Is it possible to feel pain in the lymph glands without inflammation?

Is it possible to feel pain in the lymph glands without inflammation?

Hi Doctor, I have prostatitis and taking medicine from last 3 months (nafodil, terol, oflex & etc). There is no improvement in my condition. Doctor said I have inflammation and swelling in my prostate gland and not sure why there is no improvement with me

Non-infectious?: Some prostatitis is bacterial, but if so ofloxacin (Oflex) should have helped, and bacterial is uncommon at your age. Still, ask your doctor about "3 glass" urine culture to check for particular bacteria. For most prostatitis, due to non-infectious inflammation, antibiotics don't help. The other drugs were intended only to help relieve symptoms. Or maybe chronic pelvic pain syndrome (google it). ...Read more
