Prostatitis Symptom Test

Do I have Prostatitis?

Prostatitis is the inflammation of the prostate either as a result of bacterial infection or decreased immune or muscle related function. Prostatitis is an umbrella term that describes a group of disorders that have related symptoms. As many as 35 percent of men older than 50 have chronic prostatitis and about 50 percent of males will be diagnosed with prostatitis at some point during their lives.

Three of the four different types of prostatitis—acute bacterial prostatitis, chronic bacterial prostatitis, and chronic nonbacterial prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome – have similar symptoms, yet there are a few notable differences among them. Generally, symptoms include a strong urge to urinate, difficulty starting the urinary stream, a weak urinary stream, dribbling, frequent nighttime urination, and pain and/or burning when urinating.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) developed the following questionnaire to help evaluate men suffering from chronic prostatitis. The self-administered test measures the severity of symptoms and the impact of these symptoms on daily life.

Area between rectum & testicles (perineum)

Testicles

Tip of the penis (not related to urination)

Below the waist, in your pubic or bladder area

Pain or burning during urination?

Pain or discomfort during or after ejaculation?

How often have you had pain or discomfort in any of the above areas over the last week?
Choose the number that best describes your AVERAGE pain or discomfort.
