Although prostatitis is a very common disease in male adults, the etiology of the disease is not particularly clear at present. Medically, what can be understood are some obvious factors associated with it. In general, there are five factors related to the pathogenesis of prostatitis.

1. Urine stimulation

Medically, urine stimulation is seen as a chemical factor. This is because urine contains a variety of acid and alkaline chemicals. When patients with local neuroendocrine disorders, resulting in high pressure in the posterior urethra and injury in the opening of the prostate gland, irritant chemicals such as uric acid will reflow into the prostate gland, causing chronic prostatitis.

2. Congestion in the prostate gland

Congestion in the prostate gland induced by various causes, especially passive hyperemia, is an important pathogenic factor for the presence of prostatitis. The disease is usually not caused by bacterial infection or microbial invasion, but it can form an inflammatory response and then induce prostatitis.

In daily life, there are many bad habits that can lead to the occurrence of the congestion in the prostate gland, such as drinking too much alcohol, eating excessive spicy foods, sitting for too long and holding urine for too long. As a result, patients should give up on these behaviors as soon as possible.

3. Pathogenic microorganism infection

All sorts of microorganism like bacterium, protozoa, fungus, virus and so on can lead to prostatitis, in which bacteria are the most common ones, such as gonococcus and escherichia coli. There are three main ways in which bacteria invade. The first one is the hematogenous infection.

Clinical discovery show that more than 90% of bacterial prostatitis is caused by microbial infection. The second one is the lymphatic infection, such as lower urinary tract infections and inflammations in the colon and rectum, which can infect the prostate gland through lymphatic channels and produce inflammation gradually.

4. Immune factors and allergies

Relevant studies have shown that chronic prostatitis has a certain relationship with human immune factors. Some medical experts have found "anti-prostate antibodies" in patients with arthritis. This kind of patient can produce anti-prostate antibody due to congenital or acquired immune deficiency, thereby causing damage to the prostate tissues and then triggering prostatitis.

If the patient has no bacterial, viral or mycoplasma infection factors after examination, the existence of immune factors can be considered. Additionally, experts in clinical practice have found that an allergic reaction to a virus can also cause inflammation. In particular, some patients with low body resistance often have higher sensitivity to the virus, which can make them more prone to the chronic prostatitis.

5. Anxiety, depression, fear and other psychological problems

You may not think that a bad mood can affect prostatitis, while you should notice some psychological problems that are related to prostatitis. Statistics show that nearly half of patients with chronic non-bacterial prostatitis suffer from anxiety, depression, fear, pessimism and other symptoms. Some patients with prostatitis accompanied by pain and neurasthenia often exaggerate the pain and discomfort unknowingly, making them think their symptoms are more serious than the actual condition.

For this phenomenon, it can be seen as a tension prostatitis. Experts point out that psychological factors and the age are related, and usually mental burden in young patients is obviously heavier than older patients. These psychological factors often directly affect the effect of drug treatment.

As a result, if you have prostatitis, you should get treated in time. Usually, the herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill is a great option for male patients with prostatitis, especially the chronic one. What's more, keeping good living habits and positive mindset can also help you get better soon.
