Up to 8% of Australian men report having urogenital pain at any given time, with 15% of men suffering from symptoms of prostatitis at some point during their lives. In addition to causing impaired quality of life, men who have a history of prostatitis have increased rates of benign prostatic hyperplasia, lower urinary tract symptoms and prostate cancer.
