Dr. Erik Goluboff performs the necessary diagnostic tests to determine the problem
Chronic prostatitis, also called chronic pelvic pain syndrome, is an inflammation of the prostate gland. It is a benign disease with a long course and complex treatment. Frequently presents pain and burning when urinating, with ejaculation, decreased urinary stream, and frequent urination. It is estimated that at least 35% of men over the age of 50 suffer from this disorder.
Dr. Erik Goluboff offers medical treatment aimed at relieving symptoms. First of all, this doctor usually indicates the taking of antibiotics to rule out that bacteria are the cause of the enlarged prostate. This treatment generally lasts for 6 to 8 weeks or even longer. Still, if the patient does not respond, there are other types of medications whose purpose is to relax the prostate gland muscles, such as Doxazosin and tamsulosin.
Transurethral resection of the prostate is the surgical alternative applied by Dr. Erik Goluboff; however, he advises against it for young men since impotence and incontinence exist as complications.
Carry out the necessary diagnostic tests
Regarding eating habits, Dr Erik Goluboff recommends not ingesting substances that irritate the bladder, such as alcohol, caffeinated beverages, citrus, or highly seasoned foods. Likewise, increasing water intake helps eliminate waste products and bacteria, if any.
It is important to try to empty the bladder with each urination and to go to the bathroom whenever you feel like it since, in this way, the symptoms of urinary urgency are avoided. If bladder emptying is not possible, bladder catheterization may be required. If you have symptoms of prostatitis, it is recommended that you go to Dr. Erik Goluboff; he will start the necessary diagnostic tests and the treatment that best suits your characteristics.
He treats urological pathologies
The inflamed prostate results from the prostate gland’s abnormal growth. With the progressive increase in the size of the gland, the amount of certain compounds inside the prostate also increases, which can be harmful depending on the case. Dr. Erik Goluboff determines the type of pathology suffered by the patient: if it ispelvic pain syndrome, asymptomatic prostatitis, bacterial prostatitis, or acute prostatitis.
