In brief: Continued pain

Prostatitis can either be acute (fast onset) or chronic (lasting for weeks/months/years).
It is a painful condition that can lead to chronic pelvic pain. It is best to treat acute prostatitis with at least a 3-4 week course of appropriate antibiotics to avoid developing chronic pain.
