Abstract

BackgroundWe wished to determine if there were differences in pelvic and non-pelvic tenderness between men with chronic prostatitis-chronic pelvic pain syndrome CP-CPPS Type III and men without pelvic pain.

MethodsWe performed the Manual Tender Point Survey MTPS as described by the American College of Rheumatology on 62 men with CP-CPPS Type IIIA and IIIB and 98 men without pelvic pain. We also assessed tenderness of 10 external pelvic tender points EPTP and of 7 internal pelvic tender points IPTP. All study participants completed the National Institutes of Health Chronic Prostatitis Symptom Inventory NIH CPSI.

ResultsWe found that men with CPPS were significantly more tender in the MTPS, the EPTPS and the IPTPS. CPSI scores correlated with EPTP scale but not with IPTP scale or prostate tenderness. Prostatic tenderness was present in 75% of men with CPPS and in 50% of men without CPPS. Expressed prostatic fluid leukocytosis was not associated with prostatic tenderness.

ConclusionMen with CP-CPPS have more tenderness compared to men without CPPS. Tenderness in men with CPPS is distributed throughout the pelvis and not specific to the prostate.
