How Does Sutureless Circumcision​ Technique (Shang Ring) Work

What is Male Adult Circumcision?

Male Adult circumcision is the removal of the excess foreskin from the penis.

There are many reasons to undergo a circumcision procedure. The benefits are listed below.

Benefits of Circumcision:

  • Prevention of balanitis (penile infection)
  • Better hygiene
  • Reduced risk of HIV and other STDs
  • Fewer risk of urinary tract infection
  • Prevention of phimosis (inability to retract foreskin) and paraphimosis (foreskin retracted and unable to return to original position)

Who should get a circumcision?

In medical terms, there are absolute and relative indications for getting a surgery/procedure done such as circumcision. There are only 2 absolute indications for circumcision – scarring and severe infection (BXO).

However, for relative indications, these are the reasons to consider circumcision

  • Those with previous or recurrent balanitis (penile infection)
  • Those unable to retract their foreskin fully to wash
  • Those with long and redundant foreskin, trapping urine and dirt
  • Those with the buildup of whitish “gunk” also known as smegma under the foreskin
  • Those with tight foreskin and unable to retract (phimosis)
  • Those who want to have a reduced risk of STDs, urinary tract infections or penile cancer
  • Those with painful and uncomfortable erections

How is the surgery performed?

We perform the surgery using a sutureless technique where it takes 10-15 mins to perform and is done under local anaesthesia. With this technique, the wound remains protected and does not tear or bleed, unlike the traditional circumcision methods.

What happens after the surgery?

ALL my patients are able to go back to normal activity immediately after the surgery and this should not hinder with your work or study in anyway, however, you will be out of vigorous activity, sports for at least 3 weeks.

There are many advantages to the Circumcision procedure done at Dr Tan and Partners (DTAP Clinic) which include

  • Reduced surgery time from about 1 hour using the conventional method to 10 mins
  • No sutures necessary
  • Short procedure time (around 10 minutes)
  • Minimal bleeding
  • Frenulum preserved
  • Very low risk of complications
  • Excellent cosmesis
  • High satisfaction rate among patients

The cost for the circumcision procedure is $1926.00 and inclusive of follow up reviews.

Circumcision for adults (>21 years old) is currently only available at our following clinics:

What are the Causes of Hair Fall

Look around you in a busy place. Do you see a middle-aged or older gentleman who is balding? Chances are you probably will. Hair loss is something that affects a significant proportion of men as they age.

What are the Statistics for Hair Loss?

Statistics vary from country to country, but the American Hair Loss Association states that, by the age of 35, two-thirds of men will experience some degree of appreciable hair fall, and by the age of 50 approximately 85% of men have significantly thinning hair. But hair fall does not just affect males. It can affect females as well.

Hair Follicles

Each person on average has about 100,000 hair follicles on their heads. If everything is intact, you will have a nice crop of hair.

Hair follicles go through 3 main phases of growth – anagen, catagen and telogen.

Anagen Phase

The first is the anagen phase, where the root of the hair is dividing rapidly, adding to the hair length. Hair grows at about 1cm every month during this phase, and this phase can last anywhere from 2-7 years.

Catagen Phase

The next phase is the catagen phase, where at the hair itself is cut off from its blood supply and from the cells that produce new hair. This lasts for about 2-3 weeks.

Telogen Phase

Lastly, the telogen phase where the hair follicle rests, and the hair that was grown is released and falls out. Not all the hair follicles are in the same phase at the same time, and about 100 hairs are shed daily from a normal scalp.

If everything is normal for you, the telogen phase would not last too long, and re-enter the anagen phase after about 3 months.

Why Do People Lose Head Hair?

There are a variety of reasons why this may be so. Sometimes, the hair follicles are forced to cut short their anagen phase and enter the telogen phase prematurely. This can happen during times of extreme stress or if you have fallen ill.

In some people, the hair follicle may be killed off by the body’s own defence systems. The hair follicle may also be affected by fungal or bacterial skin infections.

