About the Prostatitis Foundation

Many men have been suffering in silence from a disease that has been largely ignored by the medical community. This disease is called prostatitis , inflammation of the prostate gland. Prostatitis causes intense pain, urinarycomplications, sexual dysfunction, infertility, and a drastic reduction in the quality of life. Almost no research has taken place to find diagnostic techniques or a cure. No research has shown that it does not lead to prostate cancer or BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia).

The last ten years have seen great strides in the treatment of prostate cancer and BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia), diseases which affect mostly older men. Prostatitis, a non-fatal but often disabling disease affecting young men in their prime of life, has been overlooked, avoided, dismissed or ignored, becoming the bastard child of prostate disorders. Sufferers are offered, at best, a life-long course of antibiotics, and at worst, a state of constant agony and neglect.

Since the founding of The Prostatitis Foundation in 1995 to push for Prostatitis research, collect data on the disease, and provide information to men who are suffering from the disease, important first steps have been taken. Four research conferences, in 1995, 1998 and1999 and 2000, have been held to bring together prostatitis researchers. The conferences have been cosponsored by The Prostatitis Foundation and National Institutes of Health. Congress has appropriated some small amounts of money to prostatitis research.
