The prostate is a male sexual gland located at the base of the bladder, at the crossroads of the urinary and genital tract, which is involved in reproduction. Prostatitis is an inflammation of the prostate gland (gland that produces ejaculatory secretions mixed with semen).
During their lifetime, many men will have a form of prostatitis. It is a condition that can affect men of all ages, but especially men between 30 and 50 years. Prostatitis causes inflammation or infection of the prostate. Prostatitis is not a form of prostate cancer and does not increase the risk of developing prostate cancer.
Acute infectious prostatitis is caused by a bacteria. It is rather rare. It is a sudden onset and requires immediate medical attention to the emergency. Symptoms include the need to urinate frequently, lower abdominal pain, a burning sensation when urinating, chills, and fever. There may also be blood in the urine.
