Prostatitis (prostate infection)]

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - Dr. Judith McKenzie is helping his patients with prostate infections.

Symptoms include an urgent need to urinate, weak urinary stream, painful urination and waking up at night to urinate.

It is caused by a chronic inflammatory condition. Increasing water intake and good hygiene can reduce the chance of infection.

See your doctor if you have urinary symptoms, especially if you develop a fever, blood in the urine, or worsening pain.
