Hello Toto Sujono,
The prostate is a gland that is owned by every man. The prostate is located at the bottom of the bladder, in front of the rectum (the part before the anus), and covers the urethra (not palpated from the outside). The prostate helps produce semen.
Normally a man's prostate is about the size of a walnut. However, as we get older, the prostate will increase in size. An enlarged prostate can press on the urethra to cause complaints of urination. Symptoms can appear at different ages because prostate enlargement that occurs in each person is also different. The prostate enlarges gradually, not in a matter of days, it gets bigger immediately, but usually the complaints you feel are not so felt until one day the urinary tract is really pinched so that the patient cannot urinate (just came to see a doctor). Prostate enlargement is generally divided into 2 benign (benign prostate hyperplasia / BPH) or malignant (prostate cancer).
Common symptoms of BPH include:
Urinating frequently, the patient wants to urinate continuously Urinating frequently at night, going back and forth to the toilet interfering with bedtime Showering weak urine Must straining to start peeing Urine dripping out of incomplete feeling after urinating In a very large prostate can arise complaints can not urinate at all or the presence of blood in the urine. In prostate cancer, complaints that arise are generally the same, but the presence of blood in the urine, pain in the lower abdomen, bowel disorders are more common.
Diagnosis of prostate enlargement must be done by a doctor. You can consult a urologist. The doctor will ask about your complaint history (put in the score), perform a physical examination (usually with a rectal toucher, insert a finger into the rectum through the anus to feel an enlarged prostate in front of it), and perform supporting examinations such as ultrasound, blood PSA level test, cystoscopy. , or a biopsy if needed. Handling BPH cases is generally by administering drugs (to help urinate) and surgery (TURP, prostatectomy, etc.). Complications that can arise due to surgery include bleeding, scarring of the urinary tract, surgical wound infection, impotence, etc. However, this happens very minimally due to better operating techniques and devices.
Enlargement of the prostate is inevitable. In certain conditions the risk increases (can occur faster), namely in people who are obese, smoking, people with diabetes mellitus or heart disease, and who have a family history of suffering from prostate enlargement as well. So to slow down the process, you can maintain a good lifestyle, stop smoking, maintain an ideal body weight, and consume nutritious foods, especially those that contain high fiber and protein.
That's the explanation from me, hopefully it's useful.