Hormone DihydroTestosterone (DHT)

The majority of head hair fall that affects men is due to the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

In men, the 5-alpha-reductase (5-AR) enzyme converts testosterone into DHT in the testes and the prostate.

Up to 10 per cent of testosterone is normally converted into DHT. DHT is more powerful than testosterone as a male hormone. It attaches to the same receptors as testosterone, but more easily and for longer periods of time.

The hair follicles on the head contain this receptor and when DHT binds to them, the follicles slowly become miniaturized, the anagen phase is reduced, and the telogen phase becomes longer.

Over time, the anagen phase becomes so short that the new hairs do not even grow past the surface of the skin. Telogen hair is less well-anchored to the scalp, making it easier to fall out. As the follicles become smaller, the shaft of the hair becomes thinner with each cycle of growth.

Eventually, hairs are reduced to soft thin hairs, and can eventually stop growing. For reasons that are not well understood, DHT is essential for most other bodily hair growth, but it is detrimental to head hair growth. That is why you can see a bald man with a full beard.

How your hair follicle responds to DHT and how long your anagen phase is are usually genetically predetermined.

What Can We Do About Your Falling Crop of Hair?

So knowing the above, what can we do about your falling crop of hair? We know that stress can affect your hair.

Late nights, poor diets and stress can disrupt hormonal balances and reduce your blood circulation to your scalp, leading to hair fall. So a healthy lifestyle is a solution to that – reduce your stress, exercise regularly, eat healthily, and sleep adequately.

Washing your hair too much can strip your scalp of natural oils needed for a healthy scalp. If you do not wash enough and it may cause a build-up of oils in follicles and prevent hair growth. To find the balance with appropriate shampoo and frequency of wash. Active people may need to wash their hair more often, and less active people may only need to wash their hair every other day.

If you use hair products, ensure they do not contain too harsh chemicals as that might irritate your hair follicle causing your hair to drop. Make sure these products are washed off completely at the end of the day as well.

Chemical treatments like hair dyes and heat therapies may also affect your hair follicle, so space these treatments apart. Brushing your scalp (gently) can stimulate blood circulation to the scalp which is essential for hair growth.

Medical Hair Loss Treatment

Should all of these lifestyle changes not work, one thing you have to understand is that prevention is better than cure. Once your hair follicle is dead, there is very little we can do about it.

At this point in time, medical care can play a part. Treatment for hair fall can start even as early as the 20s to prevent or slow down the process of follicle miniaturisation before it’s too late.

There are a variety of things doctors can do. Topical medications can be applied to the scalp to stimulate hair growth.

There are non-invasive methods like hair serums, light therapy and laser therapy.

There is another hair fall treatment known as Regenera Activa. This is a hair growth technology from Europe that has gone through clinical trials and has achieved approval as a medical device.

Visible results can be seen in a few months and effects can last for at least a year. There are also medications that we can prescribe to block the formation of DHT.

If all else fails, then the last resort is usually a hair transplant.

I hope this short introduction to hair fall, its prevention and some of the treatments have given you some information that is useful.

When in doubt, consult your doctor, and don’t be shy about it. We too, want a full crop of hair for you!

Causes of Erectile Dysfunction & Treatment Options (Video)

Erectile Dysfunction or ED in short and the treatment options

First, What is Erectile Dysfunction?

It occurs when a man is unable to get or keep an erection that allows for penetration during sexual activity.

Is Erectile Dysfunction common?

It is estimated that 1 in 4 to 1 in 5 men over the age of 40 have the issue
And it becomes more common as we grow older
So What are the Cause of Erectile Dysfunction?
ED is usually multi-factorial meaning that there are many factors that can cause the issue

  1. Age
  2. Chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes
  3. Low testosterone levels (See: Andropause)
  4. Certain medicines or drugs like alcohol
  5. Psychological factors like stress, anxiety, new partner

For the let’s discuss what are some treatment options if you have Erectile Dysfunction.

