Symptoms of prostatitis - how to recognize the disease

malaise with prostatitis in men

One of Organs vital organs of men is the prostate.

The prostate sits above the bladder and promotes the production of sperm secretions.

Prostatitis has become younger in our time, as it appears suddenly in men, not only after the age of 30, but also in men aged 20 to 25 years old.

Therefore, if alarming symptoms characteristic of prostatitis appear, it is necessary to be examined by a doctor.

Symptoms of prostatitis vary depending on the form and stage of the disease.

Symptoms of acute prostatitis appear

  • general weakness of the body in the context of chills and fever;
  • pain when urinating with cut;
  • stubborn, bursting or sharp pains in the perineum radiating to the penis (head), scrotum, thigh, anus, lumbosacral region and pubis;
  • increasing violation of urination;
  • the presence of purulent secretion and blood in the urine;
  • disturbance of potency and erection;
  • male infertility.

The form of the disease depends on the nature of the pain. In chronic non-infectious prostatitis, persistent and painful pains occur constantly in different places.

Symptoms of non-infectious prostatitis appear

  • pain when urinating with a burning sensation at the end;
  • painful condition of the scrotum on touch;
  • frequent need to urinate;
  • sphincter tension.

Infectious prostatitis, including the chronic stage, especially with untreated sexually transmitted diseases, is characterized by burning pains that decrease with the use of antibiotics.

Symptoms of infectious prostatitis are:

  • decreased sexual activity, time of sexual intercourse and premature ejaculation;
  • increasing difficulty in urinating and defecating with secretion from the prostate;
  • general weakness, including drowsiness and chills.

With late treatment, it is possible to develop sepsis, chronic prostatitis, including prostate abscess, sexual disorders and psycho-emotional disorders.

Ignoring the symptoms of acute prostatitis leads to chronic illness. When an infection is introduced into the inflammatory process, especially in sexually transmitted diseases, the excretory ducts become inflamed at the back of the urethra and antiperistalsis occurs, which allows bacteria to freely enter the gland.

In addition, the infection is carried to the prostate in diseases such as colitis, paraproctitis, fissures in the posterior duct and through the lymphatic system and bloodstream.

After the first weak symptoms of acute prostatitis, with sedimentation and accumulation of pathogenic microorganisms, the acute phase turns into chronic prostatitis with temporary remission and acute stages.

Symptoms of chronic bacterial prostatitis appear

  • some decrease in sexual activity;
  • an increase or decrease in the duration of sexual intercourse;
  • possible premature ejaculation right at the beginning of sexual intercourse;
  • slight difficulty during urination and bowel movements;
  • periodic discomfort and burning sensation in the groin, urethra and perineum;
  • secretion of the prostate;
  • general weakness of the body, including drowsiness.

When alarming symptoms appear, every man needs to visit a urologist to study laboratory tests, prescribe an appropriate course of treatment and consultations.

The most alarming signs of suspected prostatitis are

  • cutting, pulling, pressure and rupture pains in the perineum, under the pubis, in the scrotum and urethra area;
  • problems when urinating: frequent urination with a small amount of urine;
  • problematic sexual intercourse, in which the amount of sperm decreases during ejaculation, orgasm sensations are weakened (become weak and short), erectile function is impaired, male infertility occurs due to insufficient ejaculation production, liquid sperm withprostate pus.
