Acute bacterial prostatitis is a condition that may be caused by a sexually transmitted disease, damage to the prostate during surgery or from a catheter placed in the bladder (which may introduce bacteria into the prostate). This condition may cause pain in the leg and genital area, painful and frequent urination, fever and back pain. Antibiotics and pain medication are usually used to treat this condition.
