Contract during ejaculation and the female prostate gland, seminal milky alkaline adds. So because of my gelatinous state Madhast.
The input and output of the segmentation of the prostate gland in the body, because it is secreted through ducts material flows out of the body, m is the output node.
Fluid produced by the prostate and seminal sperm is stored in bags. Fluid secreted by the prostate that one-third of the semen. This fluid carries and nourishes sperm heads Dramyzsh work. The basic state of the fluid in semen, vaginal acidic environment is protected.
Prostatic secretions of the ingredients can be calcium, zinc, vitamin C (citric acid), acid phosphatase, albumin and prostate-specific antigen (PSA) noted.
What is the prostate?
One of the things to help control prostate urine, with pressure to the first part of the urethra. Also, the prostate secretes fluid that the male sex cells, or sperm keeps active. The wet and slippery fluid into the urethra.
The alkaline nature of the fluid and the material is Mghzyay to remain active sperm is required.
Prostate actions does not indicate that the prostate, male infertility, but not nearly as much impact it has on one's life.
● Prostate Specific Antigen
A special protein called prostate specific antigen or PSA Pyasa (English: PSA) produced the semen that will be the right time to keep the semen is semen helps prevent clotting.
Shortly after getting into my vagina and cervix into the clot is attached to the gel-like substance. 15 to 30 minutes after my clot, the clot dissolving enzyme PSA and free sperm can swim into the uterus.
Three types of disease that affects the prostate gland: two of them are benign and often life-threatening Nmyandaznd is a malignant type.
Prostate disease may be confused with each other because they have many of the symptoms are similar.
The three conditions are:
- Prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate), which is caused by a bacterial infection.
- Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or benign prostate cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland and prostate disease is one of the most common forms Tqrybadr half of men over fifty years can be seen.
- Prostate cancer is a potentially severe disease as malignant.
● Prostate Infection
Prostate infections can sometimes develop suddenly. Prostatitis means inflammation or infection of the prostate gland and prostate. To diagnose chronic prostate infection symptoms must be present for at least 3 months.
There are two types of prostatitis.
1 - a chronic bacterial infection of the prostate
2 - chronic prostatitis or CPPS
● prostate infection symptoms:
▪ Fever and chills

2 - urinary symptoms such as pain during urination, urgency of urination, weak flow of urine Urinary delayed start
3 - sexual dysfunction may be associated with pain after sexual activity.
4 - other symptoms of general fatigue or pain.
▪ What are diagnosed with prostate infection or inflammation?
1 - examining finger through the rectum:
The doctor can feel the prostate is tender and swollen.
2 - Urinalysis:
Through experimental urine test can also detect infection. Either through a urine culture to identify the type of infection.
To diagnose chronic prostatitis or chronic pelvic pain, urinary symptoms, a doctor should be other causes such as kidney stones, bladder disorders and infections declined to reach the diagnosis.
It is possible to identify various methods, such as MRI, biopsy of the prostate, bladder function tests and blood tests may be needed.
▪ How chronic inflammation or infection of the prostate can be treated?
Chronic bacterial prostatitis is long-term treatment. Doctors sometimes make very small doses of antibiotics are prescribed for six months to prevent reinfection.
If the patient is having difficulty in bladder emptying process, certain medications or surgery may be needed.
Treatment of chronic prostatitis or chronic pelvic pain often antibiotics do not work.
Changing diet bath with warm water and keep away from foods such as alcohol, caffeine-containing beverages and foods, spicy and spicy can be effectively treated. Too much fluid can also be helpful.
▪ enlarged prostate (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia):
The prostate grows in two periods, the first stage and second stage of early adulthood around the age of 25. It is totally harmless prostate enlargement and urinary problems later in life are often the cause. Age 60 to 80 percent of men experience urinary problems caused by an enlarged prostate.
Or enlarged prostate (BPH) or benign, but with an enlarged prostate gland "urethra" (urine canal) is the pressure that can cause urinary problems such as frequent urination, sudden compulsion to urinate, waking (at night) to urinate, difficulty starting urination and dribbling at the end of urination, the bladder not emptying completely and sometimes is unable to urinate.
In some men, an enlarged prostate signs of aging over time. Although this is not a disease but as the tumor grows, the more pressure on the urethra and cause urination problems are.

▪ incomplete pass urine
▪ having difficulty starting urination and stop it
Obstructive symptoms usually show themselves earlier and include: frequent urination, urinary retention, urinary flow and decreasing diameter and pressure drop of the urine.
These symptoms are caused by inflammation of the prostate. On physical examination, prostate swelling TR is considered. Ultrasound may help detect disease.
Treat this type of disease depends on the cause and severity. However, early treatment with laser surgery and progress to the higher stages of the operation was to stop the disease.
Some men have to wait and see if these symptoms become more severe. But there are medications that can help you improve these problems.
Zinc for the treatment of inflamed or enlarged prostate is very useful.
Metal-on-one trace elements (elements that are needed in small quantities for normal growth of living organisms) is an important and critical role in cell growth and differentiation.
Studies have shown that zinc deficiency is due to an enlarged prostate. So eating foods containing zinc or zinc supplements are recommended. Eating tomatoes is also very useful.
Research at Harvard University on 47 thousand men showed that those who ate tomatoes every week 10, 50 percent fewer prostate cancer were actually eating tomatoes reduces prostate cancer risk.
Researchers believe that this reduces the risk of the cancer, "pigment" is the tomato.
"Pigment" is the most powerful and effective carotene found so far and the tomato is red.
● Prostate Cancer
Prostate cancer is usually slow-growing malignant prostate cells within the prostate grow over the years and in this time the little signs. But gradually spread outside the prostate.
May be distant tissues such as bones, lungs and liver will Dstandazy. Signs and symptoms depend on the rate of disease progression. The most common Bdkhymymnjr death, after lung cancer.
No one knows the exact cause of prostate cancer. Experts do not know why some men develop prostate cancer and why some do not.
Prostate cancer often seen in old age with malignant obstruction of the urinary tract and the blood level of PSA also increases enzyme. The disease usually occurs in benign prostatic hyperplasia with age.
Research has shown that there are certain factors that Mstdkhtr men is prostate cancer. As the cancer progresses. These factors are:
▪ aging: an age of 50 years and more
▪ Family history: Having a brother, father or son who has had prostate cancer.
▪ diet: eating fatty foods and drinking alcohol increases the risk.
▪ Race: African American descent have the highest susceptibility.
Surgery and chemotherapy for metastatic, hormone therapy and radiotherapy in the treatment of this disease.
● Prevention of Prostate Cancer
1 male over 40 years to screen for the disease, annual screening (PSA through blood tests) and examination by a physician is recommended.
2 _ diet: According to recent research Dydhshdhast the consumption of certain foods such as selenium, vitamin D, soy, green tea, lycopene (a substance found in tomatoes) has been effective in preventing or reducing tumor growth.
