Prostate Cancer UK
An easy-to-read summary of guidance from Prostate Cancer UK on the diagnosis and management of chronic bacterial prostatitis and chronic prostatitis/CPPS. The most common presentation of chronic bacterial prostatitis (CBP) is recurrent urinary tract infection (UTI), whereas pain is a predominant symptom of both CBP and chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS). CBP and CP/CPPS have a significant impact on patients’ quality of life and present diagnostic and therapeutic challenges for physicians.
