Which Prostate Treatments Are Most Effective?

Aug 17, 2007
All men above the age of 60 are candidates for prostate disorders. Prostatitis, or enlargement of the prostate, is just one of them; affliction may be acute (sudden development of enlargement of the prostate, caused by bacterial infection and transmitted through unprotected sexual activities with an infected mate) or chronic (gradual development of the enlargement of the prostate; in most cases, this affliction persists for a prolonged period of time). When symptoms of enlarged prostatitis are present, a specialist should be consulted immediately - this should not be neglected or delayed so that early detection for prostate cancer could be effected.

Erectile dysfunction and impotence, among others, are also prostate disorders. There is an abundance of prostate treatments available in the market today, both traditional and herbal. Traditional medications in the treatment of prostate problems come in the form of pills or injectable chemicals. In serious cases, as in prostate cancer, an operation may be necessary to remove the malignant cells, followed by chemotherapy and radiation therapy and oral medication therapy. Side effects for traditional post-operation treatment methods may ensue; this happens because the healthy cells are also affected by the onslaught of invasive chemicals and the body system react to this invasion. Many specialists advise the patient to concern themselves with addressing the side effects once the main ailment has been duly treated.

Fortunately, prostate treatments now come in herbal form, too, so the patients now have several treatment alternatives to choose from. Herbal medications are not only for patients who cannot afford the exorbitant prices of traditional medicines; through the years, there is already a rising awareness in the better benefits of herbal medicines and there is now a popular clamor for these alternative treatment. Among the precautions issued by medical specialists who promote traditional medicines over alternative medicine is that traditional medicines are for faster action, while herbal medicines take too long a time and large doses for it to take effect.

One of the popular claims of herbal treatment, on the other hand, is the absence of post-medication side effects. Topping the list of popular herbal medications that specifically address prostate problems are drugs made from extracts from saw palmetto and pygeum. It is a fact that the amount of DHT (dihydrotestosterone) in the prostate gland increases as a man's age advances; this high level of prostate DHT may promote excessive cell growth in the gland and, hence, enlargement of the prostate. Elimination of DHT is promoted by herbal prostate treatments.

Prostate treatments, traditional or herbal, are aimed at solving whatever prostate problems there may be; it is up to the patient to choose the course he wants to take in alleviating his particular case.
