I developed prostate problems at about age 20 and have been diagnosed with Chronic Prostatitis several years ago. I had SRS at age 45 and I am now 61. I have experienced episodes on and off for 40 years. Lately, it has become more frequent and the symptoms a bit more pronounced. I get a digit exam once a year and other than it being swollen and tender, my prostate is smooth. My PSA is slightly elevated but not real high. I worry about developing cancer but tye link hetween prostatitis and developing cancer is not really known andvtge fact that I am a post op trans woman complicates things even more. My doctors tell me there is not much tgey can do about my prostatitis, but I really worry about developing cancer.
