Prostatitis is generally considered to be an infection of bacterial origin. The initial symptoms are often those similar to a urinary tract or bladder infection (the urge to pee more often, slight discomfort upon urination, etc.). It is important that upon early symptom recognition, that a consultation be made with your physician to determine the origin of the symptoms and initiate treatment when appropriate. Early treatment with medications tends to ensure an uncomplicated and timely recovery. Delays in treatment may bring about complications.
The clinical scenario is quite similar for the various types of prostatitis (acute, chronic and inflammatory). The wide range of symptoms include those mentioned above as well as occasional symptoms of urinary obstruction (difficulty peeing), perineal pain or discomfort (the region found between the scrotum and the anus) and ejaculatory difficulties.
