Abstract

A group of 218 men complaining of symptoms of chronic prostatitis were identified. Symptoms included pelvic and genital pain with or without voiding or ejaculation, urinary frequency and/or urgency, and often a thin watery urethral discharge. Of the group 134 (60%) were followed carefully. With nothing but stress management therapy 110 patients (86%) reported that they were "better," "much better," or "cured." Physiologically, the therapy makes sound medical sense. It is suggested that the term "stress prostatitis" is an appropriate label for this condition.
