Prostatitis is defined as the inflammation of the prostate gland. The chestnut-sized prostate lies below the bladder and produces a fluid secretion which is released via the urethra during ejaculation, where it mixes with the sperm to form the actual sperm. Prostatitis can lead to different symptoms, typically pain in the perineal area and problems urinating.
Pain in the pelvic area for more than three months in the last six months is called a chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CCPS), the most common form of prostatitis, often the cause is unknown.
Chinese medicine believes that there are three pathological changes in chronic prostatitis and enlarged prostate.
