What is Prostatitis?
Inflammation of the prostate gland is called prostatitis. Types of prostatitis include chronic prostatitis (the most common), acute bacterial prostatitis, chronic bacterial prostatitis, and asymptomatic inflammatory prostatitis.
Symptoms can range from severe (lower back pain, painful/difficult urination, fevers, chills) to no symptoms at all (asymptomatic). Pain can travel to other nearby areas, such as the testicles.
