Is It True that Prostatitis is a Precursor to Prostate Cancer?

When tissue cells are damaged, immune cells will be activated, inflammatory factors will be released and cause local inflammation. It is the ability of the body which is used to resist pathogens locally and repair tissue and cell damage. However, if inflammation can not be effectively brought under control, repeated attacks may lead to cancer. 



For example, chronic ulcerative colitis increases the risk of colorectal cancer, hepatitis increases the risk of liver cancer. Helicobacter pylori-induced gastritis increases the risk of gastric cancer and so on. So does chronic prostatitis increase the risk of prostate cancer over time?


To figure out the answer to this question, we need to know the basic information of prostatitis and prostatic cancer.




Prostatitis refers to the pain or discomfort of testis or pelvis, such as abdomen and perineum, usually caused by pathogenic microorganism infection or stimulation of some non-infectious factors, and the typical symptoms include abnormal urination, such as frequent urination, urgent urination, dysuria, etc. More than 90% of prostatitis patients belong to chronic prostatitis.


Prostate cancer


Prostate cancer is a malignant tumor that occurs in male prostate tissue. More than 95% of prostate cancers are adenocarcinomas that occur in prostate gland tissue (most of the pathological diagnosis is adenocarcinomas). The causes of prostate cancer are mainly related to age (male over 60 years old), heredity, high animal fat diet, and high androgen level.


In the European and American countries, prostate cancer ranks second among the common malignant tumors. Such a high incidence of prostate cancer inevitably causes the concerns of men, especially those with prostatitis. But, Is it true that prostatitis is the precursor to prostate cancer?




The answer is “no”, Actually, the incidence of prostatitis is higher than that of prostate cancer. The relationship between prostate cancer and prostatitis has not been clearly defined, but it has been reported that the presence of prostatitis is a high-risk factor for the development of prostate cancer. The results also show that chronic prostatitis can cause tissue atrophy and abnormal differentiation, which can lead to prostate cancer. 


However, the cancerous rate of prostatitis is relatively low, so although there is a certain relationship between prostatitis and prostate cancer, but prostatitis not necessarily will lead to cancer.

The risk of canceration of prostatitis is not so high, but if it is not treated in time, prostatitis can also lead to prostatic hyperplasia, bladder outlet pressure, urine can not be completely emptied and lead to residual urine. 


Residual urine is a good medium for bacterial reproduction, and the defense mechanism of bladder mucosa is damaged. It is easy to cause urinary tract infections such as pyelonephritis. At this time, if the treatment is not thorough, it will develop from pyelonephritis and hydronephrosis to nephritis and finally to uremia.


Chronic prostatitis is difficult to treat because of the long treatment cycle and slow improvement of symptoms. After a period of treatment, many people can not insist and choose to give up. When symptoms get worse, they will start the treatment over again. Repetition goes on and on, eventually, people will be exhausted, losing confidence in the treatment. 




Actually, it's not as hard to cure as people imagined. Mainly including the following two ways:


Drug therapy


Alpha-receptor blockers, plant preparations, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory analgesics or M-receptor blockers can be used to improve symptoms, as well as other natural medicines such as Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill, it has effects of promoting blood circulation and removing blood stasis, clearing heat and detoxifying, promoting diuresis and relieving stranguria, which make it have a very good therapeutic effect on chronic prostatitis, and Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill will not produce any drug resistance, and it is not easy to relapse (Consult your doctor for specific use of drugs).


Prevention in life


Keeping a regular life. Don't abuse antibiotics. Avoid smoking and alcohol, and eat less spicy and stimulating food. To treat prostatitis correctly, we must maintain a positive attitude. Drinking more water, do not hold back urine to keep urination regularly, which is conducive to the discharge of prostate secretions. 


Develop good living habits, do not sit or ride bicycles for a long time, prevent overwork and getting colds, and do some physical exercise. For confirmed urogenital infections, such as testicular epididymitis, seminal vesicle inflammation, urethritis and so on, active treatment should be taken to ensure unobstructed urination in order to avoid secondary prostatitis.
