Prostate gland is paying an important role in the reproductive system of men. Prostatitis means the inflammation of the tissue in the prostate gland. The symptoms of prostatitis involves pain in the lower back and genital area, difficulty in urinating or passing stool, frequent and urgent urination at night, painful urination and ejaculation and so on. Prostatitis is divided into four types: acute prostatitis, chronic bacterial prostatitis, asymptomatic inflammatory prostatitis, and chronic non-bacterial prostatitis. There are multiple causes of prostatitis. Some causes are related to the prostate but some causes are not related to the prostate. Therefore, to find the causes of prostatitis, doctors need to check the patient’s clinical history and lifestyle. The causes of prostatitis include bacterial, non-bacterial causes and other possible causes.
Bacterial prostatitis causes involve bacterial infections. Bacterial infections are the main cause for acute and chronic bacterial types of prostatitis. If you have acute prostatitis with fever, your prostate is very likely to be infected by bacterial. The most common bacterial is Escherichia coli. Most of acute and chronic bacterial prostatitis are caused by gram-negative bacterial infections such as E. coli and Klebsiella pneumonia. There are some other bacterial causes of prostatitis such as sexually transmitted diseases.
Nonbacterial causes of prostatitis are usually related to chronic non-bacterial prostatitis which is also called chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS). More than 90% of patients suffer from non-bacterial type of prostatitis. According to the survey of patients, about 50% of chronic non-bacterial prostatitis are caused due to problems with pelvic floor muscles or pelvic tension. Other non-bacterial causes of prostatitis include disordered immune response and physical injury problems.
3.Other possible causes
Because patients have different symptoms due to their own condition and health history, it is not easy to identify all the causes of prostatitis. Other problems of prostate may also cause prostatitis. Sometimes, a patient’s lifestyle, dietary habit and allergic history can contribute to causes of prostatitis. There are some possible causes including prostate stones, a uric acid disorder, a rare tumor, prostate cancer, benign prostatic hyperplasia and a food allergy.
To find out the real causes and completely get rid of prostatitis, patients had better ask a professional doctor for help. Besides taking some medicines to treat prostatitis, patients need to change their lifestyle and dietary habit as well to support the treatment.
