But what exactly is the prostate gland?
The prostate is a small gland that lies at the base of the bladder, around the tube through which urine passes, the urethra. it’s around the size of a small walnut. Its role is to produce the fluid that contains the semen or sperm.
Symptoms of an enlarged prostate are difficulty in urinating, the urinary stream becoming fitful, as it stops and starts. Usually there is the need to get up frequently during the night in order to urinate, and there is often the feeling that the bladder isn’t really empty. Dribbling is common after passing urine.
Prostatitis is different; it is inflammation of the prostate gland. When it is acute it is usually caused by a bacterial infection that causes pain on urinating. Acute prostatitis can usually be cleared with a course of antibiotics. Chronic prostatitis has been connected to stress and anxiety. In which case you’d be well advised to learn how to better manage these things. Practicing relaxation techniques, meditation, self-hypnosis, or listening to a stress-reduction self-hypnosis recording are all excellent ways of doing this.
