Prostate adenoma is more harmless disease, like prostate cancer, but no less insidious. Statistically, the most common diseases of the genitourinary system, which awaits the men after 45 years. Prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) will bring a lot of suffering. Effective treatment of BPH in men drug drug in nature.
What is BPH and the symptoms
BPH-expressed in uncontrolled growth of the prostate tissue. The result is a tumor. But it's not "native" tissue, an alien mutated.
The direction of the development of this tumor can be different than the internal prostate, the external walls. Depending on the direction of the growth of the adenoma can cause problems with urination, or may not cause.
The statistics are the following:
- More than 60% of men over 60 years histological characteristics of adenoma;
- More than 40% of the clinical symptoms;
- 20% of men feel the decline in the quality of life related to urination.
The full recovery you need to know exactly what to treat. The symptoms of adenoma, prostate cancer is largely the same. In order to eliminate the cancer, you need to go to a couple of studies:
- The test is completely free PSA;
- Undergo digital rectal examination;
- Subjected to ultrasound;
- Histological examination with the aim of sampling the biological material for histology examination.
The symptoms of BPH
The first signs of the developing pathology is the difficulty that the process of the outflow of urine. They are also, obviously, in different ways, but often in the night urination. This can be present the pain. The characteristic symptoms of the adenoma – repeated night time trips to the toilet.
In some cases, the men have to get up at least 7 times.
This has a negative effect on the emotional and physiological condition of the patient. The chronic lack of sleep leads to depression caused by a systematic fatigue. The patient may have irritability, which directly affects the quality of communication with others.
The most serious complication of the formation of adenoma, acute urinary retention, which expressed the impossibility of spontaneous urination, despite the strong desire to be with him. In this regard, the bubbles begin to accumulate in the urine. The number can reach 3 liters. Two output: catheterization, but only if this is impossible, puncture the lower part of the abdominal wall.
Recurrent disease the men disturbed severe pain in the lower abdomen, urine, semen may appear in the blood. This can be, I'm not afraid, people start looking for the opportunity to get rid of the disease. While men often ignore to visit the clinic and talk to the doctor, the most extreme or advanced cases.
Methods of treatment of prostate adenoma
Only three ways to get rid of the adenoma.
- Drug therapy;
- Operative (surgical) intervention;
The self is still a danger: it is possible to incorrectly select the recipe or it'll be your fault, the fault data, the product dosing schedule administration (traditional medicine). During treatment with this medicine pathological process development. And precious time will be wasted.
It's better not to tempt fate, immediately begins to good practice for agents. However, there are some "pitfalls".
In order to avoid complications, you should consult a physician. The exact diagnosis, it is sufficient to do three things:
- Regardless of visit the nearest lab and the DOG;
- Visit the nearest health center, and ultrasound of the prostate;
- To come to the clinic, your residence, or commercial, health care institution, or consult a urologist, a doctor providing research data.
Most people reject the idea that the doctor on the possible treatments of rectal palpation. According to the health standards of urological reception of the binding method the research was the suspicion that the pathology of the prostate.
But there are many doctors who are understanding of little informative palpation, and immediately sent the patient to the TRUST (sampling of biological material with simultaneous ultrasound examination). The result of this procedure, the data allow us to create a precise diagnosis.
The medical treatment of the adenoma
Prostate adenoma is a constantly evolving disease. The growth of the benign tumors is constant, but the speed of the process may be different. The age of the patient increases the various complications. In the beginning, the development of the disease, the most effective drug for the treatment of which the prescribed medicinal products. Guaranteed to eliminate violations of the process of urination.
Currently, there are three groups of drugs for the treatment of BPH:
- Inhibitors, 5-alpha-reductase;
- Remedies based on natural ingredients: herbs.
The choice of the therapeutic method, that depends on the two characteristics of the disease: stage, as well as the complexity of the flow. The effect of drugs aimed at eliminating the causes of symptoms, this insidious disease.
As a companion treatment often prescribe probiotics (drugs, otherwise dietary Supplements, which are live micro-culture). These remedies to help restore the gut flora, which can result in increased immunity.