The most common Erectile Dysfunction Treatment option is Medicine

There are tablets, such as Viagra and Cialis you can take or inject prior to your sexual contact that can help with ED
They work by increasing blood flow to the penis.
Treatment option 2 is by using a Penile vacuum device. It Works by creating a vacuum, which forces the blood into the penis; a ring is then used to prevent the blood from flowing out from the penis thus maintaining an erection
A more invasive option is by surgical penile implants can be inserted by surgeons
Another Erectile Dysfunction treatment option is by undergoing Electroshockwave therapy or ESWT in short
One of the causes of Erectile Dysfunction is the poor flow of blood into the penis caused by unhealthy blood vessels.
By shooting multiple low-intensity shockwaves into the penis, new and healthy blood vessels develop. This is known as neo-vascularization.

It works by delivering painless low-intensity shock waves into the penis. This stimulates the penis to make new blood vessels. More blood vessels mean better blood flow into the penis and better erections.
Each treatment session lasts about 15 minutes and is completely painless. A patient can resume his normal activities immediately after the treatment.
Usually, 6 to 12 treatment sessions are recommended.


If you think you may be suffering from ED, please visit your doctor for further assessment and treatment at our men’s clinics.

Common Causes of Penile Itching and Pubic Itching

A myriad of conditions can cause a man to have penile itching or pubic itching. The excruciating urge to scratch and relieve that itch at such an inconvenient part of the body can be a major source of embarrassment to some. When severe, it can result in extreme discomfort in the day, and disrupt one’s sleep at night.

 

Here are some of the causes of Penile Itching and Pubic Itching:

 

6 Common Causes of Penile Itch:

 

1. Balanitis

Balanitis is a common infection of the foreskin and head of the penis. It is caused by bacteria or fungus, or a combination of both.

Symptoms include redness, swelling, discomfort, penile itching, and sometimes pain when passing urine.
(See: Penile Infection, Infection of the Penis)

When fungal infection (candidiasis) is present, a whitish cottage cheese-like discharge can be found under the foreskin. Balanitis is often hygiene related, but can also be caused by STDs. It is more likely to occur in uncircumcised males.  Watch: What are the causes of Foreskin Infection (Balanitis)

2. Genital Herpes

Genital herpes is caused by the Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV). Itching of the penis (penile itching) is usually the first symptom and can occur in other areas such as the scrotum, groin, buttocks and anus.

Shortly after, tiny clusters of fluid-filled blisters or ulcers can develop and these are usually painful. Other symptoms include painful urination, enlarged groin lymph nodes, fever and body aches. The virus can lie dormant in the body for years without causing any symptoms, therefore some people may not even be aware that they are infected.

Read: Genital Blister, Genital Ulcers & Genital Warts & Causes of Oral Herpes (Cold Sore)

 

3. Genital Warts

Genital warts are caused by the Human Papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted disease. They appear as flesh-coloured growths that can cluster and resemble a cauliflower. Most of the time they do not have any symptoms but can sometimes itch. Bleeding can also occur during sexual intercourse.

Read: Genital Warts Treatment

 

4. Contact Dermatitis

Contact dermatitis is a skin reaction to contact with an irritant. This can happen anywhere on the body, including the penis. When this happens, it is usually caused by latex condom usage. The skin of the penis can turn red and itchy.

Sometimes the skin can break causing serious discharge, and bacterial infection can occur. Mild cases can be treated with a corticosteroid cream. Non-latex condoms can be used if you have a latex allergy.

 

5. Urethritis

One of the causes of penile itching is Urethritis. Urethritis refers to inflammation of the urethra, the tube that carries urine from the bladder to outside the body. This condition most often causes pain or itching in the penis, which worsens when passing urine.

Other symptoms include urethral discharge, urinary frequency or urgency, difficulty urinating, and blood in the semen. Urethritis is most commonly caused by a bacterial infection and can be sexually transmitted. See other STD Symptoms 

 

6. Psoriasis

Psoriasis on elbows.

