Prostatitis is a common infection or an inflammation of the prostate. It can affect men of all ages and doesn’t increase the risk for prostate cancer. Symptoms can include an urge to urinate, pain during urination, chills and fever, and pelvic pain. Treatment may include anti-inflammatory medicines, antibiotics, alpha-blocker drugs, and warm sitz baths.
Most men with prostatitis have chronic prostatitis/pelvic pain syndrome, inflammatory or noninflammatory. The cause of this type of prostatitis is not known. Few men with prostatitis have prostatitis associated with a bacterial infection.
For treating acute prostatitis, medical doctors prescribes antibiotics and it treats 50~60% of the cases. But in the state of chronic prostatitis, there are not many choices because inside of prostate cannot be supplied with plenty of blood which is carrying antibiotics to target area.
Reports saying that patients with prostatitis having high chance of mental and physical fatigue and depression due to continuing unsuccessful treatment.
