Ayurvedic Treatment of Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome or Prostatitis


Chronic pelvic pain syndrome or prostatitis is an all too common male genitourinary condition characterized by episodes of pain and discomfort, usually in an unpredictable manner. In the normal adult, the prostate weighs approximately 20gm. It is a retroperitoneal organ encircling the neck of the bladder and urethra and is devoid of different capsules. Classically, the prostate has been divided into five lobes, two of which are attributed distinctive significance in the development of tumors and benign enlargements.  The first five lobes include a posterior, middle, anterior and two lateral lobes. But some investigations show that these five lobes become fused into three distinct lobes, two major lateral lobes and a small median lobe which presumably includes the classic posterior lobe.  In this article we will discuss how an infection can affect the prostate and what symptoms it will cause. In addition we will also consider the ayurvedic aspect of prostatitis conditions and what formulations are best for its management.


Male chronic pelvic pain syndrome or chronic prostatitis is an urological disorder that can affect males in any age. If we understand in terms of chronic pelvic pain syndrome then prostatitis is termed as category 3 prostatitis or chronic prostatitis. The pain in the pelvis is associated in 90% of the cases and represents itself as the primary symptom of non bacterial prostatitis.the etiology for this condition is not fully understood so the treatment options vary according to age and severity of symptoms. Chronic prostatitis affects younger men aging upto 45 years. These patients can present with perineal and genital pain that can be of continuing nature. The prevalence of this condition in asia is estimated to be 2.7-8.7%. Prostatitis is termed as chronic when it is around 3 months or more.

Pelvic Pain


The chronic form of prostatitis can be due to bacterial invasion or can also present without bacterial invasion. In chronic pelvic pain syndrome the prostate is of non bacterial form. The reasons for the onset of this condition are not known but can be associated with the previous bacterial prostatitis. Other causes that can be included are psychological stress and damage to the urinary tract (can be the result of surgery or any blunt kind of physical injury). This abacterial type of prostatitis is sometimes termed as prostatosis.

Histological presentation of chronic prostatitis

Chronic prostatitis is a much more common condition than the acute form. When correctly diagnosed should be restricted to those cases of inflammatory reaction in the prostate characterized by the aggregation of numerous lymphocytes, plasma cells and macrophages as well as neutrophils within the prostatic substance. It should be pointed out that  in the normal senile chnages,  aggregations of lymphocytes are prone to appear in the fibromuscular stroma of this gland. All too often, such nonspecific aggregates are diagnosed as chronic prostatitis, even though the pathognomonic inflammatory cells, that is the macrophages and neutrophils are not present.

Symptoms of prostatitis

It can start with the local symptoms like low back pain, discomfort and then slowly will associate with frequent micturation especially at bedtimes, dysuria (pain during micturation), difficulty in urination, sense of urgency when you need to urinate, tenderness or pain in perineum, the space between scrotum and anus. Pateint may present with symptoms like sextual dysfunction and some systemic conditions like urine retention. Pain may also be present in penis or testicles, as mentioned earlier the condition is quite common in young males so difficulty in ejaculation is also a very important symptom. Either the patient will have above described symptoms or may just present with recurrent urinary tract infection.

Ayurvedic prospect

In Ashtanga hridaya acharya vagbhata mentioned that due to vitiated vata a glandular, hard, stone like, stable and predominant structure occurs between the passage of malamarga (rectum) and basti (urinary bladder). This results in obstruction of mala, mootra and apana vayu and thus symptoms like pain, dysuria, urgency, increased frequency occurs. (Ashtang hridaya nidaan sthana 9/23-24 ). Above mentioned stanza indicated towards enlargement of the prostate which can be noticed in benign prostate hypertrophy, prostatitis and prostatic cancer.


In local examination per rectal examination is done to check any swelling or inflammation in the prostate. Other test might include the following:

  1. Urine test
  2. Semen test
  3. Blood test
  4. Prostate biopsy
  5. Ultrasound of prostate and urethra
  6. Cystoscopy

Treatment of Chronic pelvic pain syndrome or prostatitis

In modern medicine a limited and varying medication is prescribed due to the non understandable cause of this condition. Prescriptions usually include non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs, alpha blockers, muscle relaxants and psychological therapy for stress and anxiety. If nothing works then finally surgery is suggested. Ayurveda manages a condition according to its root cause. Generally vrishya and rasayan, shoothanashak, herbs that inhibit 5a reductase inhibiting activities (5a reductase are the enzymes that convert testosterone into dihydrotestosterone which is important for the inflammation progression of the prostate) like saw palmetto, prunus africana etc. and diuretic drugs.

Herbal Remedies For Villous Adenoma


Adenomatous polyps are basically defined as the neoplastic benign epithelial polyps of the colon. By convention they are termed as adenomatous or sometimes tubo glandular adenoma. These lesions occur sporadically in the general population and also in certain well defined hereditary syndromes such as heredofamilial multiple one large series the average age of patients having sporadic adenomatous polyps was 60 years with a male preponderance in the ratio 2:1. Their frequency generally increases after 30 years of age. In this article we will typically discuss adenoma which is one of the types of adenomatous polyps including its Ayurvedic management.


Adenomas are divided into three subtypes usually based on their histologic criteria. The types are tubular, tubulovillous and villous. The tubular adenomas are encountered most frequently around 80%-85%, Tubulovillous adenomas are encountered less frequently like 8%-10% and villous adenomas are least encountered that is below 5%. The Average age of patients having such a lesion is in the range of 60-65 years and they are uncommon under the age of 50 years. Villous adenoma, while rarely stalked, are almost always sessile lesions, attached directly to the colonic mucosa by a broad base. Most often they occur singly in the rectosigmoid (80%-90%) but rarely multiple villous tumors are present.
Villous Adenoma

Causes of Villous Adenoma

The causes associated with onset of villous adenoma are not commonly defined but following are the factors which can be considered:

  • Genetic factors
  • Lifestyle and diet
  • Acromegaly
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Ulcerative colitis

Symptoms And Signs of Villous Adenoma

Villous adenomas are symptomatic much more frequently than are adenomatous polyps. The symptoms generally observed are as following:

  • Most commonly they cause rectal bleeding
  • In addition those containing goblet cells may hypersecrete copious amounts of mucoid material that is sufficiently rich in protein to produce hypoproteinemia. Particularly hypoalbuminemia.
  • The mucus secreting contains large amounts of potassium causing hypokalemia.
  • Persistent diarrhoea is rarely present. But if present it can cause significant loss of fluids and electrolytes.
  • Flatulence or bloating might also be present.
  • Constipation may be present.

Appearance of Villous Adenoma

The villous adenoma are velvety, cauliflower, fungating appearance and range from 1cm to 10 cm in diameter. The pale grey lesions are elevated about 1-3 cm above the surrounding mucosa  and often show focal areas of hemorrhage or surface ulceration. Histologically they are composed of finger-like or sometimes branching papillae which are responsible for their soft velvety appearance.

Diagnosing Villous Adenoma

The main investigation for treatment are as follows:

  • Flexible sigmoidoscopy
  • Double contrast barium enema
  • Colonoscopy
  • Polypectomy during an endoscopic procedure

Treatment of Villous Adenoma

  • Polyps at the rectum can be removed during a sigmoidoscopy
  • At colonoscopy the polyp which is usually pedunculated is removed with a snare and recovered for historical examination to assess the completeness of removal and the presence of premalignancy or invasive malignancy.
  • Surgical polypectomy is needed or is necessary if there has been incomplete removal of a malignant polyp. Surgical polypectomy is generally done in sessile polyps, particularly in villous adenoma.
