How To Treat Prostatitis

ProstatitisThe prostate gland is a small walnut sized gland found in men and is located directly below the bladder. This gland produces sperm which is a fluid that nourishes and transports sperm. The gland generally becomes inflamed due to bacterial infection and sometimes the cause of inflammation is never identified. This is known as prostatitis. The onset is sudden or gradual and it can get better on its own or keep recurring frequently.

The common symptoms are pain and burning during urination, frequent urge to urinate, dribbling urination, pain in the abdomen, groin and lower back, pain in the penis and testicles and painful orgasms. Acute prostatitis can cause fever, chills, headaches, body aches and muscle aches, nausea, vomiting and general malaise. Chronic prostatitis lasts for more than three months due to recurring infections and is often accompanied by urinary tract infections. The symptoms are nil or extremely mild between bouts of infection and become severe as soon the infection flares up.
