Prostate infections are not uncommon in men. They happen when bacteria gets into the prostate gland and causes inflammation. Symptoms include painful urination, chills, and muscle aches.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is the condition commonly known as an enlarged prostate. BPH is extremely common; it’s the main reason many older men have trouble urinating. Usually, BPH is more of a nuisance than a major medical problem, though serious complications can occasionally occur.
Chronic prostatitis is an inflammation of the prostate gland located between the bladder and penis. It causes urinary pain symptoms and painful ejaculation.
