In brief: Yes

Causes of prostatitis may include infection, injury, or an immune system disorder.
Symptoms include difficulty urinating, pain in the groin, pelvic area, or genitals, and, sometimes, flu-like symptoms.

Prostatitis may get better on its own. If it's caused by a bacterial infection, antibiotics may be prescribed.
