Presumptive diagnosi: Prostatitis is a common diagnosis in many young mails. Prostate Congestion is a vaguely defined term used to describe a suspect diagnosis of Prostatitis( when the doctor is not sure about it. As it is difficult to pin down the diagnosis, doctors often treat it as an infection but it is often hard to prove infection of the prostate. You Need to find a good medical doctor for long term follow up.
