The troublesome summer disease-prostate gland infection and treatments
Prostate gland is a gland present near the male bladder and prostate related problems are very important. Lack of knowledge in men about this problem leads to late diagnosis. Many young men do not recognise it on time and they might experience severe anxiety, early ejaculation, low sperm count resulting in infertility. Chronic prostate infection might lead to prostate cancer and become life threatening, according to scientists.
The prostate is located between male bladder and back of penis. It produces a thick, white fluid in the semen. This contains citric acid, phosphatise, prostic acid and prosta glandis . In semen 13-33% fluid is produced by prostate gland which is important for the movement of sperm. Of all the other prostate related problems prostate gland infection is significant.
