What are the signs and
symptoms of prostatitis?
The symptoms associated with prostatitis can vary depending on the underlying
cause of prostatitis. The symptoms may appear slowly or come on quickly, and
they may improve rapidly (depending on the cause and treatment available) or
they may last for several months and they can keep recurring (chronic
prostatitis). The rapidity and severity of onset is usually most pronounced with
acute bacterial prostatitis. The following are signs and symptoms that may be
present with prostatitis:
Painful, difficult and/or frequent urinating
Blood in the urine
Groin pain, rectal pain, abdominal pain and/or
low back pain
