Prostatitis

Prostatitis is pain and swelling of the prostate gland. It usually develops for unknown reasons.

Prostatitis can result from a bacterial infection that spreads to the prostate from the urinary tract or from bacteria in the blood stream. Bacterial infections may develop slowly and tend to recur (chronic bacterial prostatitis) or develop rapidly (acute). Rarely fungal, viral or protozoal infections can cause prostatitis.
