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?

Thanks for the info
Yes this is my first bought. I have had an enlarged prostrate for the last 10 years but this is new to me.
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 !!!
