Prostatitis

Prostatitis

This is an inflammation of the prostate or a pain in the prostate.

Symptoms
There are a variety of symptoms and problems associated with prostatitis and most men will not have all of the symptoms at one time. They include:

  • Urinary problems like increased frequency, urgency and so on
  • Pain/ache/discomfort
  • Sexual problems which includes pain during the act and premature ejaculation
  • Fertility problems because sperm count and mobility can be seriously reduced by prostatitis. 
  • Psychological problems like depression and stress
  • Fever which is a medical emergency
     

The following are necessary to make a diagnosis:

  • A medical history
  • Digital rectal examination (DRE).  This is when a gloved finger is inserted into the rectum to feel the prostate. In prostatitis, the prostate may be enlarged or tender (painful).
  • Urine for microscopy, culture and sensitivity: Two urine samples are sometimes collected.  One before a prostate massage and the other after a prostate massage.  A prostate massage is when the doctor strokes the prostate during a DRE.  The urine sample collected is then examined under a microscope for inflammatory cells and bacteria.
     

Note:
Because the symptoms of prostatitis are common to other conditions, we may ask you to do other blood tests and scans to rule out other conditions like bladder stones, kidney stones and urinary tract infections.

Our findings from your examination and tests performed will be discussed with you and further recommendations made.
