Prostatitis is inflammation or congestion of the prostate gland in men. Depending on the complexity of the case, the patient may even have acute prostatitis, which is less common, but gives a clinical picture in the form of sharp pains in the perineum, frequent painful and difficult urination, discharge from the urethra, false urge to go to the toilet for the most part, fever, etc. And in some cases, when the patient does not go to the doctor in time, the deterioration of health and the intensification of the disease can lead to acute prostatitis.
If a person is sick for more than 2-3 months, then prostatitis is considered chronic. With an exacerbation of chronic prostatitis, there are the same symptoms as with acute, but they are less pronounced.
What are the features of prostatitis?
The disease can develop gradually, imperceptibly to the patient himself! A patient for several years may not know that he has chronic prostatitis and is accidentally detected during the initial treatment. The reasons for the patient’s visit to the doctor are complications in the form of impaired potency, vegetative disorders, male infertility, chronic pelvic pain syndrome, etc. That’s why we recommend men to be examined at least once a year by an andrologist urologist.
Why is prostatitis dangerous and why is it important to treat it?
