Detailed Description

chronic non bacterial prostatitis is usually due to congestion combined with severe inflammatory process of the prostate, it is usually a recurrent bothersome problem, so patients who fail to response to classic medical treatment are expected to benefit from a strong anti inflammatory injection like betamethasone, which has strong anti inflammatory plus anti oedematous properties so limitation of this inflammatory process across the prostate is expected to relieve the patients symptoms
