Prostatitis is inflammation of the prostate gland. The inflammation can be due to an infection as well as other various causes. Ten to twelve percent of all men experience prostatitis symptoms.

Frequently Asked Questions on Prostatitis

What is the Prostate Gland?

Prostate gland is a sexual gland. The size of a prostate and located below your urinary bladder, it is the producer of your ejaculation. Apart from facilitating the ejaculation, it produces secretions to allow safe passage of the sperm into the female sexual tract. It also plays an intricate part in the continence mechanism.

One of the central key organs apart from maybe the penis and the brain for a proper sexual function without doubt!

Most common symptoms of prostatitis

Some of the symptoms that may be present with chronic prostatitis are tendency to urinate frequently, getting up to urinate at night, feeling as if the bladder is not empty even after urination, pain in the abdomen area especially between testicles and anus, painful ejaculation, lower back pain and pain in the kidneys.

What is benign prostate hypertrophy?

Enlargement of the prostate due to the net increase in the number of cells in the prostate gland. The resultant enlargement causes the urethra or pee pipe to get compressed leading to urinary problems and potential urinary tract infections. Usually age dependent disease affecting a large number of male population.

What is prostate inflammation?

Prostate inflammation can be acute or chronic. Acute prostatitis is a urology emergency and requires hospitalization and intravenous antibiotic therapy and resuscitation. The commonest cause of prostatitis we see in clinical practice is chronic prostatitis and that too the non-bacterial type meaning the cause of inflammation is not an infection but likely some form of injury.

What is the treatment for prostatitis?

Treatment depends on how bothered the patient is with the symptoms of the enlarged prostate. Various lifestyle modifications, oral mediations like alpha-blockers, 5 alpha reductase inhibitors, PDE5 inhibitors or Transurethral surgery are the most commonly used treatments. Surgery is recommended for recurrent and complicated prostatitis.

Is prostatitis life threatening?

Acute prostatitis can be a life-threatening condition and should be treated in an emergency setting. Some medications used to treat chronic prostatitis have side effects, such as headaches or low blood pressure. Complications of untreated prostatitis can be serious or even life threatening in some cases.

Can Shockwave Therapy be used for prostatitis?

The good news is YES! As controversial as it may sound, in selected patients with prostate enlargement, bothersome urinary tract symptoms and those with clinically obvious prostate inflammation, shockwave therapy offers hope for cure without having to risk the side effects of long-term medications and even surgery. Caveat is that mediations and surgery remain the gold standard forms of treatment at the current time but shockwaves offer a scientific, safe and effect alternative based on our strict protocols of treatment.

The treatment involves between 10- 20 shockwave therapies depending on the stage of disease. The usual cycle is 2 treatment sessions every week.

When it comes to urological ailments or sexual disorders, men are less open to seek medical care at the onset. This is due to various factors linked to lack of awareness, social stigma, and the belief that men’s health is age-related. At UROHEAL, are committed to change this and make urological issues in men more mainstream – leading to faster diagnosis and better treatment

Just like we go for a regular checkups for our heart, blood pressure, diabetes etc. we need to check for urological health regularly; especially when we are above 40 years of age. This can prevent complications later and help us to lead a normal, active, and fulfilling life as we grow older. Men’s Health Screening can save lives. We have collaborated with reputed hospitals to provide Men's Health Screening at affordable costs

We need to keep ourselves updated on the common ailments and diseases which can affect us. By knowing about them and the treatment options available to all of us we would be in a better position to cope, if we ever get affected. At UROHEAL we are continuously encouraging our patients and the society at large to keep themselves updated on Men’s Health though our website, social media pages and public forums. To keep updated on our blog posts please follow us on Facebook.

    Dr. Datesh Daneshwar

    FRCS (Urology) (Glasgow) - Consultant Urologist & Robotic Surgeon

    A man on a mission to fight against the social stigma against men’s sexual health for over 2 decades. "Imagine a successful man, a loving husband; a caring father, god forbid if he develops a heart condition, he immediately gets the full support and sympathy of his family and friends. However, if the same person develops urological issues, he has to deal with it completely by himself for the fear of being labeled an ‘impotent’ or ‘sexually-incompetent’ person. This is so unfair, especially in today’s day and age, when we are denouncing every social stigma and challenging them in every field. Nobody should suffer in SILENCE"
