The prostate calcification, stones, fibrosis are scar the prostate inflammation did, but some calcification patients don’t have symptoms, even some urologist tell don’t need treat calcification, it determinately is wrong, because calcification is premonitor of prostate stones, if don’t treat it timely the calcification will become stones to bring more difficult to treatment.
Although prostate calcification are a common manifestation, the relationship between calcifications and prostate cancer is not clearly documented as in breast cancer. In addition, anatomical distribution of calcifications by zones of the prostate and ejaculatory system has not been systematically studied. To study the frequency and patterns of calcifications within the prostate and ejaculatory system, we reviewed the whole mount sections of 298 consecutive prostatectomy or cystoprostatectomy specimens. Calcifications were evaluated in the prostate (central, peripheral and transition zones, and verumontanum), ejaculatory ducts, and seminal vesicles. We graded the degree of calcifications as mild, moderate, or severe.
Prostate calcification and ejaculatory system were common, and their frequency in our series is as follows: 88.6% (264/298) of prostates, 58.1% (173/298) of seminal vesicles, and 17.1% (51/298) of ejaculatory ducts. The prostatic calcifications occurred mostly in benign glands and/or stroma of all zones and the verumontanum. Calcifications were more common in the transition zone than other zones. There were 4 cases of prostatic calcifications in the areas of prostatic adenocarcinoma: 3 cases with calcifications in the tumor glands and 1 case with calcifications in tumor stroma but not in the accompanying tumor glands. In conclusion, calcifications are a very common finding in prostatectomy specimens and seem mostly to be associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia. However, calcifications can occur in direct association with prostatic adenocarcinoma, although the incidence of this association is not as high as in breast carcinoma. Also, ejaculatory system calcifications are not an infrequent finding.
The prostate calcification causes main is blockage in prostate gland. Prostate is sex gland, during sexual life, erection, ejaculate, the prostate always is engorgement and congestion, when engorgement action is over and over, the prostate gland tubes become swollen, circulation is blocked, blood has sediment, just like river flows slowly to remain silt which make flow more slowly then cause more silt, the process is a vicious circle. So prostate calcification and stones reason is same with the river flows, the sediment become blockage in prostate tubes, more and more blockage stop the prostate circle, make tubes swollen to oppress the bladder, bowel, abdominal cavity organ, make pelvis pain or urine pain. bring other else symptoms, of course, if enlarged prostate calcification doesn't oppress other organs, maybe don't feel symptoms, but calcification never stop deposite unless remove prostatic calcifications and stones, calcification only grows more and more larger to become stones.
