Prostatitis may occur with an infection in or around the testicles (epididymitis or orchitis), especially if it was caused by an STD. In this case, there will also be symptoms of the other condition.
Symptoms of acute prostatitis are more likely to start quickly and cause greater discomfort. They may include the following:
Abdominal pain (usually right above the pubic bone)
- Burning with urination (dysuria)
- Fever, chills, flush
- Inability to completely empty the bladder (urinary retention)
