Prostate Cancer Could be Linked to Sexually Transmitted Infection

Prostate cancer may be caused by a sexually transmitted infection (STI). Scientists at the University of California tested human prostate cells in the lab and found that a non-viral sex infection called trichomoniasis aided cancer growth in those cells. The study suggests that the sexually transmitted infection might make men more prone to prostate cancer. However, more research is required to …

[display_name id=”0″]UTI’s in pregnant women need to be treated aggressively, as a simple bladder infection is much more likely to result in a kidney infection and preterm labor.

Some children develop UTIs. In boys, they are most common before the first birthday. UTIs are more common among uncircumcised boys. In young girls, UTIs are most common around age 3, overlapping with the toilet training period.

Cystitis in children can be promoted by abnormalities in the urinary tract. Therefore, children with cystitis, especially those under age 5, deserve special follow-up to prevent later kidney damage.

Treating UTI’s Naturally – By: Nicole Bandes, Natural Health Coach

UTIs, or urinary tract infections, are infections that occur in the bladder, urethra or kidneys. While women suffer from UTIs most often, men are not immune. Generally, if a man has a UTI, he should address his concerns with a medical doctor because it may indicate a more serious condition affecting the prostate.

The most common symptoms of a UTI are frequent and urgent needs to urinate even if the bladder is empty, burning upon urination and sometimes abdominal cramping. It is now possible to determine if you have a UTI at home. Most pharmacies sell reagent strips that can be used to detect the presence of bacteria in the urine much the same way a doctor’s office will.

Many UTIs can be treated naturally at home. The most well known folk remedy for UTIs is to drink cranberry juice. There is actually a great deal of scientific evidence that suggests cranberries can inhibit bacteria from attaching to the lining of the urinary tract which will prevent and even treat UTIs. What has always seemed to get lost in the translation is that the cranberry juice must be as natural as possible (no added sweeteners) and should be a high concentrate of cranberries rather than some cranberry and a lot of grape or other juice type. This type of juice is usually not available in a regular grocery store. It can, however, often be purchased from a health food or natural foods store. To effectively treat a UTI, it is necessary to drink a large amount (approximately a gallon per day) until symptoms clear up and then to drink about half as much for a minimum of 10 additional days.

Natural, pure cranberry juice can be very tart. If you prefer, you can take a cranberry juice supplement instead. Some high quality supplements will combine cranberry with Buchu, a diuretic which will help ease the feeling of needing to urinate when the bladder is empty. Remember to take these frequently throughout the day (every 3 to 4 hours is best) and with plenty of fresh, clean water.

Colloidal Silver and Garlic may be used as a natural antibiotic which will destroy the bacteria in the urinary tract. When using garlic supplements, it is important to use garlic that does not have the odor component removed as this is the part of the garlic that is antibacterial. If you are concerned about odor, use a garlic supplement that is combined with chlorophyll and is enteric coated.

Things to avoid during a UTI

* Citrus fruits: May cause an alkaline environment which will encourage bacterial growth.
* Sugars, processed foods, caffeine, carbonated beverages and alcohol.
* Feminine hygiene sprays, packaged douches, bubble baths, and tampons.

With diligence, most UTI’s can be remedied at home. However, if there is blood present in the urine or symptoms persist for longer than 1 week, a doctor should be consulted as it may indicate a more serious UTI that must be treated with antibiotics.

Tips for Preventing Urinary Tract Infections

The most important tip to prevent urinary tract infections, bladder infections, and kidney infections is to practice good personal hygiene. Always wipe from front to back after a bowel movement or urination, and wash the skin around and between the rectum and vagina daily. Washing before and after sexual intercourse may also decrease a woman’s risk of UTI.
Drinking plenty of fluids (water) each day will help flush bacterium out of the urinary system and emptying the bladder as soon as the urge to urinate occurs may also help to decrease the risk of bladder infection or UTI. Some physicians recommend urinating before and after sex as well as a mean of flushing out any bacteria that may enter the urethra during sexual intercourse.
Vitamin C makes the urine acidic and helps to reduce the number of potentially harmful bacteria in the urinary tract system.
Wear only panties with a cotton crotch–cotton allows moisture to escape whereas other materials may trap moisture and create a potential breeding ground for bacteria.
Cranberry juice often helps to reduce frequency of bladder infections. Cranberry supplements and cranberry juice are available over-the-counter and many women find they work amazingly quickly when an UTI has occurred, however, a physician’s diagnosis is still necessary even if cranberry juice or herbals reduce pain or symptoms.
If you experience frequent urinary tract infections changing sexual positions that cause less friction on the urethra may help. Some physicians prescribe an antibiotic to be taken immediately following sex for women who tend to have frequent UTIs.
Things to Remember…

