What are the risk factors?

  • Young or middle-aged adulthood
  • Previous prostatitis
  • Infection of the urinary or reproductive system
  • HIV infection or AIDS
  • Use of a tube inserted into the urethra to drain the bladder (urinary catheter)
  • Diagnostic sampling of prostate tissue (biopsy)

Additional risk factors for chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome may include:

  • Psychological stress
  • Nerve damage in the pelvic region due to surgery or trauma

What are the complications?

  • Bacterial infection of the blood (bacteremia)
  • Inflammation of the coiled tube attached to the back of the testicle (epididymitis)
  • Pus-filled cavity in the prostate (prostatic abscess)
  • Infection that spreads to the upper pelvic bone or lower spine

Complications of chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome may include:

  • Anxiety or depression
  • Sexual dysfunction, such as the inability to get and maintain an erection (erectile dysfunction)
  • Changes in sperm and semen that may cause infertility

There’s no direct evidence that prostatitis can lead to prostate cancer. Researchers are investigating whether chronic inflammation of the prostate is a risk factor for cancer.
