One of the first and most basic tests for prostatitis is to check for high number of white blood cells (inflammatory markers) in the ejaculate.

Hi Nik,
High wbc counts in the ejaculate may indicate seminal vesiculitis rather than prostatitis

In a young healthy man, calcifications of the prostate are rare, so a transrectal ultrasound can also be useful to show calcifications which are indicative of ongoing inflammation or infection.

Hello I'm 5 weeks into my issue. Too many drugs, test etc. I'v had urine tests which come back normal. Have not had ejaculate tested. What do they look for?
Comment by Arnon Krongrad, MD on December 1, 2010 at 1:07pm
Ejaculates are generally tested for bacteria. These can be pretty nonspecific and even contaminants in that both the prostate and urethra often have bacteria in them, including in asymptomatic patients. Keep us posted.

Thanks Dr Krongrad for your reply. I'm on my third course of anti-biotic. 14 days of Cipro. Then Kelfax, and now another 30 day order of Cipro. I’m also on Flomax I’ve been on it for 3 weeks I don’t see the results I should be seeing when on Flowmax. I’ve had 3 DRE, One from my family, one from an emergency room physicians and another from my Urologist. My Urologist also performed a cryoscopy which he said was perfect. The Prostate wasn’t enlarged or “boggy” as they called it and didn’t hurt when examined. I don’t see my Urologist again until Jan 24/2011. Could you please advise me with other tests or procedures and should be in dialogue with him about? Any help at all would be great.

Many Thanks

Are there cases when the prostate is biopsied, after prostatectomy, and no pathology is discovered?
