The Results Of A Full Abdominal Ultrasound Examination?
I am a 26 year old man. Initially I went to a specialist in urology because there were problems with urinating that were too frequent and incomplete. Then I did a full abdominal ultrasound with prostate results: mild prostate hypertrophy and calcification. What is meant by the results above? What kind of prostate disease is included? Accept love.
Hello, thank you for using HealthReplies.com.
Ultrasound results with a description of prostatic hypertrophy are usually found in Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH) which is an enlarged prostate gland that is benign as we age, especially over the age of 40 years. The prostate gland is located in the neck of the male urinary tract, so that BPH causes the main symptoms of feeling always want to urinate, especially at night, not feeling loose at the time of urination, and pain when urinating.
Ultrasound results with calcification or calcification are usually found in prolonged inflammatory prostate disease (chronic prostatitis). This disease usually causes pain or discomfort in the lower abdomen, groin area under the genitals or sometimes found bloody sperm, and urinary disorders such as urine dripping with a frequency of more than 10 times sometimes accompanied by pain when urinating.
I suggest you take your ultrasound results to a urology specialist, so that a thorough examination can be done, such as question and answer, physical examination such as prostate examination through rectal plugs, and additional examinations if necessary such as urine analysis and urine culture to find out if there is an infection in the prostate or not, so that treatment can be given according to your diagnosis.
As for the things you can do right now are:
Exercise regularly Don't consume caffeine and alcohol. Do not consume spicy or acidic foods Consume foods that are rich in fiber and protein, and low in fat Start getting used to not drinking anything two hours before bedtime to avoid nocturia (increased urination frequency throughout the night) Avoiding activities that can cause irritation to prostate, such as prolonged sitting or biking. Thus the information that I can convey, hopefully can help you.
