What is Chronic Prostatitis?
Chronic prostatitis is caused by inflammation of the prostate (a gland in a male’s body that releases fluids which aid in achieving sexual reproduction), which leads to long-lasting, lost-term pain in the pelvic region (e.g. around the penis, anus, lower abdomen, and lower back). There are two types, including:
chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (also known as chronic nonbacterial prostatitis): non-infective; more common (9/10 males with chronic prostatitis)
chronic bacterial prostatitis: infective; less common (1/10 males with chronic prostatitis)
