Blue Ball Disease – Precursor to Prostate Cancer
Blue Ball Disease or not ?
Blue ball is
not a disease; it’s a symptom in reality. It’s caused by the congestion
produced due to the vasoconstriction in the genitals including external
genitalia, prostate and in testis, as usual external genitalia become
hyperemic when the erection occurs but in this case the ejaculation
doesn’t occurs and it causes a painful sensation. It can be also caused
by the frequent emissions too.
The condition usually prevails during the sexual contact. Normally the body has increased circulation of blood to these parts in such process, but in this case the blood stagnates due to vasoconstriction and it leads to accumulation of lactic acid and pain results. The condition is also known as epididymal hypertension since the epididymis is the place were the sperm get matured and hence inflammation of the epididymis cause the ejaculation of sperm into the spermatic tubes and it causes the hypertensive condition.
How It Occurs ?
of inflammation is usually caused by the sexually transmitted disease
and from the varicosity in the veins of epididymis
congestion of the epididymis and prostate always leads to the urine
incontinence due to the fact that the prostatic tissue becomes more
flaccid and enlargement of the prostate results. As in every other part
in the body, chronic irritation of a part may lead to the development
of the cancer or so called malignant condition. The constant pooling
of the blood will lead to the infection by the bacteria. And it will
lead to prostatitis; chronic prostatitis is lead to prostatic cancer.
At the same time the constant irritation to the testis and epididymis
lead to malignant changes to the part also. The metastasis to the adjacent
organs which is the prostate also getting the chance of getting chronically
hypertrophy of the prostate which is a common condition will be outcome
of the syndrome called the blue ball disease, with the increases amount
of the testosterone will lead to the prostatic cancer.
taken like surgical correction of the chronic epididymitis, as well
as the benign hypertrophy of the prostate will help to the reduce the
chance of prostatic cancer as well as the blue ball disease. Hormonal
treatment is effective to cut down the testosterone level in the blood
and it helps to reduce the chance of prostatic cancer.
