Dear,

Thanks for all these additional details.

I am sorry to hear about your problems.

Well, Prostatitis is the inflammation (swelling) of the prostate gland.

There are two main types of prostatitis:

1. Chronic prostatitis – Here the symptoms come and go over a period of several months; it's the most common type; it's not usually caused by an infection

2. Acute prostatitis- Here symptoms are severe and develop suddenly.

Symptoms with prostatitis are-

- pain in and around your penis, testicles, anus, lower abdomen

- frequent or urgent need to urinate.

- enlarged or painful prostate on rectal examination.

This is diagnosed by-

-Digital Rectal Examination.

-Urine examination- for checking infection.

The line of treatment is-

-Painkillers and a two to four week course of antibiotics such as ciprofloxacin

- Alpha-blocker, such as tamsulosin, this would relax the muscles in the prostate gland and the base of the bladder.

Such symptoms, usually clears with a course of antibiotics. It's important to take the full course to ensure that the infection clears completely.

Please see your primary doctor and get it clinically evaluated.

Hope this helped
