Finger prostate examination, which plays a key role in the early diagnosis of prostate cancer and which should be routinely performed once a year, especially after the age of 50, is very important for early diagnosis, although this method is a method that many men avoid. In fact, although prostate examination is not much different from other organ examinations, its perception is different and homophobic for psychological reasons. On the other hand, the most common teaching developed under religious and cultural influences in the society is that the anal region is considered a forbidden, shameful and sinful region, that it should be hidden and hidden; that is, the anus is tabooed.
Young people are more afraid
Studies indicate that young men experience more fear of finger examination, and this fear tends to decrease with age. Although this examination method is mostly used in people over the age of 50, it is sometimes necessary in patients with prostate inflammation.
Although there is a belief in the society that “young people do not have prostate”, Eskiçrapçı says that this belief is not true and uses the following statements on the subject: “The prostate is an organ and it is present in every man from the mother’s womb. In prepubertal boys, the prostate gland is dysfunctional and weighs 3-6g. it is very small. The increase in male hormones with puberty enlarges the prostate gland, prostate 20g. reaches weight and begins to secrete semen fluid together with the seminal sac. This fluid is produced to protect the sperm cells as they make their way to the female reproductive tracts. The prostate, which remains the same size until the mid-40s, begins to grow again afterward. Type 3 prostatitis is the most common form and occurs in young people. Unfortunately, this type is difficult to diagnose and treat. These patients usually apply to the doctor with pain in the urinary tract and testicles, even in the anus and leg. Urinary complaints are also common at the time of application.
The most common problem at young ages is inflammation of the prostate gland. Benign prostatic enlargement (BPH) and cancer are very rare at this age. Prostate-related diseases can be seen in young people.
