Hi,

IF you have a history of BCG being given for a superficial bladder tumor, then it is possible to have got it because of that. Most cases of granulomatous prostatitis are non-specific (in terms of a clear etiology upon analysis) and majority would spontaneously resolve, and hence no specific therapy would be required. It would be important to make sure you do not have any disseminated granulomatous disease, as this may require some specific treatment. Discuss your concerns with your doctor. Stay positive.