Genital psoriasis often occurs alongside psoriasis of the skin. Skin cells develop at an extremely fast rate, resulting in the accumulation of skin cells on the skin surface, building up into itchy, red plaques of scaly skin. See Psoriasis Treatment

5 Common Causes of Pubic Itch

 

1. Jock Itch

Also known as tinea cruris, jock itch is a fungal infection of the skin in the genital area, groin and buttocks. The rash is usually itchy, red, scaly and ring-shaped. It tends to occur in people who sweat a lot and/or are overweight.

 

2. Pubic Lice

More commonly known as crabs, these are tiny parasitic insects that attach to the hair and skin in the pubic region. Pubic lice can be easily spread via sexual contact or other forms of close contact, and can spread to other body areas with coarse hair such as beards, armpits and chest hair. It is also possible for pubic lice to spread by using an infected person’s clothes, towels, or bed.

 

3. Folliculitis

This is a condition in which hair follicles become inflamed and is usually caused by bacterial or fungal infection, or inflammation from ingrown hair. Initially, the affected hair follicles may have small red bumps or white-headed pimples, but can swell and become painful and subsequently develop into crusty sores.

 

4. Contact Dermatitis

As mentioned earlier, this condition can also occur in the pubic area.

 

5. Molluscum Contagiosum (mo-LUS-kum kun-tay-jee-OH-sum)

Molluscum Contagiousum is a benign viral infection of the skin and is caused by the molluscum contagiosum virus, resulting in painless, small, shiny pearl-shaped lesions. They can happen anywhere on the body as a result of contact, but when they occur in the genital area, it is usually as a result of sexual contact. They can appear alone or in clusters. They usually do not cause any symptoms, but can sometimes itch.

Hipogonadisme – Penyebab, Gejala & Pengobatan

Apakah semua pria mengalami gejala Hipogonadisme (Andropause atau Menopause Pria) atau apakah beberapa pria bahkan tidak menyadari bahwa mereka sedang mengalaminya? Hipogonadisme pria adalah suatu kondisi di mana tubuh tidak menghasilkan cukup testosteron.

English: What are the Causes, Symptoms & Treatment of Hypogonadism 

Doktor yang boleh berbahasa melayu


Hipogonadisme pria Vs. Andropause (Menopause Pria)

Secara teknis, istilah andropause (Menopause Pria) tidak ada dalam bidang medis. Ini karena tidak seperti penurunan besar kadar estrogen pada wanita yang mengalami menopause, tidak ada penurunan tingkat testosteron pada pria sehingga tidak ada “pause”. Lebih tepatnya, itu harus diistilahkan sebagai defisiensi androgen atau sindrom defisiensi testosteron atau hipogonadisme pria.


Mengapa Testosteron Penting?

Testosteron penting sepanjang kehidupan pria mana pun.
Ini menentukan perkembangan karakteristik seksual pria selama perkembangan janin. Tanpa testosteron pada saat yang tepat dari perkembangan janin, genitalia pria eksternal tidak akan membesar.
Selama masa pubertas, pria perlu mengembangkan karakteristik seksual sekunder seperti rambut wajah, rambut kemaluan, pembesaran penis dan testis hingga ukuran dewasa.
Dalam kasus di mana terdapat infeksi pada testis, atau trauma atau cedera pada testis atau testis yang tidak turun sebelum masa pubertas, maka pria tidak mengembangkan karakteristik seksual sekunder tersebut.
Ia diperlukan untuk produksi sperma oleh testis. Testosteron juga diperlukan untuk menjaga kesehatan tulang secara langsung dan tidak langsung karena beberapa testosteron dikonversi menjadi estrogen yang juga membantu menjaga kesehatan tulang.
Ini juga membantu dalam mempertahankan massa otot yang secara tidak langsung meningkatkan kadar lemak tubuh.
Testosteron juga dapat memengaruhi mood dan dorongan seksual pada pria dan juga dapat memengaruhi ereksi.
Ada juga semakin banyak bukti yang menunjukkan bahwa testosteron adalah faktor yang perlu dipertimbangkan untuk kesehatan jantung. Sejumlah penelitian telah menunjukkan bahwa pria yang memiliki penyakit arteri koroner memiliki kadar testosteron yang lebih rendah.
Tingkat testosteron yang rendah juga dikaitkan dengan peningkatan risiko kanker prostat tingkat tinggi.


