Marc Garnick, Oncology, answeredProstatitis gets little press, but it's an all-too-common genitourinary condition in men. It accounts for about 1.8 million visits to the doctor's office in the United States each year. Depending on how you define the term, 9% to 16% of men experience prostatitis at some point in their lives. It's also an "equal opportunity" disorder. Unlike benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and prostate cancer, which predominantly affect older men, prostatitis affects men of all ages.
