Prostatitis mainly occor in young people, and most of them suffer chronic nonbacterial prostatitis, only a few of them have bacterial prostatitis. The risk of developing prostate cancer mechanism although not clear, many facts show that it closely related to male hormone. Until now, without any evidence that prostatitis can be transformed into the prostate cancer.
