Prostatitis is the affliction of the prostate about which the least is known. So, not surprisingly, urologists and doctors currently have little idea how to prevent the problem.

  1. The best advice at present is to avoid the risk factors for prostatitis where possible (for example, if a patient has symptoms of a urinary tract infection, such as a burning sensation when urinating, or cloudy smelly urine, he should visit a doctor and complete any prescribed courses of antibiotics). Also, he should maintain a healthy lifestyle, eat a diet low in saturated fats and take plenty of exercise and practice safe sex.
