Q: 

What Is nonbacterial prostatitis?

A: nonbacterial prostatitis is a medical disorder that causes inflammation of the prostate gland. The condition is most common in men between the ages of 15 and 40, though doctors are unsure of its exact causes. A man with nonbacterial prostatitis may experience pain when urinating or ejaculating, frequent urges to urinate, and chronic soreness in the groin area. Left untreated, symptoms tend to persist or worsen over time. Depending on the severity of a person''s condition, treatment usually involves home remedies or prescription medications to relieve discomfort. Many instances of prostatitis are related to bacterial infections, which are relatively easy to identify...

Q: 

Chronic nonbacterial prostatitis

A: I do not agree with the use of steroids.  Too many potential problems and complications to be worth the benefit.  Otherwise, I pretty much agree with the third urologist.  I see no need for a biopsy at your age without more signs or symptoms of a possible problem. Other treatments for prostatitis include sitting in a very hot tub of water for 5-10 minutes (often helps, no complications and costs very little).  The water needs to be quite hot.  For severe cases, I recommend twice or three times a day.  Next, use of a flow enhancer like Flomax or Uroxatral.  Avoid caffeine and alcohol.  Don"t smoke (it constricts the blood vessels and causes prostatic congestion).   There is an excellent herbal remedy that has a...
Q: 

Prostrate/prostatitis

A: Dennis, your symptoms sound typical of prostatitis.  You apparently responded to the Cipro but although the antibiotics calmed you prostate down, it did not eliminate the infection.  This is why I generally recommend at least a 4 week course of antibiotics initially.  In men with recurrences, I retreat for 6 weeks.  In some patients, the infections recur frequently.  In these individuals,once I get them asymptomatic, I keep them on a low daily dose of antibiotics with good results.   I have written a "macro" on prostatitis that I believe answers all of your questions about alcohol, diet, sexual frequency, etc.  Following the "dos & dont"s"  will absolutely decrease you...
Q: 

Overactive bladder or prostatitis?

A: Michael, you do indeed have an "overactive bladder" but I believe it is due to prostatitis and not the overactive bladder syndrome.  The latter does cause frequency of urination but rarely any of the other symptoms you describe.  I don"t know if you have previously read my "macro" on prostatitis so I will attach it to this note.  It contains most of the information you need to understand the condition and the various types of prostatitis.  It is as follows: The most common cause of these complaints is an inflammation of the prostate gland, so called prostatitis.  Symptoms that might occur with prostatitis include frequency of urination,...
Q: 

A possible bacterial prostatitis from an STD infection?

A: Matt, you are correct in that the most common cause of your complaints is an inflammation of the prostate gland, so called prostatitis.  Symptoms that might occur with prostatitis include frequency of urination, slowing of the urinary stream, burning with voiding or ejaculation, burning in the penile tip unrelated to voiding, urethral discharge, sexual dysfunction (such as difficulty with erection), aching in the penis, testicles, and discomfort in the lower abdomen, low back, groin, rectum or perineum (the area between the scrotum and rectum ? between the ?wind and the rain?) and constipation. The passage of blood at the initiation or termination of urination or in the semen can also be noted.  semen.   During sexual...
Q: 

Prostate pain leading to spermatic pain

A: Dave, by far the most common cause of genital and scrotal pain in the presence of anatomically normal testicles (& apparently your urologist has determined this) is indeed an inflammation of the prostate gland, so called prostatitis.  However, there are many varieties of prostatitis.  Symptoms that might occur with prostatitis include frequency of urination, slowing of the urinary stream, burning with voiding or ejaculation, burning in the penile tip unrelated to voiding, urethral discharge, sexual dysfunction (such as difficulty with erection), aching in the penis, testicles, and discomfort in the lower abdomen, low back, groin, rectum or perineum (the area between the scrotum and rectum ? between the...
Q: 

How do I know if I have prostatitis, could it be something else?

A: There are differant type of prostatitis. Acute prostatitis is first treated with antibiotics. Oral antibiotics should be given for 1–3 months; longer, if necessary. If a fungus or some other organism is causing infection, special drugs are available. If chronic prostatitis continues despite all medical efforts and is seriously affecting the patient''s life, the prostate may be removed surgically. nonbacterial prostatitis requires other measures to relieve urinary symptoms. These measures include drugs that fight inflammation (steroids or nonsteroids) and a type of drug called an alpha-blocker that reduces muscle tension. There is another condition that can...
Q: 

I am 44 years old. I had a prostate infection before one month. I took antibiotic and was good by the time. Now I feel some burning sensation in urinary tract. Please guide me. Thanks.

A: The prostate gland is a prominent part of the human reproductive system and is concerned with the creation and secretion of fluids that help transport sperm. The gland is located just below the bladder and surrounds the urethra – which is the tube that helps drain the bladder. A prostate infection will usually be characterized by the enlargement of the gland and is quite commonly experienced in men over the age of 50. While there is no crystal clear explanation for the development of prostate infections, some experts believe that the male sex hormones play a prominent role. Studies show that almost 50% of all men are likely to develop prostatitis at some point of time in their lives. This condition is more common than other medical conditions such as...
