The signs and symptoms of prostatitis vary, depending on the cause of the inflammation. Symptoms of prostatitis are nonspecific and have been known to mimic other urologic and nonurologic diseases. One might experience no symptoms or symptoms so sudden and severe that they cause one to seek immediate emergency medical care. Prostatitis symptoms include: fever, chills, urinary frequency, frequent urination at night, difficulty urinating, burning or painful urination, perineal (inflammation in the area between the scrotum and the anus) and low-back pain, joint or muscle pain, tender or swollen prostate, blood in the urine, and painful ejaculation.
Symptoms of prostatitis, in fact, resemble those of other infections or prostate diseases. Therefore, even if Prostatitis Symptoms disappear, one should have their prostate checked immediately. There are condition connections between the urethra, the bladder, and the prostate that affect one or the other organ and have similar or overlapping symptoms. Moreover, these conditions may occur concurrently in the same patient complicating diagnosis and treatment.
Acute bacterial prostatitis is the least common of the four types. It is also the easiest to diagnose and treat effectively. The man with this disease often experiences chills, fever, pain in the lower back and genital area, body aches, burning or painful urination, and the frequent and urgent need to urinate, often at night. The urinary tract is infected, as is evidenced by white blood cells and bacteria in the urine. The treatment of acute bacterial prostatitis is with an antibiotic appropriate for the particular bacteria. Sometimes nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen and naproxen, are given to relieve pain.
