I’m right here to talk with you on Prostate. The subject is deceptive. Is prostate strictly for males? Sure, ONLY males have prostate and ONLY males over 40 years however the healthcare enlightenment is for everybody. There isn’t a girl who doesn’t know a person 40 years and above, father, uncle, brother, son, buddy, neighbour, colleague…

Basically what I shall be doing at the moment is well being promotion. Accountable well being promotion should present three issues:

1. Data
2. Reassurance
3. A plan of motion.

Let me begin with a background on prostate well being.

Everybody has a pair of kidneys. The job of the kidney is to take away waste. It’s the LAWMA (waste administration firm) of your physique. On a regular basis your blood passes via the kidney a number of instances to be filtered. Because the blood is filtered, urine is fashioned and saved in a brief storage tank known as the urinary bladder.

If there have been to be no urinary bladder, as a person walks on the highway, urine shall be dropping.

Now consider the plumbing work in your own home. Consider the urinary bladder because the overhead storage tank. From the storage tank, a very good plumber will run pipes to different elements of the home, together with the kitchen. God in His knowledge ran pipes from our urinary bladder to the tip of the penis. The pipe known as the urethra. Slightly below the bladder and surrounding the urethra is a bit of organ known as the prostate gland.

The prostate gland is the scale of a walnut and weighs about 20grams. Its job is to make the seminal fluid which is saved within the seminal vesicle. Throughout sexual activity, seminal fluid comes down the urethra and mixes with the sperms produced within the testicles to kind the semen. So semen technically isn’t sperm. It’s sperm + seminal fluid. The seminal fluid lubricates the sperm.

After age 40, for causes that could be hormonal, the prostate gland begins to enlarge. From 20 grams it might develop to nearly 100 grams. Because it enlarges, it squeezes the urethra and the person begins to note adjustments in the way in which he urinates.

When you’ve got a son underneath 10, if he has a bit of mischief like all of us did at that age, when he comes out to urinate, he can goal the ceiling and the jet will hit goal. Name his father to do identical, wahala dey. His urine stream is weak, can not journey a protracted distance and typically could come straight down on his legs. So he may have to face in awkward place to urinate.

Not many males shall be anxious their urine stream can not hit the ceiling. Bathrooms are on the ground and never on the ceiling. However different signs start to indicate.


The person begins to note that after urinating and repacking, urine nonetheless drops on his pants. That is the explanation why after an older man urinates, he has to ring bell. A youthful man merely delivers to the final drop and walks away. Simply see an older man coming from the toilet. Typically he could clutch the newspaper intently to cover the urine stains, notably on plain coloured trousers.


At this level you wait longer for the urine circulate to start out. There are 2 valves that should open so that you can urinate – the inner and exterior sphincters. Each open however due to obstructions within the urethra, you wait longer for the circulate to start out.


You might have this sense instantly after urinating that there’s nonetheless one thing left.

As all these items occur, the bladder begins to work more durable to compensate for the obstruction within the urethra. The frequency of urination goes up. Urgency units in. Typically it’s important to virtually run into the bathroom. Nocturia additionally turns into widespread. You get up greater than 2 instances at night time to urinate. Your spouse begins to complain.

Males being males could not discuss to anybody even at this level. Then the extra severe issues begin.

Saved urine will get contaminated and there could also be burning sensation when urinating.

Saved urine kinds crystals. Crystals come collectively to kind stone both within the bladder or within the kidney. Stones could block the urethra.

Continual urinary retention units in. The bladder shops increasingly more urine. The scale of the bladder is 40 – 60cl. A bottle of coke is 50cl. Because the bladder shops extra urine it may possibly enlarge as much as 300cl. An overfilled bladder could leak and this results in wetting / urinary incontinence. Additionally the quantity could put stress on the kidney and will result in kidney harm.

What could probably convey the person to hospital is acute urinary retention. He wakes up someday and he’s not in a position to cross urine.

Every part I’ve described above is related to prostate enlargement, technically known as benign prostate hyperplasia.

There are different ailments of the prostate like:

1. Prostatitis – irritation of the prostate

2. Prostate most cancers – most cancers of the prostate.

This dialogue is on prostate enlargement.

I’ve dangerous information and excellent news.

The dangerous information is that everyman could have prostate enlargement if he lives lengthy sufficient.

The excellent news is that there are life model adjustments that may assist the person after 40 to keep up optimum prostate well being.


Have a look at what you eat. 33% of all cancers, in response to the US Nationwide Most cancers Institute is expounded to what we eat.
Crimson meat on a regular basis triples your probabilities of prostate illness. Milk on a regular basis doubles your threat. Not taking fruits / greens day by day quadruples your threat.

Tomatoes are excellent for males. If that’s the solely factor your spouse can current within the night, eat it with pleasure. It has a great deal of lycopene. Lycopene is probably the most potent pure antioxidant.
Meals which can be wealthy in zinc are additionally good for males. We advocate pumpkin seeds (ugbogulu).
Zinc is about probably the most important aspect for male sexuality and fertility.

Males want extra zinc than ladies. Each time a person ejaculates he loses 15mg of zinc. Zinc can be essential for alcohol metabolism. Your liver wants zinc to metabolize alcohol.


As males start to have urinary signs related to prostate enlargement, it will be significant they have a look at alcohol consumption. Extra fluid in means extra fluid out.

Drink much less. Drink slowly.


Train helps construct the muscle tone. Each man ought to train. Males over 40 ought to keep away from excessive impression train like jogging. It places stress on the knees. Biking is dangerous information for the prostate. We advocate brisk strolling.

Once we sit, two-third of our weight rests on the pelvic bones. Males who sit longer are extra susceptible to prostate signs. Don’t sit for lengthy hours. Stroll round as usually as you possibly can. Sit on snug chairs. We advocate a divided saddle chair should you should sit lengthy hours.


Males ought to keep away from tight underwear. It impacts circulation across the groin and heats it up a bit. Whereas the physiological temperature is 37 levels, the groin has an optimum temperature of about 33 levels. Pant is a no – no for males. Put on boxers. Put on breathable clothes.


Keep away from smoking. It impacts blood vessels and impression circulation across the groin.


Common intercourse is nice for the prostate.

Celibates are extra pronenn to prostate sickness. Whereas celibacy is an ethical determination, it’s not a organic adaptation. Your prostate gland is designed to empty its contents commonly.

Thought: when somebody shared one thing of worth with you and profit from it. You might have an ethical obligation to share it with others as a result of somebody in your folks checklist is likely to be saved.
