Would you use V13.09 <OR> V13.89 for Personal Hx of Prostatitis since the prostate is a part of the GYUR system? Should it fall under only the Urniary System (V13.09) or Other (V13.89)?

I would have to say urinary - v13.09

Prostatitis is a common infection or an inflammation of the prostate. It can affect men of all ages and doesn't increase the risk for prostate cancer. Symptoms can include an urge to urinate, pain during urination, chills and fever, and pelvic pain.

Bacteria infecting the prostate cause acute prostatitis and chronic bacterial prostatitis. Bacteria most likely enter the prostate by:
Traveling through the urethra.
Being present in the urine because of a bladder infection.
Being introduced through the use of a urinary catheter.
