Prostate Treatment for BPH 


BPH, or benign prostatic hyperplasia, or prostatic hypertrophy, is the enlargement of the prostate. New prostate surgery such as prostatectomy, TURP surgery are now available to treat enlarged prostate, hyperplasia and hypertrophy caused by infection and blockage.

When there are symptoms of enlarged prostate, it may not be necessarily BPH, or benign prostatic hyperplasia. If there are symptoms of infection, it is likely you have prostatitis too. It is also difficult for local laboratory to find out prostate infection from patients with BPH, benign prostatic hyperplasia, benign prostatic hypertrophy and prostatitis.


Instead of herbal medicine such as Quercetin and Saw Palmetto, our prostate surgery uses prostatic injections, antibiotics and herbal medicine to cure BPH and benign prostatic hyperplasia. Antibiotics penetrate deep inside the prostate and eradicate infection while herbal medicine softens, break up and remove the blockage that forms swollen prostate. Once most blockage is removed, symptoms of BPH are greatly reduced or completely gone.

Diagnosis of BPH, or Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or benign prostatic hypertrophy, or benign prostatic hypertrophy, is the medical term for prostate enlargement.

The prostate grows when there is bacteria. The growth starts with the blockage formation from bacteria metabolism. The infection can be severe and acute that is clearly noticeable or it could be very subtle and mild that it is not easy to notice.


Causes of BPH

In some cases, BPH is caused by unhealthy habits or lifestyles. For instance, prolonged erection without ejaculation that traps large amount of prostate fluid in the prostate, or sitting for a long time disrupting blood circulation in the prostate, or bad personal hygiene that introduces some germs from head of penis.

The last factor is STD related. Some pathogens such as Chlamydia, Mycoplasma, Ureaplasma, and other common bacteria, such as Pseudomonas, Trichomonas, Staphylococcus, Enterococcus, Corynebacteria., may infect the prostate through sexual contacts. The prostate is always infected and enlarged.


Surgery and Treatment to cure Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)

The treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is relatively simple compared with that for prostatitis. Prostatectomy and TURP surgery with penetration are the modified prostate surgery for BPH. As prostatectomy and TURP surgery integrate herbal medicine for dissolving blockage, calcification and abscess, the prostate surgery shrinks the prostate in a few weeks.

Surgery to Dissolve Prostatic Hyperplasia and Hypertrophy

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a lot easier to treat than prostatitis although it usually take more time to dissolve the blockage than infection. Prostate surgery such as prostatectomy and TURP surgery inject herbal medicine to the prostate to disintegrate mass and waste in the prostate. Infection of benign prostatic hyperplasia is usually mild and simple with less complications. On the other hand, prostatitis usually come with epididymitis, seminal vesicles infection, spermatic duct infection.


Internal Cause of Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (BPH)

Internal cause of benign prostatic hypertrophy means the bacteria originates from the body itself. The prostate is a place where various good bacteria reside in balance whereas for prostatitis, bacteria is either STD related or introduced externally through unprotected sex or physical contact.

Herbal Medicine to Shrink Enlarged Prostate

A formula of herbal medicine is used to shrink the enlarged prostate. Our surgical experience shows that it can effectively dissolve particles of the blockage and waste stuck in the enlarged prostate although it may take a long time for severe cases.

The herbal medicine works completely different from western herbal medicine of Quercetin and Saw Palmetto. It only dissolves the particles of inorganic waste and blockage that was not part of the tissue of the prostate.

The prostate surgery uses a prostatic injection administered near the anus area, bypassing the rectum and colon, straight to the prostate. This non-invasive surgery is an ingenious yet simple surgery to shrink the prostate and cure BPH.

Treatment for Infections of BPH

Although reducing the size of the prostate is one of the goals of our prostatectomy and TURP surgery, eradication of infections is also very important when treating BPH caused by infection or inflammation. Incomplete treatment on leave infection untreated will cause the prostate growth process to start again as bacteria grow back.

The prostate surgery eradicates infections by administering to the prostate with antibiotics solution. Through the unique path, all medicine are fully used in the prostate and greatly enhance antibiotic concentration, resulting in much higher cure rate than oral antibiotics alone.

Distinction between Prostatitis and BPH

Most doctors view the cause of BPH is the tissue growth and not related to infection, so they suggest it is safe to have sex with sex partner without condom. Herbal prescriptions such as Saw Palmetto and Quercetin are the most common herbal medicine for BPH. However, if BPH is caused by infection, these herbal medicines will not work. In fact, many cases of prostatitis are misdiagnosed as BPH and therefore mistreated because the pattern of symptoms are quite similar.

Treatment for Prostatitis with BPH (Enlarged or Swollen Prostate)

Prostatitis and BPH Consultation Session

Before prostate surgery, you will have a thorough and comprehensive consultation in the surgery center. Medical history, symptoms and pain are discussed. The doctor will also examine whether there are signs of prostatitis and benign prostatic hyperplasia. If you have brought with you documents of lab tests, treatments and diagnosis from your doctors, it is also a good reference. However, a comprehensive laboratory test is also needed for all new patients as our lab test is much more accurate and comprehensive.

