Answer

Treatment of prostatitis should be tailored to symptoms and culture findings and should be supportive. Suprapubic catheterization may be warranted in severe urinary obstruction and should be placed in consultation with a urologist. For further information, the European Association of Urology has treatment guidelines available on chronic pelvic pain and on prostatitis and chronic pelvic pain syndrome. [17, 21]
