Prostatitis is a common urinary system disease in men. Its clinical symptoms are more complex and manifest as systemic symptoms. The clinical symptoms of each patient are different, and frequent urination and urgency are typical symptoms.
In addition, prostatitis patients may have other symptoms:
1. Pain and discomfort. When prostatitis occurs, patients will feel abdominal pain or throbbing pain, and this pain will feel like radiation from the genitals and perineum. It can even lead to the bottom of the waist. Pain in the suprapubic area of the perineum, sometimes involving the testicles and groin.
2. Urine color changes. The normal urine color is mainly light yellow, and the urine is clear. However, if there is inflammation, the color of the urine changes, it will turn yellow and darker, and the urine will be cloudy. There may even be white urine or blood in the urine, and there will be white discharge from the urethral opening at the end of urination or when the stool is strained, which is medically called white urine.
3. Other symptoms. Decreased sexual function, premature ejaculation, insomnia, irritability, anxiety, etc. These are all symptoms of prostatitis.
Prostatitis cannot be judged by the frequency and urgency of urination alone. In general, chronic prostatitis can indeed be initially judged by specific symptoms. However, to diagnose chronic prostatitis, the following series of tests are required.
1. Physical examination: The doctor will perform a digital rectal examination on the patient, touch the prostate, and determine whether the prostate is swollen and tender to decide on whether the patient is infected with prostatitis.
2. Blood and urine routine examination: This test can detect whether the patient's blood and urine are abnormal to determine the type of pathogenic bacteria that the patient is infected with prostatitis.
3. Prostatic fluid examination: This examination can help doctors detect prostatic fluid to determine whether the patient is infected with prostatitis. Prostatic fluid examination mainly includes a routine examination of prostatic fluid and bacterial culture of prostatic fluid. Chronic prostatitis can be considered if the number of white blood cells in the prostatic fluid is more than 10/HP and the number of lecithin bodies is reduced. Bacterial prostatitis can be diagnosed if the prostatic fluid culture is positive for bacteria.
4. Color Doppler examination. Prostate color ultrasound (especially transrectal prostate color ultrasound) can accurately understand the size and structure of the prostate, whether there are inflammatory changes, and whether there are lumps, nodules, calcifications, etc.
5. Auxiliary inspection. Such examinations include B-ultrasound, urinary flow rate, urodynamics, cystourethroscopy, prostate puncture, etc.
To sum up, the above are all commonly used examinations for patients with prostatitis, but not every patient needs to do all the examinations. Patients with more definite characteristics are easier to be diagnosed, while patients with unclear characteristics and difficult to diagnose may need to choose more examination items. Doctors will choose according to the patient's condition.
When a patient is diagnosed with prostatitis, antibacterial drugs are generally used for antibacterial treatment. Physical therapy, such as prostatitis massage, can also be used in the early days. Medications commonly used in treatment Most doctors prescribe antibiotics, in addition to some anti-inflammatory and pain relievers to relieve symptoms.
In addition to the above-mentioned western medicine treatment, ancient Chinese medicine in my country also has good results in treatment, such as the traditional Chinese medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill that has been widely used in clinical practice in recent years. It has diuretic and anti-inflammatory properties and can effectively cure prostatitis.
The prostate is a relatively fragile part. If men ignore their diet and living habits in daily life, it is likely to cause damage to the prostate and kidneys, resulting in prostatitis. To protect the prostate, men must pay more attention to their diet and at the same time, remember to strengthen their exercise.
