Adenoma of the prostate Diseases
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) - not a malignant proliferation of the prostate. In normal prostate is actively growing during puberty, and then its size remains constant for a long time. Pathological growth of cancer usually begins around the age of 40 years. Approximately 60% of men older than 60 years and about 80% over 80 have signs of BPH.
It is important to remember that the symptoms of BPH are not a consequence of normal aging process, but are manifestations of the disease, which needs to be treated!
Flow of prostate adenoma is divided into three stages:
- The first stage or the stage precursors. At this stage there are early signs of urination. Increase in frequency of urination at night. A patient has to get up several times at night to urinate. Stream of urine becomes sluggish and urinating may end drops. Sometimes the urge for urination day is so strong that the patient can not long postpone urination and forced to flee to the toilet. In the first stage of the bladder can not empty completely, the residual urine is not due to compensatory increase of the derisory - muscles, expelling urine from the bladder. Gradually decomposition occurs and the disease passes into the second stage. Duration of this stage from one year to 15 years.
- In the second stage of the disease is becoming increasingly difficult to urinate. Stream of urine becomes more sluggish, falling steeply, urination may be interrupted drip urine. In order to help the patient must make an effort. Sometimes urination can complete only a few stages. Muscle tissue of the bladder becomes thinner, the bladder is stretched, it accumulates residual urine. Any hypothermia, stress errors in diet, concomitant diseases may lead to a complete overlap of the urethra and acute urinary retention. This urine collects in the bladder, unable to urinate. The patient experienced severe abdominal pain. In this case, remove the urine from the bladder through a catheter. Sometimes the amount of urine reaches the remote a few liters. Acute urinary retention may occur at any stage of the disease. The further course of the disease leads to complications associated with the stagnation of urine in the bladder. There comes the next stage of the disease.
- In the third stage of the disease bladder is stretched, its volume has increased dramatically. Number of residual urine up to two liters. This leads to increased pressure in the ureter and kidney, along with the stagnation of urine leads to complications from kidney disease. General weakness, thirst, violations of the gastrointestinal tract. Increased pressure and hyperinflate bladder wall resulted in damage to the veins of the bladder, which manifests the appearance of blood in the urine. Due to stagnation of urine in the bladder can easily develop an infection, there cystitis. The same stagnation of urine promotes the formation of stones in the urinary bladder.
