Data show that 70% of men have prostatitis to varying degrees. The risk of prostatitis increases with age. The incidence rate of prostatitis is 37.8/10000 person-years.

Prostatitis is mainly caused by pathogenic bacteria infection or stimulation of noninfectious factors. Nowadays, men are under tremendous pressure in life, and the probability of men who have prostatitis is also increased due to various adverse factors. Many patients believe prostatitis has not affected their work and life and ignore treatment. So what are the hazards of long-term prostatitis?

The harm of long-term prostatitis is mainly manifested in the following aspects:

1. Affect work and life

As long-term inflammation stimulates the prostate, patients will have a series of diseases, such as lumbosacral, perineum, testicular swelling and pain, frequent nocturnal urination, urgent urination, and pain will significantly affect work and life in the long run. Targeted drugs should be actively used after diagnosis.

Taking Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill for chronic prostatitis with a prolonged course is suggested. Prostatitis is not treated in time, and many complications, such as seminal vesiculitis, epididymitis, orchitis, etc., will seriously affect the work and life of patients. Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill also has a good effect on diseases.

2.Influential function

Although prostatitis will not directly lead to male sexual dysfunction, long-term untreated prostatitis will lead to all kinds of discomfort in men's sexual life and psychological pressure. And men will have impotence, premature ejaculation, decreased libido, and other symptoms.

3. Affect psychology

Long-term prostatitis will lead to endocrine disorders, mental abnormalities, neurasthenia, fatigue, insomnia, dreaminess, mental retardation, memory loss, and other symptoms in men, which will affect the psychology of patients. In addition, excessive worry about the disease will also lead to a psychological burden on patients, which is more detrimental to the recovery of the disease.

4. Influence partner

Suppose prostatitis is caused by special bacterial infections, such as Trichomonas, mycoplasma, chlamydia, mold, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, etc. In that case, these will be transmitted to their partners through sexual life, which will seriously affect the relationship between husband and wife. If the reproductive tract releases a woman, it is likely to cause gynecological inflammation and infertility, with severe consequences.

5. Affect fertility

Long-term chronic inflammation of the prostate will affect the secretion function of the prostate, change the composition of prostatic fluid, and affect the liquefaction time of semen. Patients with chronic prostatitis will have decreased sperm motility, poor sperm quality, abnormal sperm, and other conditions, increasing the probability of male infertility.

There is also a decrease in lecithin corpuscles in patients with prostatitis. The lecithin corpuscle mainly provides nutrition for sperm. When the lecithin corpuscle decreases, the nourishment of sperm cannot be fully guaranteed, and the quality of sperm will decline. After the sperm quality decreases, infertility will occur.

The prominent harm of long-term chronic prostate inflammation is tumor susceptibility. According to 1985 US data, oncogene is the most critical factor, and the virus is also the possible cause. A group of retrospective studies in the United States found a statistically significant relationship between prostate and gonorrhea incidence rates, suggesting that prostate cancer's etiology was related to viral sexually transmitted diseases and chronic infection.

The latest research shows that normal prostatic fluid contains an anticancer substance, which is of great significance in inhibiting tumors. When the prostate is ill, this anticancer substance decreases, causing tumors.

Men with prostatitis should go to regular hospitals in time, improve relevant examinations, conduct prostate fluid tests, and carry out reasonable and effective treatment according to the examination results of patients and the actual situation.

At the same time, patients with prostatitis need to pay attention to:

1. Patients with prostatitis should not smoke or drink. Patients may know that smoking can cause impotence, but they do not know that smoking can also increase prostate congestion, aggravating acute and chronic prostatitis symptoms.
Drinking alcohol can expand the blood vessels of organs and increase the perfusion of blood, so it can also aggravate the congestion of the prostate, leading to the recurrence of cured prostatitis.

2. Prostatitis patients can not eat spicy food: green onions, raw garlic, pepper, and other irritant food. Although they can increase the taste of dishes, they can also cause vasodilation and organ congestion. Patients with prostatitis should not eat these foods. Otherwise, it will cause prostatitis to delay and be challenging to heal.

3. Prostatitis patients should avoid some meat, such as dog, beef, mutton, seafood, etc. Most meat foods are considered Yang boosting and vitality-enhancing delicacies, while traditional Chinese medicine believes that prostatitis is caused by dampness. Therefore, the effect of aphrodisiac drugs on diuresis may not be satisfactory. In addition, after years of clinical observation, eating more of the meat mentioned above can aggravate the disease.
