Listen to Dr Sudharshan SB, Consultant, Department of Urology at MGM Healthcare talk about prostatitis. The doctor shares that Prostatitis is swelling and inflammation of the prostate gland. It often causes painful or difficult urination. Other symptoms include pain in the groin, pelvic area or genitals and sometimes flu-like symptoms.
Prostatitis is the most common urinary tract problem for men younger than age 50. The complications of prostatitis may include bacterial infection in the bloodstream, prostatic abscess, sexual dysfunction and inflammation of reproductive organs near the prostate.
Urinary symptoms unrelated to prostatitis may occur as a result of bladder problems, UTIs, or benign prostatic hyperplasia. Prostatitis symptoms can also indicate more serious conditions, such as prostate cancer. Men who are experiencing symptoms of prostatitis should see a urologist as soon as possible.
