CONTACT YOUR UROLOGYST ASAP
Chronic prostatitis has varying symptoms. A lot of patients with a mild infection show no symptoms. The troubles which may occur are urinary or genital, accompanied by unpleasant sensations, or even pain. These sensations are localized inside the perineum, the rectum and the urethra and irradiate towards the ribs and penis. They start off with a sensation of weight or warmness, and sometimes with real pains.
Genital troubles are always present and are among the following:
Repeated and persistent erections, mostly nocturnal, and frequent nocturnal pollutions.
These erections strain the ill.
in other cases there is a decrease in libido and erections, even their total disappearance, and true impotence occurs
during sexual intercourse there is hyper-excitability which precipitates the ejaculation, sometimes even at first contact.
sometimes the sexual intercourse calms down the sensations which trouble the ill, other times it aggravates them.
nervous troubles occur quite rapidly, sometimes very acute ones: moral depression, concerns about their impotence, their inability to get married, of the weakening which they attribute to their leaks (which they consider to be seminal leakage), etc. The general state can rapidly aggravate and contributes to the aggravation of the disease.

PERSONAL INPUT TREATMENT (VARICOSE VEINS TESTICLES) KNOWN AS VARICOCELE
Regarding the varicose veins (testicles) kown as varicocele , I had the same condition a few years ago , I underwent surgery and the veins which were contracting and drainning my tescticle and pressuring them causing severe pain were removed. And, now in that area no problem at all ..this a suggestion... from my experience.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION YOU SHOUD DE AWARE OF AND DISCUSSED WITH YOUR UROLOGIST:
Symptoms of a varicocele may include:
Infertility.One recent study suggest the presence of varicoceles in over 90% of their cases of male infertility
Dragging-like or aching pain within scrotum.
Feeling of heaviness in the testicle(s)
Atrophy (shrinking) of the testicle(s)
Visible or palpable (able to be felt) enlarged vein, likened to feeling a bag of worms.
TREATMENT (VARICOSE VEINS TESTICLES) KNOWN AS VARICOCELE
Varicocele is an abnormal enlargement of the vein that is in the scrotum draining the testicles
Sew up wound after varicocele surgery
Varicocelectomy, the surgical correction of a varicocele, is performed on an outpatient basis.The three most common approaches are inguinal (groin), retroperitoneal (abdominal), and infrainguinal/subinguinal (below the groin). Various other techniques may be used. Ice packs should be kept to the area for the first 24 hours after surgery to reduce swelling. The patient may be advised to wear a scrotal support for some time after surgery. Possible complications of this procedure include hematoma (bleeding into tissues), hydrocele (accumulation of fluid around the affected testicle), infection, or injury to the scrotal tissue or structures. In addition, injury to the artery that supplies the testicle may occur.
In the Gat-Goren nonsurgical method for treating varicoceles, performed under local anesthesia, a catheter is inserted through a vein in the upper thigh. Fluid injected through the catheter selectively closes off the malfunctioning veins, thus enabling the testicular tissues to recover and begin to produce normal sperm in normal amounts. The procedure lasts one to two hours and causes almost no discomfort. The patient can return to his regular routine in about 5 days.
An alternative to surgery is embolization, a minimally invasive treatment for varicocele that is performed by an interventional radiologist. This involves passing a small wire through a peripheral vein and into the abdominal veins that drain the testes. Through a small flexible catheter, the doctor can obstruct the veins so that the increased pressures from the abdomen are no longer transmitted to the testicles. The testicles then drain through smaller collateral veins. The recovery period is significantly less than with surgery and the risk of complications is minimised with overall effectiveness similar to surgery, yet with fewer recurrence rates.
Embolization is an effective treatment for post-surgical varicoceles. These are varicoceles that reappear after they have been surgically repaired. The main theory is the presence of redundant gonadal veins that provide collateralization cause the reappearance of the varicoceles. The use of NBCA glues(N-butyl cyanoacrylate is a permanent liquid embolic material and tissue adhesive that is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use in cerebral arteriovenous malformations during the embolization is as effective at embolizing these collaterals as coils.)
I HOPE ALL THE INFORMATION PROVIDED HELPS YOU, AND EVERYTHING WORKS OUT FINE FORYOU.
