it has no therapeutic effect, only for nursing of the disease.
2. Western drugs can indeed relieve some symptoms of the disease. However, the drugs have many side effects and patients are easy to develop drug resistance, even cause damage immune system. Besides, some western medicine is only used to relieve symptoms, but it cannot entirely clear the pathogenesis. Therefore, drug treatment is not a proper treatment for prostatic hyperplasia.
3. Surgical treatment is mainly for bilateral testis orchiectomy, transurethral resection of the prostate and some other palliative surgery. However, the surgery has high risks and it costs a lot.
4. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) treatment is aimed at comprehensive conditioning and thoroughly curing the disease. Although it needs a relatively long period of time, but the effect is good and the relapse rate is low.
In a view, if surgery or medical therapy cannot cure the disease entirely, patients can try the TCM treatment like taking diuretic and anti-inflammatory pill
. The herbal pill is made of Plantago seed, Dianthus superbus, Talc, Earthworm, Seaweed, Pangolin, Safflower, Honeysuckle, Houttuynia, Gardenia, Scutellaria Baicalensis, Amomum, Cowherb Seed, Woody, Magnolia, Citrus aurantium and some other herbs.
The herbal pill not only can improve the obstructive symptoms and relieve frequency and urgency in patients, but also has good effect on reducing the proliferation of prostatic hypertrophy. Patients can achieve complete cure within 1-3 months' treatment.
It is worth recalling that for patients with abnormal hypertrophy, if it is scope of surgery treatment, they can also take diuretic anti-inflammatory pill to promote healing after the surgery.
