Causes of Prostatitis

Candida and Chronic Prostatitis

Is prostatitis related to candidiasis?

Candida is a yeast.

Candida is documented to cause prostatitis in some men, especially in immunocompromised men. There is an ongoing debate about how important Candida is as a cause of chronic prostatitis in men who are not immunocompromised. See:
