Digital rectal examination and prostatitis
When you have prostatitis, someone may recommend a prostate massage to you. What is a prostate massage?
You might be wondering, the prostate gland is in the body, so how do you massage it? In fact, you can use your fingers to touch the prostate through your anus to perform a massage-like action. Since the prostate can be touched with a finger, a digital rectal examination can also be used to detect prostatitis.
Digital rectal examination can detect whether the prostate is normal, and there may be tenderness, fullness, swelling or uneven hardness. But you can't tell the exact condition of your prostatitis on a digital rectal examination alone. That's when you need other scientific methods. One of the most common is the B-ultrasound test.
When doing B-ultrasound test, it shows that the boundary of prostate tissue is not clear and disordered, which implies the emergence of prostatitis. This is also the most convenient examination method of prostatitis.
Prostatic fluid examination is also often used in clinical practice. Prostatitis can be diagnosed when white blood cells in the prostatic fluid are more than 10 in high magnification microscope and lecithin corpuscles are reduced.

At the same time, the bacterial culture is needed, which can make a clear diagnosis and classification of chronic prostatitis. For example, if the prostatitis fluid bacterial culture result is positive, then the disease is the chronic bacterial prostatitis, on the contrary, it is chronic non-bacterial prostatitis.
After suffering from prostatitis, patients will have changes in urination and urethral secretions, and they will suffer from pain in the perineum, lower abdomen and lumbosacral area, as well as sexual dysfunction and neurological symptoms. So it is needed to be treated in time.
Usually, the herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill is often used for patients with prostatitis, especially those with chronic prostatitis. No matter it is bacterial or non-bacterial, the herbal medicine can work well on improving male symptoms and reinforce their body recovery. It features no side effects, so it is a safe and reasonable formula for male urogenital health.
By the way, some seemingly harmless habits can be harmful to the prostate gland, such as sitting too long, staying up late, smoking, drinking too much, eating spicy food, etc. Long-term pressure and stimulation on the perineum can affect the blood and lymph circulation of the prostate gland.
These habits can give rise to prostatitis and aggravate the related symptoms as time goes by, and will make prostatitis lingering, seriously influencing males’ life and work. So you should avoid these things as far as possible during and after the treatment.
