Prostatitis is the inflammation (swelling) of the prostate gland. It can be very painful and distressing but will often get better eventually. The prostate is a small gland that lies between the penis and bladder. It produces fluid that’s mixed with sperm to create semen.

Prostatitis Treatment Options at Bizrahmed, Dubai

Bizrahmed is providing the top prostate treatment in Dubai. We offer comprehensive and most advanced treatments. Our state-of-the-art techniques and modern equipment allow accurate diagnosis and effective treatments. The urological treatment spectrum includes disorders of kidneys, ureters, bladder, prostate, urethra and the male genital organs. Several options are open to patients who want prostate treatment in Dubai, depending on the type of prostatitis.

Acute Bacterial Prostatitis

For acute bacterial prostatitis treatment, you will need to take antibiotics for at least 14 days. Occasionally some men may be admitted to the hospital and given antibiotics through an IV (into your vein). If you have trouble urinating, your health care provider may use a tube (a catheter) to drain your bladder. Almost all infections that start quickly are cured with this treatment. Sometimes, you will need to stay on the antibiotics for as long as four weeks. If one antibiotic does not work, your doctor will try others.

Chronic Bacterial Prostatitis

For chronic bacterial prostatitis treatment, you will need to take antibiotics longer, most often for 4 to 12 weeks. About three in four chronic bacterial prostatitis cases clear up with this treatment. Sometimes the symptoms return, and antibiotics are needed again. For cases that do not react to this treatment, long-term, low dose antibiotics are used to ease the symptoms.

Surgery

In rare cases, surgery on either the urethra or prostate may be needed. There must be an exact problem with the body, such as scar tissue in the urethra, for prostatitis surgery to work.

Who is more likely to develop prostatitis?

The factors that affect a man’s chances of developing prostatitis differ depending on the type.

  • Chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome. Men with nerve damage in the lower urinary tract due to surgery or trauma may be more likely to develop chronic prostatitis or chronic pelvic pain syndrome. Psychological stress may also increase a man’s chances of developing the condition.
  • Acute and chronic bacterial prostatitis. Men with lower UTIs may be more likely to develop bacterial prostatitis. UTIs that recur or are difficult to treat may lead to chronic bacterial prostatitis.

Symptoms of Prostatitis

For prostate treatment in Dubai, one should know the symptoms. Each type of prostatitis has a range of symptoms that vary depending on the cause and may not be the same for every man. Many symptoms are like those of other conditions.

Chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome.

The main symptoms of chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome can include pain or discomfort lasting for 3 or more months in one or more of the following areas:

  • between the scrotum and anus
  • the central lower abdomen
  • the Penis
  • the scrotum
  • the lower back

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia at a Glance

  • BPH is an enlarged prostate gland in men.
  • The prostate gland surrounds the urethra (a tube that carries urine out of the body) which, when squeezed by an enlarged prostate, causes bothersome urinary problems.
  • BPH is not prostate cancer and it does not cause cancer.
  • Many men over age 40 have a small amount of BPH, as the prostate naturally enlarges with age.
  • The BPH symptoms can be relieved by lifestyle changes, herbal medications, prescription medications, and surgery.

Acute bacterial prostatitis.

The symptoms of acute bacterial prostatitis come on suddenly and could be severe. Men should seek immediate medical care in such cases. Symptoms of acute bacterial prostatitis may include:

  • urinary frequency
  • urinary urgency
  • fever
  • chills
  • a burning feeling or pain during urination
  • pain in the genital area, groin, lower abdomen, or lower back
  • nocturia—frequent urination during periods of sleep
  • nausea and vomiting
  • body aches
  • urinary retention—the inability to empty the bladder completely.
  • trouble starting a urine stream.
  • a weak or an interrupted urine stream
  • urinary blockage—the complete inability to urinate.
  • a UTI—as shown by bacteria and infection-fighting cells in the urine.

Chronic bacterial prostatitis.

The symptoms of chronic bacterial prostatitis are similar to those of acute bacterial prostatitis, though not as severe. This type of prostatitis often develops slowly and can last 3 or more months. The symptoms may come and go, or they may be mild all the time. Chronic bacterial prostatitis may occur after previous treatment of acute bacterial prostatitis or a UTI. The symptoms of chronic bacterial prostatitis may include:

  • urinary frequency
  • urinary urgency
  • a burning feeling or pain during urination
  • pain in the genital area, groin, lower abdomen, or lower back
  • nocturia
  • painful ejaculation
  • urinary retention
  • trouble starting a urine stream
  • a weak or an interrupted urine stream
  • urinary blockage
  • a UTI

What Are the Types of Prostatitis?

For successful prostate treatment in Dubai, one should know the types. There are three types of prostatitis, or inflammation of the prostate:

  1. Acute infectious prostatitis

This comes on suddenly and the symptoms may be severe and include painful and frequent urination, a decreasing urinary stream and urinary retention, fever and chills, and low back pain. It can be caused by a virus or bacteria.

  1. Chronic infectious prostatitis

This is a long-lasting form of prostatitis and can be caused by bacteria, and worsened by nicotine, caffeine, stress, and alcohol. Symptoms can include frequent urination, pain in the low back or lower abdomen, and recurring bladder infections.

  1. Non-infectious prostatitis

This is the most common form of prostatitis. As it is not caused by some bacteria, antibiotics will be of no effect. The symptoms may be worsened by irregular sexual activity since infrequent ejaculation can cause the ducts to become blocked, and by stress, which causes the pelvis muscles to tighten and become painful. Increased pressure during urination can cause urine to back up into the ducts, leading to a form of chemical prostatitis.

Causes of Prostatitis

Prostatitis can be caused by bacteria that leak into the prostate gland from the urinary tract (the most common bacterial cause) and direct extension or lymphatic spread from the rectum. It can also result from various sexually transmitted organisms, such as HIV. Other organisms responsible for the infection are the same, found most frequently in urinary tract infections, such as Escherichia coli. In many instances (especially in the chronic form of prostatitis), no specific cause of prostatitis can be found.

Diagnosis of Prostatitis

Before prostate treatment in Dubai, your healthcare provider will assess your symptoms and perform a physical exam.

Less invasive tests for prostatitis may include:

  • Digital rectal exam: Your provider inserts a gloved, lubricated finger into the rectum to check the prostate gland for pain and swelling. This exam may include prostate massage to collect a sample of seminal fluid.
  • Urinalysis: A urinalysis and urine culture check for bacteria and UTIs.
  • Blood test: A blood test measures PSA, a protein made by the prostate gland. High levels may indicate prostatitis, BPH, or prostate cancer.

More invasive tests to carry out the prostate treatment in Dubai are as follows:

 

  • Cystoscopy: A cystoscopy can look for other urinary tract problems but does not diagnose prostatitis. Your provider uses a cystoscope (a pencil-sized lighted tube with a camera or viewing lens on the end) to view inside the bladder and urethra.
  • Transrectal ultrasound: Men with acute bacterial prostatitis or chronic bacterial prostatitis that doesn’t improve with antibiotics may get a Transrectal ultrasound.

Frequently Asked Questions
