The prostate is a topic that a lot of men worry about (and so do their partners!) as they approach their fiftieth birthday. However, it is a topic that is often poorly understood, because it is taboo, both between couples and in consultations with healthcare professionals.
Is the prostate a disease?
“It’s my prostate”. A lot of men use this expression when signs of urinary disorders appear. However the prostate is not a disease! The prostate is a gland belonging to the male reproductive system. It is situated just below the bladder and crossed by the urethra, the tube that carries the urine from the bladder to the exterior of the body. The size of a nut, its role is to produce the prostatic fluid, one of the components of the sperm. However, it has no direct impact on erection.
When the prostate wakes up…
With age, the prostate naturally increases in volume. This normal development generally starts at about the age of 30, but is really evident only from the age of 45 years onwards. In fact, as long as it does not reach a significant size, the prostate does not make itself felt. However, when it becomes too large, it can lead to problems and difficulties when urinating (because it is located below the bladder and around the urethra). This excessive increase in the volume of the prostate is called benign prostatic hyperplasia. As its name implies, the condition is not dangerous to health but impacts on quality of life.
The prostate: some figures
100,000 new cases of urinary disorders connected with the prostate are detected every year.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia affects 1 in 7 men aged between 40 and 49 years and 1 in 2 men between 60 and 69 years. About 2 million men are affected in France and 800,000 are on daily treatment for symptoms connected with prostatic hyperplasia. However, many men worry about the side effects of the medicines.
