Many men will visit a Urologist on a regular basis just to check whether they have any health complication. Not all these trips will bring good news since you may end up detecting a health complication. These complications tend to make life very difficult since men can no longer perform their day-to-day activities. One of these health complications is Prostatitis, a condition that mostly affects men under the age of 50.

Many people do not know anything about Prostatitis since it is a rare men’s health complication. Those who have an insight about this condition will tell you that it is an inflammation of the prostate or areas surrounding the prostate. There are four different types of Prostatitis, which may affect a man. They include:

  • Acute Bacterial Prostatitis

An Acute Bacterial Prostatitis comes about as a result of having infection causing bacteria in your prostate. This type of prostatitis will start immediately the bacteria gets to a man’s prostate. A man with Acute Bacterial Prostatitis may show symptoms like fever, chills and body aches.

  • Chronic Bacterial Prostatitis

Chronic Bacterial Prostatitis occurs when a patient has recurrent bacterial infections in the Prostate gland.  This type of Prostatitis can sometimes prove difficult to handle especially if it is very severe. Patients with Chronic Bacterial Prostatitis will experience symptoms such as pain in the lower back, chills and fever.

  • Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome 

Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome is the most common type of Prostatitis that men are currently experiencing. This type of Prostatitis will cause the inflammation of the prostate especially when there is presence of infection fighting cells in urine or semen. Most men who have Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome will display symptoms like pain in the lower back and painful urination.

  • Asymptomatic Inflammatory Prostatitis

A urologist will mostly detect Asymptomatic Inflammatory Prostatitis when checking for other conditions like Prostate Cancer and infertility. Most men with this type of Prostatitis usually have infection-fighting cells in semen or prostatic fluid. However, they will not feel any pain, as is the case with other types of Prostatitis.

The good news is that you can easily treat Prostatitis especially if it is still in its early stages. The treatment method that a doctor will suggest depends on the type of Prostatitis present in a patient’s body. A doctor may decide to administer antibiotics that are meant to deal with the infection bacteria. The doctor may also recommend taking Anti-inflammatory medications, which will help in relieving the pain that comes with having Prostatitis.

A patient suffering from Prostatitis will resume their normal activities after getting the correct treatment. Unfortunately, some patients fail to treat this medical condition, as they tend to go against the doctor’s prescription. Furthermore, they may end up getting additional health complications as a result of taking an under dose or overdose of the medications. It is therefore advisable that you follow your doctor’s prescription to the letter if you are to forget the symptoms that come with Prostatitis.
