Inflammation of the prostate gland is common. Symptoms include: 

  • difficulty passing or controlling urine, 
  • fever, 
  • pelvic, penis tip or testicular discomfort
  • erection or ejaculation problems

Some men have no symptoms at all.

Prostatitis can be caused by a urine infection or recent surgery. However often there is no identifiable cause. An ultrasound scan and/or cystoscopy (camera inspection of the bladder) may be helpful in finding a cause.

If a bacterial infection is isolated, antibiotics are the mainstay of treatment. Some men require prolonged courses of antibiotics to settle their symptoms, whilst others may benefit from anti-inflammatory tablets, prostate tablets or pelvic floor exercises
