Topic Overview

Chronic prostatitis/pelvic pain syndrome, noninflammatory, is a common form of prostatitis. It causes pain in the pelvic area, where the prostate sits. But pain is the only symptom. It does not cause general illness, infection, or inflammation.

This condition used to be called prostatodynia.