Apa Gejala Utama Testosteron Rendah?

Gejala umum dari testosteron rendah adalah:

  1. Tingkat Energi Rendah
  2. Perubahan Suasana Hati atau Iritabilitas
  3. Konsentrasi yang buruk
  4. Mengurangi Kekuatan Otot
  5. Libido rendah
  6. Masalah Ereksi (kesulitan ereksi atau mempertahankan ereksi)

Questionaire tentang Kekurangan Testosteron

Anda juga dapat menggunakan kuesioner di bawah ini sebagai alat untuk menilai kemungkinan kekurangan testosteron

  1. Apakah Anda mengalami penurunan libido (dorongan seksual)?
  2. Apakah Anda kekurangan energi?
  3. Apakah Anda memiliki penurunan kekuatan dan / atau daya tahan?
  4. Apakah Anda kehilangan ketinggian?
  5. Pernahkah Anda memperhatikan ‘kenikmatan hidup’ yang menurun?
  6. Apakah Anda sedih dan / atau pemarah?
  7. Apakah ereksi Anda kurang kuat?
  8. Sudahkah Anda mencatat kemunduran kemampuan bermain olahraga baru-baru ini?
  9. Apakah Anda tertidur setelah makan malam?
  10. Apakah ada penurunan kinerja kerja Anda saat ini?

Jika Anda menjawab ya untuk Pertanyaan 1 atau 7 dan 3 pertanyaan lainnya, maka Anda mungkin ingin menemui dokter Anda untuk mendiskusikan kekurangan testosteron.


Apakah Testosteron Rendah Berbahaya Dengan Cara Apa Pun?

(Haruskah pria khawatir tentang penurunan kadar testosteron?)
Ada semakin banyak bukti yang menunjukkan hubungan antara kadar testosteron rendah dan risiko kardiovaskular dan juga kematian (kematian). Masih perlu dijelaskan lebih lanjut, apakah testosteron rendah menyebabkan peningkatan risiko kardiovaskular / kematian atau sebaliknya.
Seperti disebutkan sebelumnya, ada beberapa penelitian yang menunjukkan bahwa ada risiko kanker prostat tingkat tinggi pada pria dengan kadar testosteron rendah. Selain itu, kadar testosteron yang rendah dikaitkan dengan diabetes, obesitas, dan kadar kolesterol tinggi. Ditemukan rata-rata pria sangat gemuk memiliki kadar testosteron 25% lebih rendah daripada pria tidak gemuk.

 


Apa Pilihan Perawatan untuk Testosteron Rendah?

Jika testosteron Anda rendah tetapi tanpa gejala, konsensus umum adalah untuk tidak diobati. Namun, ada cara non-farmasi untuk meningkatkan kadar testosteron Anda.

  1. Latihan ketahanan atau Resistance training

Latihan ketahanan – ada sejumlah kajian yang menunjukkan bahwa resistance training  bisa meningkatkan kadar testosteron walaupun hanya sementara.

  1. High intensity Interval Training (HIIT)

Pelatihan Interval Intensitas Tinggi (HIIT) juga dapat meningkatkan kadar testosteron hingga 17% dalam kajian setelah 6 bulan latihan.

  1. Mengurangi Lemak Tubuh

Mengurangi kadar lemak tubuh melalui diet dan olahraga yang tepat dapat meningkatkan kadar testosteron juga.


Tanya Jawab tentang Hipogonadisme:

 

1. Apa Perbedaan Antara Hipogonadisme dan Testosteron Rendah?

Anda dapat memiliki kadar testosteron yang rendah tetapi selagi anda tidak memiliki gejala yang disebabkan oleh testosteron, anda tidak memiliki sindrom kekurangan testosteron atau kekurangan androgen.

