The differences of symptoms between acute prostatitis and chronic prostatitis

The prostate gland is located beneath a man’s bladder and produces some of the fluid that makes up a man’s semen. Acute bacterial prostatitis is a serious inflammation of the prostate gland. Other types of prostatitis include nonbacterial prostatitis, asymptomatic prostatitis and chronic bacterial prostatitis. 

Acute bacterial prostatitis is a rare type of prostatitis and is caused by a potentially life-threatening bacterial infection of the prostate gland. Acute bacterial prostatitis is generally the result of an infection that has spread to the prostate from another part of the body, often a urinary tract infection, such as a bladder infection. 
Typical symptoms of acute bacterial prostatitis include severe pain in and around the base of the penis. There may be a feeling of fullness in the rectum and a frequent urge to defecate. There is also pain behind the scrotum. Men may also experience fever, hematuria, urgency and frequency. It may also be difficult to pass more than a small amount of urine. 
If you are suffering from irritation and swelling in prostate gland for a prolonged duration, you could be suffering from chronic bacterial prostatitis. Even though the symptoms of chronic bacterial prostatitis are similar to acute prostatitis, the effect of this problem is not severe. The symptoms of the problem are gradual and some patients may experience no symptoms or mild symptoms between episodes.
Some of the symptoms of chronic bacterial prostatitis include fever, blood in urine, frequent urination, delay in urination, frequent urination and excessive pain or burning sensation when urinating. Some subtle symptoms of the problem include pain in the lower back region, pin in bowel movement, testicular pain and pain when ejaculating. Some of the common causes of chronic infection in the prostate gland include urinary tract infection, acute prostatitis, epididymitis and urethritis. 
This risk of chorionic infection in prostate glands increases for people who are over 30 years of age and practice anal sex without using condoms. Also, injury to the perineum and excessive intake of alcohol can also increase the risk of chronic bacterial prostatitis.
Acute bacterial prostatitis is a medical emergency that can lead to life-threatening complications. For additional symptoms and more details about complications, refer to symptoms of acute bacterial prostatitis. Risk factors for acute bacterial prostatitis include having a bladder infection, cystitis, HIV/AIDS, dehydration, trauma to the prostate, and the use of a urinary catheter.
