Where do you feel prostate pain?
Prostate pain is no laughing matter, but we’re going to try our best to make you laugh while providing you with valuable information about where prostate pain can occur. So grab a coffee or some herbal tea and let’s dive into the wild world of prostate pain!
What is the Prostate Gland?
Before we get started, it’s important to know what the prostate gland is and what it does. The prostate gland sits just below the bladder in men and surrounds part of the urethra. Its primary function is to produce fluid that helps protect and nourish sperm.

Types of Prostatitis
Now that we’ve established what the prostate gland is let’s talk about prostatitis – inflammation of the prostate gland. There are four different types:
Acute Bacterial Prostatitis
Acute bacterial prostatitis means there’s an infection in your beegee board (that’s Aussie slang for ‘private parts’). Symptoms can be sudden onset fever/chills, painful urination/bowel movements/ejaculation or difficulty urinating at all. Sometimes ye olde wee wee may even burn making peeing feel hotter than Lava Mama Africa Wax.
Chronic Bacterial Prostatitis
This type occurs when bacteria linger after being treated for acute bacterial prostatitis OR getting reinfected by passing particles through urine etc.. It can cause episodes pelvic discomfort which worsen at times as well as other flu-like symptoms.
Non-Bacterial Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome
Non-bacterial chronic pelvic pain syndrome has similar symptoms as chronic bacterial proctatis; however no bacteria found present in testing samples from patients afflicted with this near-chronic condition so diagnosis uncertain leading one theory claiming hormone imbalances could somehow trigger spasmodic muscle behavior in the pelvic area.
Finally, there’s asymptomatic prostatitis, which means you don’t have any symptoms at all (lucky you!). The only way to detect it is by taking a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test or undergoing a transrectal ultrasound. But should one blindly seek medical interventions for something they’re not feeling? Well maybe yah because untreated patients may lose fertility leading to lifestyle changes such as an unexpected fecund financial difficulty.

Prostate pain is sometimes felt in the thighs and hips, which can be confusing. This kind of pain tends to present itself as a numbness, tingling or some sense of discomfort/coldness occurring around your lower body region especially when changing positions from sitting/lying down into standing position(though this also could arise during certain exercises where muscles tighten pushing pelvic area upwards).
