BPH - the main symptoms:
Adenoma of the prostate (prostate adenoma) is inherently somewhat outdated term, and therefore is used today in a slightly different form - in the form of benign prostatic hyperplasia. Adenoma of the prostate, the symptoms of which will be discussed below, it is more familiar in this its definition. It is characterized by the appearance of a small nodule disease (perhaps as few knots), which is gradually exposed to increasing over time. The peculiarity of this disease is that, unlike the area of cancer, prostatic adenoma is a benign formation.
BPH - one of the most common "male" disease, for those men, whose age exceeded the mark of 50 years. The very definition of the disease may sound like a convention, because the widening exposed not just the prostate gland, as might be expected, but only a small gland, belonging to the submucosal layer of the neck of the bladder, due to which three distinctive island formed - lacunar group of two lateral and -tservikalnaya group of one rear. On this basis, it would be better to define the disease as adenomas lacunar glands.
Attempts to determine the functions that perform lacunar glands, clear results do not give. There is speculation as to the fact that these glands are responsible for the internal secretion, being relatively antagonicheskimi male gonads. The growth takes place at the time of occurrence of atrophic processes focus in the prostate gland that occurs to the period of the extinction of male sexual activity. When this occurs not only involvement in the process of tumor formation glandular tissue and connective tissue and muscle.
Thus, a tumor may be a result of not only adenomatous, and fibrotic or myoma. Adenomas also vary depending on their shapes being spherical, cylindrical or pear-shaped. They may consist, as we already mentioned as a single node and multiple. And varies its weight, which may be on the order of up to 10 grams, reaching 200 or more.
Depending on the structure and arrangement adenoma it can be represented in three varieties:
The tumor, penetrating into the bladder through the urethra passes through the deformed internal sphincter followed by violation of its functions.
Increasing to the rectal tumor, minor in violation of urination, but provokes the loss of contractile ability, inherent in the prostatic urethra, as a result of which it does not fully release the bladder.
The tumor in which the prostate is uniform seal due to the pressure exerted by it. Increasing tumor does not happen, it is therefore excludes such negative phenomena as the delay in the bladder of urine and violation of urination functions. This tumor is the most favorable option.
Symptoms of BPH
Previously listed features of disease tend to follow each other quite slow, due to the slow, in most cases, the development of adenomas. Often there are no symptoms at all, and the only manifestation of the disease becomes enlarged prostate. The manifestations of the disease symptoms may be of intermittent, in which can be observed the periodic improvements, then, accordingly, the deterioration.
Not all men who have indicated an enlarged prostate, experience symptoms of the disease, because the size of the prostate does not always determine the severity of its symptoms. With this in mind, a patient with a relatively large size of the prostate can not feel any symptoms, while the patient with relatively small sizes of the prostate may face very symptomatic disease.
The first symptoms of BPH use Avodart appear for the moment, because of which it loses the opportunity of free outflow from the bladder when the increase in the size of the prostate begins to significantly impede the process of outflow of urine. Due to this, there is a number of symptoms that are typical for the disease as a whole:
frequent urination at night;
the occurrence of immediate urge to urinate during the day;
weakening stream when urinating;
After completion of dripping urine voiding occurs.
Causes of disease
As for the causes of the disease, before the end of their nature is not clear. The main risk factor for the disease appears age, that is, the older the man, the greater becomes the risk of tumors for him. Young men are rarely faced with an adenoma, which is explained by the peculiarities of age-related changes in sexual endocrine settlement system due to hyperplasia lacunar glands.
