What is prostate adenoma?
Prostate adenoma is a benign tumor affecting men (around 75-85% of men over 40-50 years develop a microscopic prostate adenoma). The prostate adenoma is evolving slowly, over the years, so it can only be discovered in time if it is regularly controlled.
The prostate is a gland at the base of the bladder, found only in men and it surrounds the upper part of the urethra. When we talk about prostate adenoma, the prostate is enlarged in size and obstructs the urethra, affecting the patient’s quality of life.
What are the causes of prostate adenoma?
Causes of prostate adenoma are multiple. First, aging and metabolic alterations may lead to the appearance of the prostate adenoma. Testicular activity deficiency, alcohol consumption, smoking, high blood pressure, obesity, and diabetes are also factors that cause the appearance of prostate adenoma.
Stages of prostate adenoma
Prostate adenoma has an evolution that can be classified into three stages:
- the microscopic adenoma
- macroscopic adenoma
- prostate adenoma.
Thus, each stage involves different treatments.
Symptoms of prostate adenoma
The prostate adenoma is clinically manifested in the third stage (clinical prostate adenoma). Thus, among the most common symptoms are:
- feeling uncomfortable during urination
- frequent urination both day and night
- modified urinary jet
- mictional imperiosity (the urine sensation appears suddenly and the moment of urination cannot be postponed)
- urinary infections caused by the inability to completely empty the bladder
- fatigue caused by nocturnal awakening.
How to diagnose prostate adenoma?
The diagnosis is made by the urologist doctor, following detailed control, starting with the anamnesis. Then there will be a physical check, which can determine the existence of an enlarged prostate.
Besides these, blood and urine tests are also important, as well as ultrasound and urography.
How can prostate adenoma be treated?
Depending on the stage of the prostate adenoma, and depending on the general health of the patient and the related conditions (if there are any), treatment of the prostate adenoma may consist of:
- drug therapy (acting on the hormone component that causes prostate modification)
- transurethral electroporation of the prostate
- endoscopic treatment (abdominal prostate ablation)
- surgical treatment.
The thermal device with jade stones for perineum – hemorrhoids and prostate adenoma can treat the prostate adenoma
Depending on the severity of the prostate adenoma, it can be successfully treated with alternative therapies, such as jade stones, specifically with the thermal device with jade stones.
The prostate adenoma reacts very well to the procedure called “local hyperthermia”, so the perineum device is used to create a thermal moxibustion effect and to guarantee therapeutic benefits. You can set the temperature at which the device will operate: between 40grade C – 65grade C.
Jade stones through the action of heating emit negative ions that help the inflammation to recede over time and then prevent it from recurring. As a matter of fact, blood oxygen levels in the area increase, and urinary infections adjacent to the prostate adenoma will also be treated and prevented in the future.

We wish you all the best and we encourage you to go to the doctor whenever you have unpleasant symptoms, especially as the prostate adenoma can cause unpleasantness if it is not treated in time.
