The Common Symptoms of Prostatitis

Prostatitis is the microscopic inflammation of the prostate gland, a walnut-sized gland found between the bladder and the penis of the human body. The prostate gland produces the fluid mixed with sperm to create semen that nourishes and transports the sperm in the body; this fluid helps protect the sperm when traveling toward the female’s egg. Prostatitis may occur between any age range but usually occur between the age range of 30 and 50. This condition can be excruciating and unbearable, but it gets better with time.

Prostatitis can be categorized into four types; acute bacterial prostatitis, chronic bacterial prostatitis, chronic pelvic pain syndrome, and asymptomatic prostatitis. Scientific studies have made us realize that men with asymptomatic inflammatory prostatitis do not at any point develop any symptoms and may only be diagnosed by a health care professional when testing for reproductive tract disorders. Prostatitis can be caused as a result of bacterial infection, and when this is noticed, the inflammation of the prostate gland can be treated accordingly with antibiotics. And there are also situations in which the primary cause is unknown. In this case, the best thing to do is to treat the symptoms.

Some of the symptoms of prostatitis include:

Painful or Burning Sensation When Urinating

Painful urination, also referred to as dysuria [1], is a common sign and symptom of prostatitis, is the term used to describe a situation in which a person experiences discomfort during urination. This pain may come from the perineum (the space between the anus and scrotum in males or the frenulum labiorum pudendI [2] in females), urethra. This pain or discomfort can be felt where urine passes out of the human body and can also be felt inside the human body.
