Your Aurora urologist will talk with you about your symptoms and perform a physical exam. He or she may also perform additional tests. Afterward, your doctor will work with you on a treatment tailored to your needs and the type of prostatitis you have.
Your options might include antibiotics or other medications, therapy or surgery. Your doctor might also recommend home treatments, such as sitz baths, heat therapy and pillows or inflatable cushions. Biofeedback and relaxation exercises can sometimes help you stop the pain and other symptoms, too.
