I have balanitis(unknown cause) possible epididymitis and prostatitis. Can the cause of all these things be related to each other?

In brief: Yes and no

While prostatitis and epididymitis often have a common bacterial origin due to the anatomic linkage of the two structures from the vas deferens, balanitis is usually caused by a fungal organism.
