**What Is Bacterial Prostatitis?**


Bacterial ​prostatitis is⁣ an infection of⁢ the prostate ⁣gland caused by bacteria.‍ It is a⁤ type of urinary‌ tract infection (UTI) that primarily affects men ​aged 30-50.


Bacterial prostatitis is usually caused by bacteria that enter⁤ the prostate⁣ through the urethra. Common bacteria responsible include:

*⁣ Escherichia coli (E. coli)

* Klebsiella pneumoniae

* Pseudomonas aeruginosa

* Staphylococcus aureus


The symptoms of‌ bacterial⁤ prostatitis can vary depending on the severity of the infection. Common symptoms include:

* Frequent urination

* ⁤Painful or burning urination

* Difficulty urinating

* Increased urgency⁢ to urinate

*‍ Pelvic pain

* Pain in the testicles or lower​ abdomen

* Fever

* Chills

* Body aches


Bacterial prostatitis is diagnosed based‍ on a combination of:

* Physical examination

* Urine analysis

* Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test

* Transrectal ultrasound

* Prostate biopsy (in‍ severe cases)


Treatment for bacterial prostatitis typically involves antibiotics. The choice of antibiotic depends on the bacteria causing the infection. Treatment ‌usually lasts for 4-6 weeks.

Other recommended⁣ measures include:

* Sitz baths to relieve​ pain

* Alpha-blockers to relax the bladder neck and improve urinary flow

* Pain relievers

* Rest


If left untreated, bacterial prostatitis⁣ can lead to complications such as:

* Recurring infections

* Abscess formation

* Sepsis

* Prostate ⁤enlargement


There⁤ are no specific preventive measures for⁢ bacterial prostatitis. However, maintaining good hygiene, practicing safe sex, and promptly treating urinary tract infections can‍ reduce the risk.
