Prostate Conditions Treatment in Hyderabad

Prostate Gland Problems

The prostate gland is a walnut-sized male reproductive organ situated at the bottom of the urinary bladder. Through it runs the urethra- a small tube that passes urine and semen out of the penis. The prostate gland produces an alkaline fluid that helps nourish the sperm. The fluid leaves the urethra out of the penis as an ejaculate (semen).

There are two main growth spurts of the prostate- one at the time of puberty (when it weighs about 20 grams) and the other in adulthood (when a man is in his thirties).

Unfortunately, around 25% of men who reach their mid-age or are aged above 55 years have a prostate condition. The percentage increases to 50% for men who are aged around 70 years or older. Prostate conditions not only affect people assigned male at birth but even transgender women and inters-e-x people who have a prostate. If you are suffering from any type of prostate diseases or condition, visit the best prostate treatment doctor in Hyderabad at Sree Nandaka Advanced Surgery Hospital.

Causes of Prostate Conditions

The cause of prostate condition may be an infection, inflammation, or an enlargement.

The definite cause of Benign prostatic hyperplasia or enlargement of the prostate include changes in the male s-e-x hormone levels in older men, inflammation, aging, and fibrosis. Fibrosis refers to the extra tissue formation around the prostate and their thickening and stiffening. Aged men are at higher risk of having an enlarged prostate.

The cause of prostatitis depends upon whether one is having an infection or inflammation of the prostate. Mostly, the cause of prostatitis is not known to the doctor. Usually, acute prostatitis is caused by a bacterial infection. The potential causes of chronic prostatitis or prostate inflammation include chemicals in the urine, issues with the pelvic floor muscles, prolonged anxiety issues, s-e-xual abuse, nerve damage in the pelvic region, and the response of the body to previous urinary tract infections. Prostatitis is mostly seen in young men aged between 30 and 50 years.

Treatment for Prostate Conditions

The treatment of the prostate condition depends upon an underlying problem- an infection, inflammation, or an enlargement of the prostate.

For bacterial prostatitis, the best urologist in Hyderabad provides the patient with prescription antibiotics to kill the bacteria causing infection of the prostate. Antibiotic treatment can help clear the acute prostate infection. The antibiotics work best when taken with plenty of fluids and a healthy diet.

In the case of chronic prostatitis, the doctor recommends treatments that help reduce the prolonged pain, discomfort, and inflammation of the prostate. The doctor may prescribe medications called alpha-blockers to relax the prostate and bladder muscles. Other suggested treatments include warm baths, physical therapy, and relaxation exercises.

To treat Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, the doctor does watchful waiting, advises some lifestyle changes, prescribes medicines, or recommends surgery. Watchful waiting is done when the symptoms of BPH are not bothersome and the patient chooses to live with them. The doctor recommends regular check-ups of the prostate to ensure that its condition is not worsening. As soon as the patient decides to get treated, he can choose the treatment option.

For mild cases of BPH, the doctor recommends the patient drink less fluids before bedtime or go outside; avoid caffeinated or alcoholic drinks; avoid intake of medicines that affect the bladder such as cold and allergy medicines; and change the timing of taking some medications like diuretics or those that treat hypertension.

The best doctor for prostate surgery in Hyderabad may prescribe certain medications that stop the prostate enlargement or shrink the prostate in some men or provide alpha-blockers to relax the prostate and bladder muscles. For severe cases of BPH, the doctor recommends the patient for surgery to shrink the prostate or to remove the prostate. These surgeries are usually transurethral, which means performed through the urethra.
