A prostate infection diagnosis is based on your medical history, a physical exam, and medical tests. Your doctor can also rule out other serious conditions such as prostate cancer during the exam. During a physical exam, your doctor will conduct a digital rectal exam to test your prostate and will look for:
enlarged or tender lymph nodes in the groin
swollen or tender scrotum
Your doctor may also ask about your symptoms, recent UTIs, and medications or supplements you’re taking. Other medical tests that can help your diagnosis and treatment plan include:
urinalysis or semen analysis, to look for infections
a prostate biopsy or a blood test for prostate-specific antigen (PSA)
urodynamic tests, to see how your bladder and urethra store urine
cystoscopy, to look inside the urethra and bladder for blockage
Your doctor may also order an ultrasound to get a closer look. The cause will help determine the correct course of treatment.
Diagnosing prostatitis involves ruling out other conditions as the cause of your symptoms and determining what kind of prostatitis you have. Your doctor will ask about your medical history and your symptoms. He or she will also do a physical exam, which will likely include a digital rectal examination.
Initial diagnostic tests might include:
Urine tests. Your doctor might have a sample of your urine analyzed to look for signs of infection in your urine (urinalysis). Your doctor might also send a sample of your urine to a lab to determine if you have an infection.
Blood tests. Your doctor might examine samples of your blood for signs of infection and other prostate problems.
Post-prostatic massage. In rare cases, your doctor might massage your prostate and test the secretions.
Imaging tests. In some cases, your doctor might order a CT scan of your urinary tract and prostate or a sonogram of your prostate. CT scan images provide more detailed information than plain X-rays do. A sonogram is the visual image produced by an ultrasound.
Based on your symptoms and test results, your doctor might conclude that you have one of the following types of prostatitis:

In this edifying sofa discussion, school teacher David Perks tells us why, with a group of passionate teachers, he is setting up a science ‘free school’ in East London. What is key, he argues, is the need to challenge the pervasive low expectations we have for young people’s ability to learn. Comparable with the best public schools in the country, his school promises to offer: specialist teachers with a passion for their subject; the English baccalaureate; intensive mornings and practical afternoons; homework in school and more. With extraordinary ambitions to open the door to young people in the East End based on ‘line of site’ proximity to the school, his school will be a first in giving many young people the chance to win a place at the best universities to study science. The litmus test for success he tells us will be how many of his students make an impact on the world. His compelling case leaves discussants more than a little inspired. WORLDwrite is delighted to announce its support for this unique and aspirational venture.
