Prostate Home > Prostititis

Were you looking for information about Prostatitis? Prostititis is a common misspelling of prostatitis.
If you are a man and you have burning or painful urination, you may have prostatitis. This condition is a type of infection or inflammation of the prostate gland and affects many young to middle-aged men. Although some types of prostatitis can be treated with antibiotics, it is important to see your healthcare provider, as there are other forms that do not respond to antibiotics. A digital rectal test and a urine test can determine which of the four types of prostatitis you have.
