Does prostatitis eventually lead to cancer of the prostrate?

Posted by jherl @jherl, Nov 14, 2018

Just wondering the long term effects of prostatitis.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Men's Health group.

I have had two rounds of antibiotics but no sign mine is getting much better. I am now using quercitin and have order bee pollen. These are old herbal remedies. I have hade it 3 times in the past 15 years,very hard to cure but don't think it is a cancer threat.

Hi @jherl. You bring up an interesting question. I wanted to share this article from Mayo about Prostatitis.

I wanted to highlight the Complications section that states: "There's no direct evidence that prostatitis can lead to prostate cancer."

@jherl do you have this condition?

Have you asked your urologist. They would be the most knowledge source or CDC articles.

If possible , get a second and even a third opinion from other doctors … not every doctor graduated at the top of their class to give you an “expert” opinion !!!
