How does antihistamines make benign prostatic hyperplasia worse?


If you have BPH, try NOT to take medications such as antihistamines, diuretics, decongestants, antispasmodics, tranquilizers and certain types of antidepressants. These can weaken the bladder muscle or narrow the opening of the prostate and worsen the BPH symptoms.  (+ info)

What medicine to take for bph(Benign prostatic hyperplasia)?


none, unless you are having problems. meds that shrink the prostate contain estrogens, which have other issues in a male body. yes, they shrink the prostate, but can also cause sexual problems or developing breast tissue. doctors only use them in cases where the enlarged gland is obstructing urine flow or causing pain. also, dont assume BPH if it isnt a doctor saying that. you can't diagnose yourself safely. dont assume it is one thing or another, because the same symptoms can be prostate cancer or other issues.  (+ info)

from one year after doing the bathroom and in between latrine precum (prostatic)liquid drop from penis?

The basis of this question is "Is Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia Disease an acute or chronic disease?"?


I am not quite clear sure how to distungish an acute disease and what is a chronic disease ...i know that acute diseases are short term and chronic disease are long term ..simply...thank you in advance
----------

Acute conditions are severe and sudden in onset. A chronic condition is a long developing condition where symptoms may worsen over time. BPHD is a chronic condition. If the enlargement causes the man to be unable to void urine, he can develop acute urinary retention as a result. The BPHD may not need treatment, but the urinary retention will. The man will still have BPHD, though, unless you remove the prostate- even if you do successfully treat the retention problem. Asthma is a chronic condition, the asthma attack is an acute problem. Hope this clears it for you.  (+ info)

Does anyone know of research linking vasectomy with prostatic hypertrophy?


Obviously sperm could be carrying a factor from the epididymus to the prostate. How many times have we heard in the past that surgery was benign (e.g. tubal ligation tonsillectomy et al) only to find out decades later that there are clinical consequences.

Could I please hear from somebody who knows what they're talking about. Any Ph.D students out there??
----------

Vasectomy has broad effects on many parts of the male urogenital system. The blocked flow of sperm causes leakage of sperm and an autoimmune response develops. This can cause sperm granulomas (tender areas of chronic inflammation that may or may not resolve with time). In addition there are specific medical studies on the semen of men after vasectomy showing effects on prostatic secretory function and reduction in semen volume. While this may not cause prostatic hypertrophy, there is some question as to whether vasectomy may increase the risk of prostate cancer:

A retrospective cohort analysis of men aged 25-49 who had had a vasectomy between 1970 and 1986 did not find a link between vasectomy and an increased incidence in prostate cancer. In another retrospective study, 96 of 14,607 men who had had a vasectomy between 1976 and 1978 developed prostate cancer. In a prospective study conducted between 1986 and 1990, 300 of 10,500 men aged 40-75 who had had a vasectomy developed prostate cancer. In the latter two studies, vasectomy was found to be associated with an increased risk of prostate cancer, especially as time since vasectomy increased. This increased risk remained even when one controlled for lifestyle variables (both studies) and body mass index and area of residence (prospective study). The strengths of these studies are large sample sizes and controlling for lifestyle variables. The studies indicate that vasectomy may cause prostate cancer. Small increases in circulating androgen levels, which follow vasectomy, may facilitate prostate cancer development. The immune response to sperm antigens after vasectomy may promote tumor growth by blocking antibodies or tumor suppressor cells by sperm antigens. The vasectomy may keep inhibitors of cancer enhancing growth factors from reaching the prostate, thereby promoting prostate cancer. After vasectomy, there may be a reduced secretory rate of prostatic fluid, prolonging exposure to carcinogenic factors in this fluid.

Urology as a field seems to have written off vasectomy as unlikely to increase the risk of prostate cancer...They can not find otherwise. They vasectomize 500,000 men a year. If a link were provable, it would clearly affect vasectomy acceptance...

As for all vasectomy detractors being "religious organizations" with a pro-life agenda as the other post implies - Please. Grow up. I am Buddhist. A religion with no deity and no dogma regarding vasectomy. I am a proponent of fully informed consent for vasectomy, not the platitudinous baloney that most men are told about the procedure.

Vasectomy has some real health risks:
1) the risk of chronic testicular pain (10% any pain, 2 to 5% severe or affecting sexual function)
2) a WEAK link to an increase in prostate cancer risk

Prostatic hypertrophy is not known to be associated with vasectomy.  (+ info)

How benign prostatic hypertrophy can be treated ?


In my case they followed a wait and see strategy with six monthly check ups.  (+ info)

whats the pathophysiology of benign prostatic hyperplasia ?


whats the pathophysiology of benign prostatic hyperplasia? it is more easier for me to understand a diagramed pathophysiology of the said disease.. but narrative form is ok.. thanks for helping..

jazz- Because the answer to your question is very long, I'll try to share some important features. The male prostate gland is located below the bladder. The seminal vesicles (containing sperm in semen) are located posterior to the prostate. The urethra exits from the bladder and goes through the prostate before exiting to the penile urethra (pee hoile).

The normal prostate is composed of glands and stroma. The glands are lined mucin-secreting epithelium. The fibromuscular stroma between the glands accounts for about half of the volume of the prostate. A prostate is about the size of a walnut.

Acute prostatitis (inflammation) is not common. Causative agents include bacteria similar to those causing urinary tract infections, as well as Neisseria gonorrheae. A related complication of prostatic abscess is uncommon. The edema and slight enlargement of the prostate with acute inflammation do not generally cause major symptoms, but may be associated with some pain on urination.

Chronic prostatitis may follow acute prostatitis. In some cases, bacteria can be cultured from urine that indicate the cause. In other cases, chlamydial organisms may be the cause. In some cases, no organism can be identified as a cause. Symptoms of painful urination along with low grade pelvic pain or low back pain may be present.

Nodular prostatic hyperplasia ((enlargement termed benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH) is a common condition as men age. Perhaps a fourth of men have some degree of hyperplasia by the fifth decade of life. By the eighth decade, over 90% of males will have prostatic hyperplasia. However, in only a minority of cases (about 10%) will this hyperplasia be symptomatic and severe enough to require surgical or medical therapy.  (+ info)

whats d best medicine for benign prostatic hyperplasia?


i just had TURP last week of jan this year. no evidence of malignancy is seen on pathology report. im taking PROSCAR
daily (finesteride) Is it enough?
----------

The best medicine is the one that works for you. If you are having problems with the dosage or the medication, you should be talking to the doctor who prescribed it not strangers on the Internet. Why is your ativar a female?  (+ info)
