Prostate Debris

Prostate debris can be fatty deposits, dead tissue, pus (white blood cells that fight infection), stones (mostly calcium that the body uses to coat a foreign object) and/or other foreign material that does not belong in the prostate. An example of other foreign material is the "hairy' debris shown in photos you will see on this site.

I found that passing prostate debris was not painful. Most often, I was unaware of the passage until I looked at the water in the bath. On two occasions I did feel a slight twinge in my urethra (the big pipe in the penis) when I was passing stones.

Prostate debris, when passed, was very wet and mucus-like. It was collected and then dried and taped to the paper.

Prostate debris, such as that shown in the photo, can block the acini in a prostate. Bacteria lodged and hidden behind the debris can be the source of infection that is characteristic of prostatitis. The infection can flare up from time to time because the hidden bacteria is never completely wiped out , even after being treated with antibiotics.

Prostate debris can also cause swelling of the prostate, a condition known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, BPH or enlarged prostate.

Prostate debris can be removed by using Alternative Prostate Treatment to drain the prostate so that healing can begin and the prostate returned to normal function.
