Don't think that prostate problems only occur after middle age. The prostate maintains a normal size when you turned 30, but there is a chance that it may undergo changes with hormonal shifts. If you do not pay attention to strengthening and caring for it, there is a possibility that it may gradually develop into benign prostatic hyperplasia, compressing the urethra and causing difficulties in urination. Caring for the prostate should start from a young age.
Here are 8 tips for prostate care:
Avoid holding urine as much as possible, as habitual urine retention can damage the prostate.
Drink an adequate amount of water every day, around 6-7 cups of fluid beverages (reduce intake before bedtime).
Avoid high-fat and spicy foods, and limit alcohol consumption.
Avoid excessive use of medications for colds, coughs, or nasal congestion, as they can tighten the urethra and worsen prostate enlargement.
Engage in moderate exercise weekly, such as brisk walking or jogging, and avoid prolonged sitting.
Adjust your work and lifestyle pace to maintain a relaxed state of mind.
