Prostate adenoma is more harmless disease like prostate cancer, but no less insidious. Statistically the most common diseases of the genitourinary system, which awaits man after 45 years. Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) will bring a lot of suffering. Effective in the treatment of BPH in men medication drug natural.
What is BPH and its symptoms
BPH is expressed in uncontrolled growth of the prostate tissue. The result is a tumor. And it's not the "original" tissue, and an alien mutated.
Direction of development of this tumor can be different than the inside of the prostate, and its exterior walls. Depending on the direction of growth of the adenoma can cause problems with urination, or can cause.
Stats as follows:
- More than 60% of men over 60 years have histological features of the adenoma;
- More than 40% have clinical symptoms;
- 20% of men feel the decline in quality of life in the context of urination.
Complete recovery, you need to know exactly what treatment. Symptoms of adenoma and prostate cancer are largely similar. In order to remove the cancer, you need to go to a few studies:
- Take the test for total and free PSA;
- Is done prostate;
- Undergo ultrasound;
- To do a biopsy, with the goal of sampling biological material for histological testing.
The symptoms of BPH
The first signs of developing pathology is a difficult process of the outflow of urine. They can manifest in different ways, but often in many for the and in the evening around urination. This can be present pain. The characteristic symptom of adenoma – repeated night trips to the toilet.
In some cases, men have to Wake up at least 7 times.
All of this is harmful to the emotional and physiological state of the patient. Chronic sleep deprivation leads to depression, cause systematic fatigue. The patient may experience irritability, which directly affects the quality of communication with others.
The most serious complication is the development of adenoma, acute urinary retention, which is expressed in the impossibility of spontaneous urination, despite the strong desire for him. In this regard, the bubbles begin to accumulate in the urine. His number can be 3 liters. Output two: catheterization, but only when it is impossible to hole in the lower part of the abdomen.
Repeated illness, the man is concerned about the severe pain in the lower abdomen, urine and semen may occur in the blood. All of this can be scary, and people are starting to look for an opportunity to get rid of the disease. While men often ignored the need to visit the clinic and talk to the doctor in extreme and advanced cases.
Methods of treatment of prostate adenoma
There are only three ways to get rid of the adenoma.
- Medical treatment;
- Operative (surgical) intervention;
- Herbal remedies.
Actually there is one danger: it is possible to incorrectly select a recipe, or it is invalid, corrupted data preparation, the dosage and schedule of administration (traditional medicine). During treatment with this medicine the pathological process develops. And valuable time is wasted.
Better not to tempt fate and immediately began to practice the tested drugs. However, there are some "pitfalls".
In order to avoid complications, you should consult a doctor. An accurate diagnosis, it is enough to do three things:
- Independently visit the nearest lab and get tested DOG;
- Visit the nearest health center and do an ultrasound of the prostate;
- Come to the clinic residence or commercial medical institution and consultation of the urologist, the doctor providing the research data.
Most of the men refused the idea to go to the doctor for possible treatments of rectal palpation. According to the medical standards for urological hour front desk, it is a mandatory method of research to doubt the pathology of the prostate.
But there are many doctors who understand little informative palpation, refuse it and immediately send the patient TRUS (sampling of biological material with a simultaneous ultrasound examination). As a result, this procedure allows us to establish an accurate diagnosis.
Medical treatment of the adenoma
Prostate adenoma is a steadily progressive disease. Growth of benign tumors in the standard, but the speed of the process can be different. With the age of the patient increases the risk of various complications. At the beginning of the development of the disease the most effective drug treatment, which includes taking prescribed medications. It is guaranteed to eliminate violations of the process of urination.
Currently, there are three groups of medications to treat BPH:
- Inhibitors of 5-alpha-reductase;
- Remedies based on natural ingredients: herbal remedies.
The choice of therapeutic technique depends on two features of the disease: its stages and the complexity of the passage. The effect of drugs aimed at eliminating the causes and symptoms of this insidious disease.
Partner treatment often prescribe probiotics (drugs and dietary Supplements that contain live micro-culture). These remedies help to restore the intestinal flora, which leads to improved immunity.
