Acute prostatitis is the sudden onset of inflammation in the prostate. The prostate gland is a small, walnut-shaped organ located at the base of the bladder, in front of the rectum. The prostate provides 70 percent of the fluid for ejaculation.

Contraction of the prostate during ejaculation prevents semen from flowing backward into the bladder. Men who are suffering from prostatitis should avoid spicy food, and pay attention to the diets. Because there is an increasing number of people who like eating spicy food, but haven't had prostatitis, they are worrying about could spicy food lead to acute prostatitis? 
Men with acute prostatitis often have chills, fever, pain in the lower back and genital area, urinary frequency and urgency often at night, burning or painful urination, body aches, and a demonstrable infection of the urinary tract, as evidenced by white blood cells and bacteria in the urine. Acute prostatitis may be a complication of prostate biopsy. Often, the prostate gland is very tender to palpation through the rectum. 
Spicy foods do not directly affect your prostate, but they can irritate your bladder. The exact reason why spicy foods irritate your bladder is unknown, according to some survey.
