Chronic Prostatitis/Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (CP/CPPS) is a condition with several causes of which some remain unknown. It is believed that some types of CP may be genetic or passed down (inherited) from one generation to the next.
In this study, we are collecting genetic material and medical information to try to determine if there are genetic factors may play a role in CP/CPPS. We will be collecting DNA (from Saliva) and urine from each participant. Individuals and families with CP/CPPS will be enrolled. Family members of an individual with CP/CPPS are eligible whether or not they also experience CP/CPPS symptoms.
Biospecimen Retention: Samples With DNA
DNA sample via saliva and urine samples will be collected and stored.

To further describe the phenotype of chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) and to correlate the phenotypic information with the genotypic findings utilizing linkage analysis, whole exome sequencing and candidate gene studies. Each individual participant will be required to give a DNA sample (via Saliva) and a urine sample and answer 2 questionnaires. All samples will be stored.
