Prostate cancer is the most common cancer of the man.

Prostate cancer: the most common cancer in men

Prostate cancer must be clearly differentiated from benign enlargement of the prostate. With more than 3,300 new cases1 each year, prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men in Ireland. The good news is that almost all patients survive if it is detected early. Timely and regular preventive examinations (recommended as of the age of 40) are therefore incredibly important.

Prostate cancer causes similar clinical symptoms as BPH. If you have problems urinating, you must raise this problem with your GP and he might decide to have your PSA value (prostate specific antigen) measured. It is important to diagnose prostate cancer early. Regular follow-up examinations with a urologist will dispel any unnecessary concerns. Although sometimes the only option is to surgically remove the prostate. When detected early, the prognosis is significantly better.

Prostatitis is a complex disease. Only sometimes antibiotics are promising.


Prostatitis or inflammation of the prostate, is a complex and diffuse condition. It is differentiated into acute and chronic forms. The most common form is chronic pelvic pain syndrome (often referred to as chronic abacterial prostatitis). Acute prostate inflammations develop if bacteria colonise the prostate gland (acute bacterial prostatitis). 

Prostate inflammation has different symptoms. In most cases those affected experience pain in the lower abdomen, around the perineum or the bladder, frequent urges to urinate while also experiencing pain when urinating or ejaculating. In case of a bacterial infection, chills and fever may also occur.

Treatment with antibiotics is effective for bacterial infections. Therapy for chronic abacterial prostatitis and chronic pelvic pain syndrome is considerably more difficult because the cause is usually unclear.

Benign enlargement of the prostate, a common male problem

Benign prostatic hyperplasia is often manifested by nocturia. The disturbed sleep often leads to a considerable suffering pressure.
