Abstract

Chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) is a common condition that significantly affects the quality of life. On the other hand, urologists find it challenging to treat this disorder effectively. To date, the Urinary, Psychosocial, Organ-Specific, Infection, Neurological/Systemic, and Tenderness (UPOINT) system is the only classification tool that can improve the treatment outcomes significantly compared to monotherapy. This review focused on the most recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of CP/CPPS.
