Prostatitis

Prostatitis literally means inflammation of the prostate. However this can be misleading as not all men with prostatitis actually have an inflamed prostate. Prostatitis is a poorly understood condition but is one of the most common complaints involving the urinary system in men aged 18 – 50.
Chronic prostatitis can affect quality of life and may cause anxiety and depression. Seeking medical attention and treatment of symptoms can help relieve this burden.

  • Previous history of prostatitis