Digital Rectal Examination (DRE)

After consultation, our doctor will examine your prostate with gloved fingers. He will press on different parts of the prostate to spot swelling and hardening, and he examines the size of the prostate to evaluate severity of enlargement. An enlarged and infected prostate will cause intense pain when the finger is pressed. For severe BPH with many years of history, it is common to have calcifications, cysts, lumps, fibrosis.

Collection of Prostate Fluid from Penis

An important task of digital rectal exam is to collect a few drops of prostate fluid from the prostate. This is done with the doctor vigorously massaging the prostate to force prostate fluid out into the urethra. A container is placed near the head of penis to collect the fluid. This procedure is extremely painful as the infected tissue is sensitive to the tremendous pressure from the finger.

Laboratory Tests and Examinations for BPH and Prostatitis

The lab tests for BPH and prostatitis are blood test, culture tube test and culture plate test. Blood test is for Chlamydia, HPV, HSV, CMV, and Coxsackie Virus, etc, culture tube is for ureaplasma urealyticum, mycoplasma genitalium, mycoplasma hominus, while culture plate is for a list of common bacteria such as Trichomonas, Corynebacteria, Pseudomonas, Staphylococcus, Enterococcus, etc.

The doctor will also examine the prostate fluid with a microscope. He will look for white blood cells, red blood cells, particles from the blockage, color and clarity of the fluid. Large amount of white blood cells indicates the infection is mainly from the list of common bacteria, small amount of white blood cells indicates the infection is from Chlamydia, ureaplasma, mycoplasma or virus.

Semen Test Analysis

Semen also tells the condition of BPH and prostatitis. The doctor will examine semen and sperms. Yellow semen indicates infection in the seminal vesicles and the prostate, bloody semen indicates enlargement and calcifications in the seminal vesicles. Sperm quality tells the severity of infection and blockage in the prostate. Volume of semen tells the severity of blockage in epididymis and spermatic ducts.

It is common for a prostate with BPH or prostatitis to have low sperm count, weak sperm mobility, delayed semen liquefaction and other symptoms.

BPH Treatment with Prostate Surgery

The first step of the treatment is to find out the exact cause of pathogens. After the pathogens are identified in the lab, you are ready for prostatectomy and TURP surgery to cure BPH and prostatitis. During the prostate surgery, the doctor will inject from a spot near the anus where it bypasses the rectum and colon directly to the prostate. This technique is unique and safe.

Antibiotics and Herbal Medicine for BPH

The BPH medicine solution consists of both antibiotics and herbal medicine for eradication of infections and blockage, respectively. The choice of antibiotics depends on the type of pathogens found. The proportion between antibiotics and herbal medicine administered relates to the course of the treatment. Both antibiotics and herbal medicine are administered starting the first day of treatment so that both anti-infection and unblocking processes can start working asap.

Procedure of Prostatectomy

The medicine solution is prepared daily for the changing condition of the prostate and surgery progress. In each session of prostatectomy, the doctor injects to the prostate from behind while the patient bends over. Before injection, his other finger needs to insert to the rectum first for accurate positioning. A spot with most pain or symptoms is always picked for prostatectomy.

Pain Management After Surgery

Although prostatectomy sounds scary in the beginning, it is actually a very simple and safe procedure and is completely different from traditional prostatectomy. Pain from the shot is manageable by most patients. It is a good idea to have a slow walk immediately after surgery to relieve some pain sensations and help blood circulation in the prostate, and the pain will be reduced in a few hours in most cases.

Urethral Perfusion - Assistant Treatment for BPH

Urethral perfusion is also part of prostate surgery system. Urethral perfusion means putting medicine solution to the urethra cavity and the prostate through the head of penis. Medicine solution diffuses into the prostate and the urethra, and eventually cure infection and blockage. It is suitable for benign prostatic hyperplasia cases with infection and severe urinary symptoms such as frequent urination. It is an ideal treatment for UTI, urinary tract infections, or urethritis.

Rectal Perfusion - Assistant Treatment for BPH

When rectum is also infected and inflamed by BPH or prostatitis, it is called proctitis. Proctitis needs to be treated if it is severe. Symptoms of proctitis include burning rectum, inflamed rectum, hard stool, difficult to pass stool, blood in stool, etc. Herbal medicine solution is injected to the rectum through a catheter and absorbed by the membrane of the rectum. The treatment cures infection and inflammation in the rectum, and it softens stools too.

Magnetic Massage - Assistant Treatment for BPH

BPH, or benign prostatic hypertrophy, is always caused by blockage, abscess, calcifications, lumps and cysts, magnetic massage is an efficient way to loosen these particles and structures physically. This assistant treatment helps break up the particles of obstruction and speed up unblocking process.