Although urinary tract infections are common and distinctly painful they are usually easy to treat once properly diagnosed and only last a few days. When treated promptly and properly urinary tract infections are rarely serious.

Causes and Risk Factors of UTI

Escherichia coli (E. Coli) causes about 80% of UTIs in adults. These bacteria are normally present in the colon and may enter the urethral opening from the skin around the anus and genitals. Women may be more susceptible to UTI because their urethral opening is near the source of bacteria (e.g., anus, vagina) and their urethra is shorter, providing bacteria easier access to the bladder. Other bacteria that cause urinary tract infections include Staphylococcus saprophyticus (5 to 15% of cases), Chlamydia trachomatis, and Mycoplasma hominis. Men and women infected with chlamydia trachomatis or mycoplasma hominis can transmit the bacteria to their partner during sexual intercourse, causing UTI.

Sexual intercourse triggers UTI in some women, for unknown reasons. Women who use a diaphragm develop infections more often, and condoms with spermicidal foam may cause the growth of E. Coli in the vagina, which may enter the urethra.

Urinary catheterization (small tube inserted into the bladder through the urethra to drain urine) can also cause UTI by introducing bacteria into the urinary tract. The risk for developing a UTI increases when long-term catheterization is required.

In infants, bacteria from soiled diapers can enter the urethra and cause UTI. E. Coli may also enter the urethral opening when young girls do not wipe from front to back after a bowel movement.

Other risk factors include the following:

Bladder outlet obstructions (e.g., kidney stones, BPH)
Conditions that cause incomplete bladder emptying (e.g., spinal cord injury)
Congenital (present at birth) abnormalities of the urinary tract (e.g., vasicoureteral reflux)
Suppressed immune system
Being uncircumcised
Certain blood types enable bacteria to attach more easily to cells that line the urinary tract, causing recurrent UTIs.

Help with prostate infection!?I’m 21… Male… Honestly a virgin. About 6 days ago I noticed I had a hard time starting to pee. But peeing didn’t hurt and wasn’t abnormal in any other way. I went to the doctor yesterday and they did a urinalysis and said it shows there is an infection.. But I don’t have symptoms of a bladder infection… My prostate is swollen and hurts… They say it’s a prostate infection. They prescribed me with 5 days worth of antibiotics (Sulfamethoxalone) This is my second day taking them and I’m not noticing a change… Also 5 days worth doesn’t seem like nearly enough. What can anyone recommend I do and has anyone else had this problem and how did you resolve it and how long did it take to go away? I am about to lose my mind.

[display_name id=”0″]I’m sorry to hear that but prostate infections are usually really difficult to get rid of. You have to wait longer and see if you need to take different anti-biotics. See if taking natural supplements like Super beta Prostate helps too. Ask your doctor and hang in there!

Could this be prostate cancer?Im 21 and I have discomfort in penis, back pain, also I think I saw a bit of blood in urine however, I probably imagined it or something because after I urinated there was no blood in the toilet, ive been many times since then and its always clear and normal, should I be worried about prostate cancer or kidney failure? What terrifies me is my granddad died of it at 75.

[display_name id=”0″]I am a nurse and I also have had prostate cancer. Blood in the urine is often a sign of a bladder infection. If you have only seen it once I would tend to ignore it. However the discomfort and back pain lead me to think you should get your urine tested for a urinary tract infection. If you have one they will give you some antibiotic that will clear it right up. Meanwhile drink a lot of fluids (to flush your bladder) and get some cranberry concentrate capsules at the drugstore. Cranberry being a natural kind of antibiotic for the urinary tract. I can almost assure you that you totally do not have prostate cancer at your age.…
