What is Prostatitis?

Prostatitis can affect men of all ages, but is more common in those who are 50 years of age or younger. This is an inflammation of the prostate gland which often causes painful and difficult urination. This can be caused by a number of different things and the symptoms vary from person to person.

Acute bacterial Prostatitis is caused by common strains of bacteria which may start when the bacteria is carried in the urine and leaks into one's prostate. Antibiotics are usually used to treat it. In case the bacteria aren't eliminated with antibiotics, Prostatitis may recur or be difficult to treat. This is called chronic bacterial Prostatitis.
