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.
