Prostate Calcifications and Chronic Inflammation: What You Should Know About Your Prostate Results

The Armor Men's Health Hour

Health & Fitness

Thanks for tuning in to the Armor Men’s Health Hour Podcast today, where we bring you the latest and greatest in urology care and the best urology humor out there.In this segment, Dr. Mistry and Donna Lee answer a listener's question: "I am 63. I had a prostate biopsy due to enlargement on one side, PSA of 2.27, no malignancy in any of the six samples, but with one sample, each showing prostatic duct calcification or chronic inflammation characterized by infiltrates of lymphocytes. PSA last week was 2.29. Does calcification inflammation tend to increase risks or mask future possible cancer growth? What is the best manner to gauge changes over the coming years with annual checkups? And does prostate exercise help improve any of these situations?" Once prostate cancer is ruled out, it becomes important to understand the cause of calcifications noted in the report. In this case, the body's natural inflammatory process is deployed in response to changes in the body. Any number of things can trigger the immune system to intervene--a prior infection, an injury, a blockage, etc. Fortunately, there should not be any increased risk of cancer development just because of this inflammatory process. If you were treated in a practice like ours, we would put you on an antiinflammatory kind of regimen, which includes some mild dietary changes like the addition of a curcumin and/or saw palmetto supplement. Finally, if you aren't in any pain from the inflammation of your prostate, there can be minimal intervention. If you are experiencing pain, a holistic treatment plan will be created that is designed to address various causes of the immune cascade and resulting inflammation. One rather fun method of treating the prostate is to "exercise" it by increasing the number of ejaculations you experience, whether through increased intercourse, routine masturbation, or both. This segment is a re-post of the episode originally aired on Oct. 3, 2020 entitled, "Prostate Inflammation: Causes, Treatments, and Why Ejaculation Is Your Prostate's Best Friend." If you enjoyed today’s episode, don’t forget to like, subscribe, and share us with a friend!