It is important to understand that alpha-blockers can eliminate only the symptoms of BPH. And inhibitors of 5-alpha-reductase effects on the etiology of this disease. Therefore, the drug the first group quickly to help eliminate the pain in the lower abdominal, cramps. Drugs and the second group, eliminates the reason for the treatment.
Alpha-blockers in the treatment of BPH
Alpha-blockers are effective medications quickly eliminate the symptoms of the pathological processes in the prostate. But precisely address the symptoms and not the cause of the disease.
With the help of these products, expressed as muscle relaxation of the prostate, the bladder, which contributes to the free flow of urine. In this case, the tumor alpha-blockers is not affected. They don't know how to reduce the size of the tumor or stop the growth.
The effect of alpha-blockers
A significant role in the functioning of the urogenital system in men divert alpha-adrenergic receptors in the bladder neck, proximal urethra parturition. Three types of receptors:
- Alpha-1A-adrenergic receptors. Located in the prostate, urethra, bladder. The function of these receptors in the regulation of the smooth muscles of the prostate base and the bladder neck, determining blisters, and the seed-producing channels.
- Alpha-1B-adrenoceptor. Located in blood vessels and control the tone of the arteries, when the redistribution of the blood. The receptor number increases with age.
- Alpha-1-adrenergic receptors. Located in the bladder, the spinal cord, and the respiratory system. The purpose of these receptors is not fully understood, but we know that they play a significant role in the work of the muscles of the bladder.
Inhibitors, 5-alpha-reductase: how it works, why help
The second group of drugs for the treatment of BPH inhibitors (blockers) of the 5-alpha-reductase. This protein coupling, two forms of enzymes (isoenzymes): 5-alpha-reductase of., and type II.
Isoenzymes the first type is concentrated in liver tissue, hair follicles, skin. Isoenzymes of the second type in the prostate. More specifically, the nuclei of stromal cells. Influence is a benign swelling of the prostate necessary inhibitors of 5-alpha-reductase type II.
Possible reactions to inhibitors of 5-alpha-reductase:
- Decreased libido;
- Potency disorders;
- Heart palpitations;
Side effects of the drugs can be expressed by the various diseases of the urogenital system.
There are often different degrees of severity, as well as pain in the testicles, the Breasts. There are cases of reduced 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 the benign tumors, and the speed of the progression, it is necessary 5 months to 1 year.
In the initial stages of the adenoma-inhibitors, 5-alpha-reductase is able to completely stop the development of tumors, and subsequently must be destroyed. On average, the remedies can reduce the index of symptoms of the adenoma by 3 points on the scale of the AAU.
The herbal medicines for the treatment of the adenoma
Herbs more than the prior healing. Help in the initial stages of the disease. This natural remedy. Help quickly, but the reason is that the pathologist is not able to eliminate.
Such funds, which include pumpkin seeds, guaranteed to provide assistance in the initial stages of the pathological processes in the prostate.
Decoction of the leaves of a peanut, or peanut, will help you cope with the minor disorders of the genitourinary system. To prepare healing means you simply just: 1 tbsp of plants pour 1 Cup of boiling water. Infuse for 30-40 minutes. Take 1/3 Cup 3 times a day.
Useful prostate. The decoction of this plant can be taken as a tea, several times a day. The effect will not be slow to show themselves: urination be easy, pain-free. The decoction of sloe prepared as follows: a tablespoon of herbs to brew 1 liter of boiling water. Insists that the whole night. During the day.
Effective the stagnation in the pelvic area and the growth of the prostate tissue the nettle. This is reflected in the growing plant is a good help in the initial stages of the disease, and stop the growth of the tumor.
The combination of meds
A relatively new therapeutic device, in which the two main active ingredients: finasteride, tamsulosin. This drug is able to quickly eliminate the symptoms of BPH, in parallel with effects on the cause of the disease. But there is a wide range of contraindications, side-effects, which affect the popularity of this drug in clinical practice.
A successful outcome requires continuous therapeutic control. You need to give the research revealed the extent of exposure to a particular drug.
You it is impossible to predict what will be the effect on the body pills. Only a doctor can adequately assess all the risks. Self-healing to be full of severe complications. Therefore, when the first signs of BPH recommend that you contact your urologist.
