Clinically, different types of prostatitis can be induced by different causes. Understanding the causes of prostatitis is the basis for prevention and improvement of treatment efficiency, according to doctor’s explanations.

In the light of medical study, the prostatitis can be mainly divided into four types: typeⅠ prostatitis is acute prostatitis, type Ⅱ is chronic bacterial prostatitis, type Ⅲ is chronic non-bacterial prostatitis, which is also known as chronic pelvic pain syndrome, and type Ⅳ is named as asymptomatic prostatitis.


For acute prostatitis, pathogen infection is the main pathogenic factor, which is usually caused by transurethral retrograde and hematogenous infection. When the patient's resistance is weak, bacteria and other pathogens will invade and multiply in the prostate gland. Common pathogenic bacteria include escherichia coli, staphylococcus aureus, proteus, klebsiella pneumoniae and pseudomonas. This is a common type of prostatitis and can be solved through antibiotics.

Type Ⅱ

Chronic bacterial prostatitis is mainly caused by pathogen infection as well. Most cases are caused by retrograde infections since pathogens are less virulent or patients have better resistance. Reflux of urine and prostate stones are important factors to induce pathogens and infections. The main pathogens are staphylococcus, escherichia coli, enterococci and corynebacterium. For the treatment of chronic bacterial prostatitis, antibiotics may be useless due to the drug resistance. While it is often suggested that patients can take Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill to better solve the problems, which has a great effect on eliminating various inflammations with no side effects.

Type Ⅲ

It is also a very common type of prostatitis and features many pathogenesis. Sometimes it can be caused by more than two factors at the same time. These factors mainly include pathogen infections, pelvic diseases, abnormal urination, autoimmune diseases, side effects of oxidative stress, mental problems and so on. The treatment is also various, so it is suggested to follow the doctors' advice and take suitable treatment. Don't take medicine at will.

Type Ⅳ

Asymptomatic prostatitis is relatively special just like its name. Patients with no obvious symptoms can usually realize this disease when they are doing other related examinations for they body health. Its pathogenesis is not perfect while parts of the pathogenesis have something in common with those of type Ⅲ. Follow the doctors' advice, the disease can be totally solved soon.
