Chronic Prostatitis

Dear Sirs
I got Chronic prostatitis first time about 12 years ago. The lab tests where positive to many  microbes  and I took antibiotics for 6 months. The results where successful.
Since then I got it back twice 3 years and 6 years later (same therapy-successful) and now I got it back again.
My questions are:
1. What could I do after the antibiotic treatment to make my "system" stronger? I know that healthy lifestyle etc helps a lot, but is there some specific vitamins or nutritius or something else that could help me? Is there any possibility to cure it permanently?
2. Is it true that I have higher possibilities than a healthy person to get prostate cancer in the future? Are there any statistics about it?
I'm 35 years old and I have high sexual activity (mostly safe sex though)

thank you in adnance and feel free to ask for any definition!

P.S. I ask an apology for my English, I hope you can understand it ;-))

Chronic prostatitis can certainly be difficult to treat.  To answer your questions:

1) There is no specific studies showing a treatment to "strengthen" the immune system.  I am not aware of vitamins that have been shown to help in consensus studies.

2) I am not aware of studies showing a definitive correlation between chronic prostatitis and prostate cancer.  

These questions should be discussed with your personal urologist.

If the symptoms continue, a transrectal ultrasound can be considered to image the prostate for any abscesses.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.

What were your symptoms of chronic prostitus? I was urinating frequently for 1 week, now just feel like bladder is full even after I go. Sitting for long time makes my bladder feel more full.