 

2. Apakah Hipogonadisme biasa?

Satu dari 10 pria yang lebih tua mungkin memiliki sindrom kekurangan testosteron.

 

3. Bagaimana Hypogonadism Diobati?

Ada berbagai cara untuk menggantikan Testosterone yang tersedia di Singapura.


4. Injeksi testosteron:
Ini adalah pilihan bagi mereka yang tidak ingin minum obat setiap hari. Umumnya, suntikan ini diberikan setiap 8-12 minggu tergantung pada keperluan individu. Ada juga suntikan jangka pendek tetapi orang itu harus  nyaman dengan suntikan diri


5. Kapsul Testosteron:
Ini adalah pilihan bagi mereka yang tidak suka jarum dan lebih suka minum obatnya. Penyerapan tergantung pada diet (lebih baik dengan makanan berlemak tinggi).


6. Gel testosteron:
Cara ini memberikan tingkat penyerapan terbaik dan paling stabil dibandingkan dengan 2 pilihan yang sebelumnya. Ini juga merupakan pilihan termudah bagi kebanyakan orang karena hanya perlu mengoleskan gel pada kulit.
Namun, beberapa orang merasa tidak nyaman untuk menggunakannya karena perlu menunggu gel kering .
Ia juga ada risiko transfer testosteron secara tidak sengaja ke pasangan wanita atau anak-anak jika tersentuh.

6 Common Causes of Penile Discolouration

Most men tend to not pay regular attention to their general skin condition, but when it comes to matters of the penis, it is almost always a cause for immediate concern; after all, it is the source of our manhood. More often than not, any unusual appearance such as discolouration, dry skin, red spots or bumps may result in considerable anxiety.

It is not uncommon for men, especially those with darker skin, to have slight variations in the colour of the penis. In fact, for men of all races, it is normal for the penis to be slightly darker than the skin on the rest of the body. This applies also to the labia of women.

When an adolescent male or female undergoes puberty, the body produces the sex hormones, testosterone and oestrogen, which results in the development of secondary sexual characteristics. Excess levels of these hormones in the genitals respond to melanocytes, the skin cells that cause pigmentation. These physiological changes are responsible for darker genitalia in both men and women.

Mild penile discolouration is generally nothing to worry about. In fact, during sexual arousal, the penis can take on a reddish, sometimes almost purplish colour, due to increased blood flow to the organ. However, there are other causes of penile discolouration that may be more severe and require treatment.

 

6 Common Causes of Penile Discolouration

 

via GIPHY

1. Contact Dermatitis

Contact dermatitis is a skin reaction to contact with an irritant. This can happen anywhere on the body, including the penis. When this happens, it is usually caused by latex condom usage. The skin of the penis can turn red and itchy. Sometimes the skin can break causing serous discharge, and bacterial infection can occur. Mild cases can be treated with a corticosteroid cream. Non-latex condoms can be used if you have a latex allergy.

 

2. Penile Injury

A penile injury can lead to rapid discolouration due to bruising, in the form of purple, dark brown or even greenish hues. Sometimes, a red patch with prominent blood vessels just under the surface of the skin can occur due to a hematoma. This usually fades after several days and treatment is typically not necessary.

However, if there is severe pain along with the discolouration after a traumatic episode, immediate medical attention is required as this could be due to a penile fracture, which is a more severe issue.

 

3. Lichen Sclerosus

Lichen sclerosus is a lifelong condition that can go through periods of remission and flare-ups, and is characterised by white patches on the penis. It is more common in those who are uncircumcised. In addition to blotchy white spots, the skin of the penis can also become itchy, fragile and tear or bleed easily. Other symptoms include painful sex and an inability to retract the foreskin fully.

The cause of lichen sclerosus is unknown, but an overactive immune system or an imbalance of hormones may play a role. It is not contagious and cannot be transmitted through sexual intercourse. Treatment usually includes a strong steroid ointment applied directly to the affected skin. If only the foreskin is affected, circumcision may be advised.

