Hi,

Ongoing hemorrhoids or aggravation of the same can result in reactivation or exacerbation prostatitis. This is due to the fact that any inflammation of the pelvic tissues will result in symptoms in the associated and surrounding structures.

Any infection entering the bloodstream can spread to the rest of the body and at least cause infection in some surrounding areas, if immunity is low and the infective load high.

Bleeding hemorrhoids indicate a break in the mucosal and vascular continuity and entry of infective bacteria from the fecal matter into the blood. Some of the organisms may be neutralized by the body's immune system.

To increase your immunity and mucosal integrity ensure that adequate intake of vitamins A, E, B complex, and C is maintained. Even though vitamin C is known to be an irritant to the prostate, megadoses of vitamin C has been reported to reduce and relieve BPH and prostate cancer symptoms.

Do keep us posted.

regards
