Does Prostate Calcification Lead to Cancer? 6 Key 'Don'ts' for Prostate Protection

During physical examinations, prostate calcification may sometimes be detected. So, what is prostate calcification and will it lead to prostate cancer?

Prostate Calcification and Cancer

Can prostate calcification lead to cancer?

Prostate calcification is mainly formed by shedding epithelial cells or secretions. Prostate secretions can lead to inflammation, promoting the formation of crystals and precipitation of inorganic salts such as calcium phosphate in the prostate to form calcification. The occurrence of calcification can trigger infection. Therefore, prostate infection can cause calcification, which in turn can promote or worsen the infection.

Does prostate calcification lead to cancer? Firstly, prostate calcification is not cancer, and in most cases, it does not lead to cancer. The primary cause of prostate calcification is a history of prostatitis in men, and it usually occurs after prostatitis has healed. Prostate calcification is a remnant sign of healed prostatitis. It does not affect normal life or sexual function, and it does not transform into cancer. Therefore, older individuals who are diagnosed with prostate calcification need not worry.

There is no direct causal relationship between prostate calcification and prostate cancer. While prostate calcification is not cancerous and does not become cancerous, it is possible for prostate calcification and prostate cancer to coexist. Therefore, if there is any concern about prostate cancer, it is advisable to visit a hospital for a check-up if any discomfort is experienced.

If the calcification is caused by prostatitis and the patient also presents some symptoms such as frequent urination, urgency, difficulty urinating, and other lower urinary tract symptoms, the patient needs to receive corresponding medication treatment. In addition to common antibiotics, the diuretic and gonorrhea promoting effects of traditional Chinese medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill can also help patients eliminate symptoms and restore normal life.

Men should adhere to these six practices for prostate protection:

1. Avoid Prolonged Sitting 

Sitting for extended periods can harm the prostate, leading to congestion and making it difficult for prostate fluid to be excreted, causing nonbacterial inflammation. It is recommended that men stand and move around every 40 minutes and pay attention to their sitting posture to relax the prostate.

2. Avoid Excessive Alcohol Consumption

Alcohol can cause capillary dilation, leading to congestion and swelling in the prostate tissue, causing discomfort. This congestion in the prostate can be rapid but slow to subside, leading to prolonged clinical symptoms. Hence, heavy drinkers should be concerned about their prostate health.

3. Avoid Spicy Foods 

Spicy foods are irritants and can stimulate the prostate and urethra, causing vasodilation. This can lead to a significant bacterial presence in the prostate, triggering prostatitis.

4. Avoid Getting Chilled


Cold temperatures can cause the prostate gland to contract and the glandular ducts and blood vessels to dilate. Over time, this can lead to chronic congestion in the prostate, triggering prostate diseases.

5. Do Not Hold Urine

Holding urine gives bacteria the opportunity to grow. Normally, bacteria in the lower part of the male urethra are flushed out during urination. Frequently holding urine weakens this flushing action, allowing bacteria to multiply and ascend into the urethra, which can lead to prostatitis.

6. Avoid Excessive Sexual Activity

A healthy sex life is closely related to prostate health. Frequent sexual activity can cause excessive congestion in the prostate, triggering prostatitis. Conversely, overly suppressing sexual desire can lead to stagnation of prostate fluid, which can also induce inflammation. Therefore, a balanced sex life is crucial for maintaining prostate health.
