Prostate enlargement is the most common disorder of the urinary tract. This complaint occurs mostly in the elderly people.




What is Prostate Gland?

The prostate is a walnut-sized gland that forms part of the male reproductive system. The gland is made of two lobes or regions, enclosed by an outer layer of tissue. The prostate is located in front of the rectum and just below the bladder, where urine is stored. The prostate also surrounds the urethra, the canal through which urine passes out of the body. Its function is to squeeze fluid into the urethra while sperm moves during sexual climax.

Why does it enlarge?

AIt is common for the prostate gland to become larger as the age advances. Though the prostate continues to grow during most of man's life, the enlargement doesn't usually cause problems until late in life. Prostate enlargement shows symptoms at the age between 40s and 60s.

As the prostate enlarges, the surrounding capsule stops it from expanding, causing the gland to press against the urethra like a clamp on a garden hose. The bladder wall becomes thicker and irritable. The bladder begins to contract even when it contains small amounts of urine, causing more frequent urination. As the bladder weakens, it loses the ability to empty itself and urine remains behind. This narrowing of the urethra and partial emptying of the bladder cause many of the associated problems.

Throughout their lives men produce testosterone, an important male hormone and small amounts of oestrogen, the female hormone. As men age, the amount of active testosterone in the blood decreases, leaving a higher proportion of oestrogen. Research studies suggests that prostate enlargement may occur because the higher amount of oestrogen within the gland increases the activity of substances that promote cell growth.

Another study focuses on dihydrotestosterone, a substance derived from testosterone in the prostate, which may helps to control its growth. Some research has indicated that even with a drop in the blood testosterone level, older men continue to produce and accumulate high levels of dihydrotestosterone in the prostate. The accumulation of this substance may encourage the growth of cells.

What are the symptoms?

Many symptoms starting from obstruction of the urethra and gradual loss of bladder function results in incomplete emptying of the bladder. Most common ones involve changes or problems with urination. The sufferer have a hesitant, interrupted and weak stream. He may have urgency and leaking or dribbling with more frequent urination, especially at night.

Gradually the obstruction intensifies with the enlargement. Sometimes a man may not know if he has any obstruction until he suddenly finds himself unable to urinate. This condition is called Acute Urinary Retention and strain on the bladder can lead to urinary tract infections, bladder or kidney damage, bladder stones and incontinence.

What treatment is advisable?

Prostate enlargement can be easily detected by ultra sonogram study. The report will give proof of prostate enlargement with residual urine. Blood test PSA will rule out the intensity of lesion. Homoeopathy medicines has helped many patients to overcome this problem. Like the other applications for cells proliferation it has cured many other cases also. Homoeopathy medicines are clinically proved and cured many illnesses after dissolving masses like Warts, Papilloma, Lipoma, PCOD, Fibroid, Thyroid swellings etc. Since these applications have given wonderful results, we are now dragged more towards clinical interpretation and inspired to treat cancer also. Many of my colleagues and I have been successful.
