Chronic prostatitis/pelvic pain syndrome, inflammatory, is an
inflammation of the prostate that causes pain in the belly, testicles, or tip
of the penis. It may also cause urination problems and painful ejaculation. It is the most

found in the urine. Fever, chills, or other signs of an infection are
not present.

This condition used to be
