I'm pretty sure most of those men don't experience any symptoms. I never heard of this disease until I started to feel the pain and have urinary problems. My GP didn't even know how to treat it properly the first time.
I wonder if similar rates apply to American males?
That's the issue. "Prostatitis" reffers to many conditions, including acute bacterial, chronic bacterial, chronic non-bacterial, and histological not clinical. This is one reason it helps to use the CPSI: at least symptoms can be compared.
I am happy to join this greate sosial network. I am 42 years old and my nightmear has last now about 3 months. I have eaten two antibiotic cources with pankillers and alfa blockers. No success so far...
I found a study and it shows that in Finnish male population has about 14% chronic non-bacterial prostitits. The study also tried to found signs af bacteria or viruses in removed (due to prostate cancer) prostates. In this study no trace of bacteria or viruses found.
