Prostate Infection Symptoms
Prostate glands are located just below the gall bladder in men. An infection of the prostate is called as prostatitis. One of the basic symptoms of prostate infection is difficulty in urination. At the same time, it can also be a symptom of prostate cancer. Prostate infection symptoms are normally found in males above the age of fifty. It does not mean that younger men are not affected by it.
Classification of Prostate Infection Symptoms
Prostatitis is classified into four types.
Acute bacterial prostatitis: This infection is the easiest to diagnose. It is generally observed, that the urinary tract has an infection in this case. The urine is examined for the presence of bacteria and white blood cells in it. In the advanced acute bacterial prostatitis, difficulty in passing urine is the main symptom. Acute bacterial prostatitis is regularly treated with antibiotics.
The common symptoms in this prostate infection are:
• Pain in the genitals
• Lower back pain
• Frequent urination
• Burning sensation during urination and/or painful urination
• Foul smelling urine
• Difficulty in bowel movement
Chronic bacterial prostatitis: Chronic bacterial prostatitis infection is uncommon. This type has recurring infection or inflammation. The recurring infection is an indicator of some flaw in the functioning of the prostate. The chronic bacterial prostatitis infection can spread to the bladder as well. It is important that the condition is diagnosed correctly, before any treatment is given. Prescribing antibiotics is the preferred treatment for this condition as well. Many a times, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are given to supplement the antibiotics.
The symptoms are similar to acute bacterial prostatitis. They are:
• An urgent need to urinate
• Pain during or after urination
• Pain in the lower back
• Testicular pain in the genitals
• Muscle and joint pain
