  1. Getting the right diagnosis is the key to taking care of prostatitis.
  2. Prostatitis does not always involve the prostate. The problem may be in the nearby tissues.
  3. Prostatitis can't always be cured, but its symptoms can be managed.
  4. Treatment should be followed even if you feel better.
  5. Patients with prostatitis aren't at higher risk for getting prostate cancer.
  6. There's no reason to stop normal sex unless it bothers you.
