The common symptoms of acute prostatitis

Acute prostatitis is a serious bacterial infection of the prostate gland. Acute prostatitis is a type of infective prostatitis. It is caused by a bacterial infection of the prostate gland. Chronic prostatitis is sometimes called chronic pelvic pain syndrome.

Acute bacterial prostatitis is not that common. Only about 2 in 10,000 men will develop acute prostatitis at some point in their lives. Acute prostatitis is not considered a sexually transmitted infection, so a sexual partner is not at risk.
What are the symptoms of acute prostatitis?
In acute prostatitis, symptoms develop quickly - typically over a few days or so. It usually occurs at the same time as a urine infection. Therefore, you may also have a bladder infection (cystitis). Bacteria (germs) are found in your urine if a urine sample is taken. Symptoms include:
•Pain from your prostate, which may be severe. You feel this mainly at the base of your penis, around your anus, just above your pubic bone and/or in your lower back. Pain may spread to your penis and testes. Passing stools (faeces) can be painful.
•Symptoms of a urine infection. For example: pain when you pass urine, passing urine frequently, an urgent desire to pass urine, and sometimes blood in your urine. Some people can develop problems so that they are unable to pass urine and the urine builds up in the bladder (this is called urinary retention).
•Fever (high temperature). General aches and pains. You generally feel ill.
•A slight discharge (thick fluid) may come out of your penis from your urethra.
•Your prostate feels tender if a doctor examines it with a gloved finger in your rectum.
Acute prostatitis is relatively easy to diagnose due to its symptoms that suggest infection. The organism may be found in blood or urine, and sometimes in both. So you can judge by yourself whether you are suffering acute prostatitis or not.
If you are not sure, you can go to see your family doctor to have a correct test. You can get some suggestions about how to cure and prevent this disease.
