Q: 

Shriveled Prostate

A: Jamie, there are a number of diseases that can affect the prostate gland.  The most common of these are prostatitis, benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) and prostate cancer.  Some of the symptoms can be quite similar.  However, BPH occurs in older men and is characterized by an enlarged prostate gland secondary to gradual natural growth of the gland as a man ages.  Prostate cancer is very rare under age 40 and the gland can be of varying size but typically demonstrates an area(s) of increased firmness.  prostatitis can occur in men of all ages but is by far the most common cause of prostate symptoms in younger men like your husband.  The prostate has a...

Q: 

What Is prostatitis?

A: prostatitis is a disease of the prostate gland. This disease can cause groin pain, painful urination, and related symptoms. The prostate gland is about the size and shape of a walnut and is located directly below the bladder in men, and it also surrounds the urethra.. prostatitis does not refer to a single condition, but instead, it references an entire group of disorders that have related symptoms. Roughly five to ten percent of all cases are related to bacterial infections and can be treated effectively. The more common forms of prostatitis are more difficult to diagnose and treat. Medications can help manage the symptoms, and research is...

Q: 

Cipro & prostatitis

A: Brian, most infections of the genitourinary tract respond to proper antibiotics in 1-2 days, the symptoms are gone in 2-4 days and the course of antibiotics is 3-7 days.  However, with prostatitis it may take a few extra days to become asymptomatic. Furthermore, prostatitis is best treated for 4 weeks as it takes longer to clear the infection from the prostate gland than from other areas.  Shorter courses, have a much greater likelihood of recurrent symptoms.  To follow is some information I have put together on prostatitis that I hope you will find informative. Inflammation of the prostate gland is called prostatitis....
Q: 

congested prostate

A: Carmine, a congested prostate is a very common condition. During sexual arousal the prostate gland manufactures fluid that accounts for about 2/3 of the volume of ejaculate.  The seminal vesicles are paired structures located behind the prostate gland that also manufacture fluid.  Sperm from the testicles (which account for only 1-2% of the semen) travel up a series of tubes (epididymis and vas deferens) on each side to join the seminal vesicles forming the paired ejaculatory ducts.  These structures empty into the prostatic portion of the urethra.  At the time of ejaculation, prostatic fluid is discharged into the urethra (urinary canal) where it mixes with discharge from the ejaculatory ducts forming the semen.  The semen volume is in the 2-6 cc range....

Q: 

What Is Nonbacterial prostatitis?

A: Nonbacterial prostatitis is a medical disorder that causes inflammation of the prostate gland. The condition is most common in men between the ages of 15 and 40, though doctors are unsure of its exact causes. A man with nonbacterial prostatitis may experience pain when urinating or ejaculating, frequent urges to urinate, and chronic soreness in the groin area.

Q: 

What is the diagnosis of a person who have a prostate cancer?

A: I think it is prognosis that u r asking becoz prostatic cancer itself is dignosis. Prognosis is that this cancer is usually not very aggressive & if dignosed in earlier stage & proper surgery ( orchiectomy ) & hormone thery & chemotherypy statrd the 5 yr survival rate is quite ggod. I think zoya''s answer is the best. If you mean the prognosis, then if it has been discovered and treated in time, it''s quite good actually. There are two ways that I know of that it is treated, one is through surgery, where the prostate is removed, or a non invasive (relatively speaking) procedure is to insert a tiny radioactive particle into the prostate, which destroys it and the cancer from the inside out. It is a slow moving cancer, and as zoya said, not aggressive, but like all cancers, it must be found...