 

4. Penile Melanosis or Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH)

Penile melanosis, or PIH, is a benign condition simply caused by overproduction of melanin, in which the skin can appear in a wide variety of colors including different shades of brown, grey or even blue.

Overproduction usually occurs after an injury to the skin of the penis, the most common being excessive rubbing of the penis from vigorous sex or self-pleasuring. It will fade over time, or if a man is bothered by it, possible treatments such as topical retinol (vitamin A) every night before bed, laser therapy, or microdermabrasion can help to reduce the discolouration.

 

5. Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs)

Purple sores on the penis can occur as a result of genital herpes or syphilis. These STDs can be accompanied by other symptoms such as pain, fever, itchiness, burning, and fatigue. If STD is suspected, it is imperative to head to a clinic to see a physician as soon as possible to be tested and get treated.

6. Penile Cancer

Penile cancer tends to start on the skin of the penis and spreads towards the deeper tissues. 95% are squamous cell carcinomas, while penile melanoma accounts for 0.7%. Penile cancer is rare and the cause is not entirely known, but risk factors include smoking, HIV and high risk strains of Human Papillomavirus (HPV) infection. Symptoms include changes in the colour and thickness of the skin of the penis, foul smelling discharge under the foreskin, and abnormal non-resolving growths or ulceration of the penis. A diagnosis of penile cancer requires an urgent biopsy.

 

There are other conditions that can cause penile discolouration. It is important to determine the exact cause as treatment varies according to the cause. It is always best to visit a doctor for a physical examination and proper evaluation.

Deng ananestesi lokal, Shang Ring akan dimasukkan ke dalam kulup. Kemudian, akan dijepit dari bagian luar dengan penjepit. Kelebihan kulit penis (kulup) di bagian atas cincin akan dilepaskan dengan menggunakan gunting bedah.

Cincin akan tetap pada posisinya, kemudian akan lepas dengan sendirinya setelah 3-4 minggu.

What is Chronic Prostatitis Symptom & Treatment?

What is Prostatitis?

Prostatitis refers to a group of conditions that usually cause inflammation of the prostate gland or surrounding structures in men, which results in pain or discomfort around the pelvis and a variety of urinary symptoms.
It can be classified into several categories which include:

  1. Acute Prostatitis,
  2. Chronic Bacterial Prostatitis,
  3. Chronic non-bacterial prostatitis, and
  4. Asymptomatic inflammatory prostatitis.

Prostatitis is very common, with up to 2-10% of men affected at any time. The majority of these cases will fall under chronic non-bacterial prostatitis, also known now as chronic pelvic pain syndrome – these account for about 95% of prostatitis diagnoses.
Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (CPPS) is due to inflammation of the prostate or inflammation in the organs and tissues in the pelvic region.

What are some of the Symptoms of Chronic Prostatitis?

Men with chronic pelvic pain syndrome can present with a number of symptoms, including pain at the perineum, testicles, penis, and lower back, pain while passing urine or after ejaculation, and urinary frequency or urgency.
They may also lead to erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation.
These symptoms can wax and wane, lasting for weeks to months. Many men can suffer for months at a time with these symptoms without getting the correct diagnosis or treatment.
The exact causes of chronic pelvic pain syndrome are not well known, but it may be triggered by combinations of stress, anxiety, hypersensitive nerves, increased muscle tension, previous infection, or even changes in diet or climate.

What are the Treatments for Chronic Prostatitis?

Treatment options for chronic prostatitis can vary depending on the underlying cause but may include a combination of antibiotics, anti-inflammatory medications, and neuromodulators. There is also evidence that some patients can respond well to Electroshockwave Therapy or ESWT for Prostate Inflammation.
If you need to speak to a doctor in regards to Chronic Prostatitis, please visit our clinics. Alternatively, you can email us hello@dtapclinic.com or call us for an appointment.
Take care.
