The Relationship Of Smoking To Prostate Disease And How To Overcome It?
My father has prostate, does smoking have a big effect? How do you eat? Thank you
Hi Rani, thanks for the question.
The prostate is a gland in the male reproductive system. Some abnormalities in the prostate that often occur include:
Prostatitis, is inflammation of the prostate gland. Usually caused by bacterial infections originating from the urinary tract or sexually transmitted infections.
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), is a benign prostate enlargement, so that the urinary tract can narrow. The usual symptoms that arise in the form of difficulty urinating and halting.
Related to your question, if what is meant is prostate cancer then smoking is one of the risk factors in addition to several other risk factors such as age, obesity, family history, lifestyle, high fat diet, alcohol, and so on. More details can be read here.
In general, consumption of healthy and nutritious foods, multiply eating vegetables and fruits, avoid preserved foods can be a consideration to prevent abnormalities in the prostate, especially prostate cancer. However, if complaints are increasingly burdensome it is advisable to immediately see a doctor.
That's all, hope it helps.
