The prostrate gland is a male gland situated at the base of the urinary bladder and around the starting of urethra. The gland plays an important role in normal sexual life and its function is to secrete a fluid that is added to semen during sexual intercourse. Nearly one-third of all men over 50 years of age suffer from prostrate disorders. Prostrate disorders can lead to other ailments such as arthritis, kidney disorders and uremia.

There are various types of prostrate disorders but the two most important are:

  • Prostatitis or inflammation in the prostrate gland Prostatitis is common among men of all ages. It is mainly caused by bacteria that can enter prostrate gland from any other part of the body. It can also be caused due to the hormonal changes with the age. It can be acute or chronic. The inflammation and enlargement can result in urine retention.  This causes the bladder to become distended, weak, tender, and itself susceptible to infection.  Infection in the bladder is in turn easily transmitted up to the kidneys.
  • Hypertrophy or enlargement of the prostrate gland With the agea man's testosterone and free testosterone levels decrease and the levels of hormones prolactin and estradiol, increase. This results in an increase in the amount of dihydrotestosterone a very potent form of testosterone - within the prostrate. This causes an overproduction of prostate cells, which ultimately results in prostate enlargement.
