Are Prostate Disorders Dangerous?

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The prostate is one part of the male reproductive organs which is located in the pelvic cavity, just below the bladder in front of the rectum. This organ functions to produce fluid that nourishes sperm cells, or what is called semen.
There are various health problems that can affect the prostate organ. Some of them are:
BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia), which is an abnormal enlargement of the prostate size that often occurs with age.
Prostate cancer, namely the growth of prostate cells that are excessive, uncontrolled, and malignant. This condition is also more common in older men (over 35 years). This condition is more prone to occur in people with a family history of prostate cancer and are from African-American race.
Prostatitis, which is inflammation or infection of the prostate. This condition is more common in young or middle-aged men.
You can observe from our explanation above, that various disorders of the prostate gland can have different precipitating factors. And, not all men will experience problems with this prostate. However, the prostate plays an important role, one of which is in regulating your fertility. Therefore, prostate surgery is not an appropriate preventive solution. As long as you live a healthy lifestyle, the risk of experiencing problems with the prostate can be minimized.
One of the efforts that can be done to minimize the potential for prostate disorders is to undergo a healthy diet, which is low in saturated fat, increase the consumption of antioxidants, namely vegetables and fruits. In addition, early detection is also very important role to prevent the possibility of further complications. Therefore, if you experience symptoms of prostate disorders, such as urinary disorders, ejaculation disorders, fever, pelvic pain, or drastic weight loss for no apparent reason, you should immediately see a doctor.
I hope this helps.
