Many people think that an improper diet or a poor stomach causes the phenomenon of abdominal swelling. In fact, this idea reflects people's lack of understanding of the common sense of disease.

So what exactly is the cause of abdominal swelling in men? Experts believe that most men have prostatitis if they have a lower abdomen and frequent urine.

Why does prostatitis cause abdominal pain in men?

This is because when inflammation symptoms occur in the prostate, part of the tissue in the gland has become stiff and hardened, or part of the gland has developed calcification, pressing to the nerves. Irritating symptoms will appear in the nerve reflex area of the prostate. Common symptoms are lumbar soreness, pudendal pain, and abdominal swelling.

Acute prostatitis can lead to prostate congestion, edema, or the formation of small abscesses, such as ejaculatory pain, painful erection, decreased libido, sexual pain, impotence, blood essence, etc.

The pain of chronic prostatitis is not limited to the urethra and vagina. It also radiates to the vicinity of it, causing abdominal pain in men. At the same time, low back pain is common.

In addition, the penis, seminal cord, testicular sac, lower abdomen, groin (the root of thigh), thigh, rectal and other places can be affected. The symptoms of chronic prostatitis vary in severity and may be asymptomatic in mild cases, but pain or discomfort in the pudendum or rectum can be seen in most patients.

The abdominal pain can be radiated to the lumbosacral or pubis, testicles, groin, and other places; there will be symptoms such as urinary discomfort, burning sensation of urine, often milky white secretions at the entrance of the urethra, pain in the radiation area, and even sexual dysfunction.

So what method should be taken to treat the abdominal pain caused by prostatitis?

The treatment of prostatitis is generally based on the patient's symptoms and related test results. Generally, let the patient, at least, do the B-ultrasound of the urinary system and then add a urine routine. If necessary, you can do prostate fluid tests and prostate fluid culture; sometimes, you may need some urine culture.

Through these tests, the inflammation of the patient's prostate can be evaluated and classified to see if it is caused by bacterial prostatitis or because of some aseptic reasons.

Therefore, after clarifying, the doctor will choose some corresponding drugs according to the corresponding diagnosis. If it is a bacterial infection, you will use the traditional Chinese medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill to improve the patient's clinical symptoms. In this way, the problem of prostate inflammation is solved, and the abdominal pain caused by it will naturally disappear.

If your abdominal pain is due to prostatitis after examination, it should be actively treated. Because prostatitis often causes sexual dysfunction, such as decreased libido, impotence, premature ejaculation, seminal over frequency, blood essence, ejaculatory pain, etc., the secretion of prostate fluid is reduced, which leads to reduced semen volume, increased viscosity, long liquefaction time after discharge, affecting the survival and vitality of sperm, and then affecting fertility.
