My Prostate and Its Health

The prostate gland is a small gland found in the reproductive system of most male mammals. This gland excretes an alkaline solution that constitutes up to 30% of semen produced during ejaculation. Its main role is to protect the sperms one they enter the acidic urinary tract of the female reproductive system.

The importance of this gland in the reproductive process in most mammalian species cannot be overlooked. Simply put, reproduction cannot take place without the help of this gland. By providing the alkaline environment needed to neutralize acid in the female urinary tract, the gland prolongs the life of the sperms and makes sure that it is able to deliver critical genetic information.

There exist several methods that one can use to check the health of the prostate gland. The first includes a procedure referred to as a digital rectum exam which is literally a physical examination of the gland which aims at identify and locating any tenderness or bumps. A more scientific approach involves a test that checks the level of a specific antigen naturally occurring in the gland.

More complex procedures include an ultrasound test whereby a probe is inserted through the rectum where it collects crucial data based on the high frequency sound waves it emits. A biopsy can also serve as a very accurate way of detecting any problems with the gland. These two complex tests may be more of secondary tests aimed at confirming any suspicions that a person or a practitioner may have regarding the health of this vital gland.

The most common health issues affecting the prostate gland include cancer and benign prostatic hyperplasia. The latter is a medical term used to refer to an enlarged gland.

Complications caused by this enlargement include difficulty in urination, dribbling after urination, frequent urination, painful ejaculation and uncomfortable urination. Chronic prostatitis may have same symptoms with BHP but will regularly be accompanied by pain at the bottom of the back and around the groin.

Several measures can be undertaken to ensure that your prostrate remains healthy. The most effective measure is having regular sex twice or thrice in a week. It should however be noted that it is not the sex that is beneficial but rather the ejaculation so masturbation may be used in substitution to sex. Reduction in alcohol consumption leads to a healthier gland as the amount of yeast intake is reduced. Other measures include keeping warm and regular exercise.

Nutrition may play a very crucial role in maintaining the health of this gland. Foods like apples, ginger and pumpkinseeds which contain anti-inflammatory properties help with problems brought about by enlarged glands. Tomatoes have also been known to contain cancer fighting elements which may help in combating cancer. Also any foods containing antioxidants may help deal with an enlarged gland.

Many issues or disorders associated with the prostate gland may occur at a quite advanced age but, it is essential to note that some like cancer may occur at a younger age. This is due to the fact that the gland continues to grow throughout life. Thus it is advisable for older men to conduct regular check and tests.
