BDS (NZ) Dr. Alan Tan. BDS (NZ) Health& well-beingAdvertising Feature Prostate health a common concern Problems with, and dis- eases of, the prostate are a common health con- cern facing men but the good news is there is a lot you can do to monitor your own prostate health and keep yourself fit and healthy. The prostate gland is located at the base of the bladder, and is part of the male reproductive system. It is about the size of a walnut and the fluid it secretes mixes with semen and nour- ishes sperm. The gland encircles the urethra and most of the signs of pros- tate problems relate to urine flow changes. If you experience any of the following symp- toms, get your prostate checked straight away; Having to get up dur- ing the night to urinate Weak urine flow, and taking longer to urinate Burning feeling when passing urine, and a feel- ing of urgency to urinate Slow, interrupted, flow and dribbling afterwards Feeling your bladder is not empty when you fin- ish urinating. These are signs of one of the three typical pros- tate problems'', say Self Care pharmacists. Either the prostate is enlarged (a condition known as benign pros- tatic hyperplasia, or BPH), or inflamed (known as prostatitis), or it is prostate cancer.'' With BPH, the pros- tate becomes larger and less flexible; it squeezes the urethra and disrupts normal urine flow. Prostate enlargement is age-related, and is due to changes in male horm- ones. Many men 50 and over experience BPH symptoms and it is the most common prostate problem. Treatment ranges from life-style changes, e.g. reducing fluid intake (for mild symptoms), to medicines to relax muscles and shrinking the gland (for moderate symptoms), or surgery. Prostatitis can be the result of a bacterial infection which makes the prostate sore and swollen. The lower abdo- men/groin area, may feel tender or painful. You may get fever or chills. See your doctor quic- kly if you have these symptoms because you will need antibiotics if you have an infection. While BPH is more frequent in older men, prostatitis affects both younger and older men equally. Prostate cancer is the most serious problem, and the most common cancer type for men in New Zealand. The difficulty is that many men do not have symptoms until the can- cer is established. But it is a slow-growing cancer and, if detected early, in certain cases it can be treated effectively. Men aged over 50 years'', say Self Care pharmacists should talk to their doctors annually about the risk of prostate cancer, and discuss what checks should be perf- ormed. Men experiencing any of the signs of pros- tate problems -- blood in the urine or semen, or pain on passing urine -- need to get to the doctor without delay.'' If there is a family his- tory of prostate cancer, men should discuss the option of having check- ups from the age of 40.
