The causes of prostatitis are not clear. However, the disease may exhibit a number of symptoms (often sudden and severe) and it is crucial to contact one’s health care provider or doctor once these symptoms are felt to get a proper diagnosis and to begin treatment.
Pain in the groin and lower back area. This is the most common symptom of the disease. Recurrent pelvic, rectal or testicle pain without a bladder infection may be signs of chronic prostatitis without infection.
Urinary symptoms such as difficulty, painful, or urgent urination. Since the urethra carries the urine out of the body and runs through the center of the prostate gland, an inflammation may constrict it and cause problems. This infection could also extend to the bladder, causing small amounts of blood to appear in the urine, too. The symptoms are also similar to that of a urinary tract infection and prompt medical attention is needed.
Pain during or after ejaculation is a symptom for CPPS or chronic pelvic pain syndrome. Other related symptoms are premature ejaculation, retarded or delayed ejaculation, and unsatisfactory ejaculation. In rare cases, blood may appear in the semen.
A decreased libido or sexual appetite is another symptom, brought about by experiencing aggravated pain during arousal caused by the infection.
Fever, chills, and other flu-like symptoms such as body pains, shakes, and malaise are especially common in cases of acute bacterial prostatitis.
Penile discharge, usually a thick, discolored fluid around the head of the penis. In cases of acute bacterial prostatitis, penile discharge happens when an STD is present.
Prostatitis is curable, usually with antibiotics, appropriate therapy, or through a holistic approach.
