Prostate health | Prostate problems | Herbal Support for BPH

Inflammation or infection in the prostate gland also known as prostatitis can affect men of all ages. The symptoms generally are fever, lower back pain, pain in the genital area, pain or discomfort while urinating or during ejaculation.

An enlarged prostate or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) generally affects men over 40. The prostate grows and puts pressure on the urethra causing difficulty in urinating and ejaculating. It can also lead to urinary stones, bladder infection, kidney problems and an emergency condition known as Acute Urinary Retention (AUR) where the prostate completely blocks urinary flow.

Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer related death in men in the USA. Abnormal cells begin to grow in the prostate gland and can destroy it. Symptoms of prostate cancer include difficulty urinating, pain in the lower back and pain during ejaculation. There is no known cause of prostate cancer although risk factors include age, race and genetics. It is important to get yearly physical exams and blood tests to screen for prostate cancer so it can be detected early and treated effectively.