It is important to understand that alpha-blockers can only remove the symptoms of BPH. And inhibitors of 5-alpha-reductase the effect of the etiology of this disease. Therefore, the drugs of the first group of fast helps to eliminate pain in the lower abdomen and spasms. And drugs of the second group, eliminate the cause, treat.
Alpha-blockers in the treatment of BPH
Alpha-blockers are effective medications that can quickly eliminate the symptoms of the pathological processes of the prostate. But just deal with the symptoms and the cause of the disease.
The help of these preparations is expressed in muscle relaxation of the prostate and bladder, which promotes the free flow of urine. In this case, the tumor alpha-blockers do not affect. They can't reduce the size of the tumor or stop its growth.
The effect of alpha-blockers.
A significant role in the functioning of the genitourinary system in men to transfer the alpha-adrenergic receptors of the bladder neck and proximal urethra calving. There are three types of receptors:
- Alpha-1-adrenergic receptors. Located in the prostate, urethra, bladder. The function of these receptors is the regulation of the smooth muscle of the prostate base and the bladder neck, seminal vesicles and seed production channels.
- Alpha-1B-adrenoceptors. Located in blood vessels and control the tonus of the arteries when the redistribution of blood. The number of receptors increases with age.
- Alpha-1D-adrenergic receptors. Located in the bladder, spinal cord, and sinuses. These receptors is not fully understood, but we know that they have a significant role in the work of the muscles of the bladder.
Inhibitors of 5-alpha-reductase: how and why to help
The second group of medicines for the treatment of BPH inhibitors (inhibit) 5-alpha-reductase. This protein association and there are two form of its enzymes (isoenzymes): 5-alpha-reductase type I and type II.
Isozymes of the first type is mainly concentrated in the liver tissue, hair follicles, skin. Isozymes of the second type in the prostate. In particular, nuclei of the stroma cells. Affect a benign swelling of the prostate necessary to inhibitors of 5-alpha-reductase type II.
Possible reactions to inhibitors of 5-alpha-reductase:
- Potency disorders;
- Heart palpitations;
Side effects of medications can be used to express a variety of disorders of the genitourinary system.
Often has varying degrees of severity and pain in the testicles, the Breasts. There are cases where the sperm quality, rarely male infertility.
The effectiveness of inhibitors of 5-alpha-reductase
Because these drugs affect the cause of the disease, before full recovery takes a lot of time. Depending on the size of benign tumors, and the speed of its progression, it is necessary 5 months to 1 year.
The initial stage of adenoma inhibitors of 5-alpha-reductase is able to completely prevent the development of tumors and later remove it. On average, these remedies can reduce the index of the symptoms of adenoma 3 points on a scale of AAU.
Herbal medicines for the treatment of adenoma
Herbs are more preventive than corrective. They can help in the early stages of the disease. This all-natural remedy. Help quickly, but the cause of the pathology can not be removed.
All of the assets, which are pumpkin seeds, guaranteed to provide assistance in the initial stage of pathological processes in the prostate gland.
Decoctions of the leaves of the filbert or hazel, also help to cope with minor disorders of the genitourinary system. To prepare healing means simply: you will need 1 tablespoon of plants pour 1 Cup boiling water. Infuse for 30-40 minutes. Take 1/3 Cup 3 times a day.
Useful to prostate turn. A decoction of this herb can be taken in tea, several times a day. The effect is slow to show themselves: urination becomes easy and painless. A decoction of sloe prepared as follows: a tablespoon of herbs to brew 1 liter of boiling water. Closed all night. Take during the day.
Effective stagnation in the pelvic area and the growth of the prostate tissue nettle. This reflects the growing plant can provide good help in the early stages of the disease and stop the growth of tumor.
A combination of drugs
A relatively new therapeutic tool, with two main active ingredients: finasteride and tamsulosin. This medication can rapidly eliminate the symptoms of BPH, at the same time the effect of the cause of the disease. But there is a wide range of contraindications and side effects that affect the popularity of this drug in clinical practice.
A successful outcome requires continuous therapeutic control. You must pass the research reveals the extent to which exposure to a particular drug.
Itself is impossible to predict the effect on the body pills. Only a doctor can properly assess all the risks. Self-medication is fraught with serious complications. Therefore, when the first signs of BPH are advised to contact the urologist.
