Causes of the development of asymptomatic prostatitis are the same as in the case of the classical course of the disease with the manifested symptoms. These include bacterial infections, hypothermia, reduced immune status, and circulation disorders. At the same time the nature of this disease remains understudied.
Asymptomatic prostatitis is usually diagnosed accidentally either during a planned examination or when a patient seeks medical attention due to other conditions. The main diagnostic index of asymptomatic prostatitis is an increased level of white blood cells in prostatic fluid.
Methods of chronic asymptomatic prostatitis treatment are identical to the methods used to cure other forms of the disease. Antibacterial and anti-inflammatory therapy form the basis of treatment. Reflexotherapy, ultrasonic therapy, prostate massage, thermal exposure and other methods are also widely used for managing asymptomatic prostatitis.
