Another part of the researchers indicates the relationship of fibrosis of the prostate and chronic prostatitis. In this case, the disease is a consequence of the occurrence of sclerotic changes in the development of chronic prostatitis.
Fibrosis of the prostate are the 4 stages of development. At one stage of changes functional changes, which occur during the process of urination. The next step is the violation of passage of urine in the upper and lower channels of the urinary tract.
