Hello XXXXXXX,

Thanks for posting your query.

From your symptoms of pain at tip of penis, painful erection and frequent urination, there is an important possibility that this is due to prostatitis. The typical symptoms of prostatitis are fever, pelvic, testicle, penis tip or rectal pain, frequent and painful urination and ejaculation and incomplete emptying of bladder.

For confirming the diagnosis, you need to get it evaluated from a urologist. He will physically examine you and do a per rectal examination to check the status of prostate. A culture of the expressed prostatic secretions (EPS) can help in ruling out or confirming the diagnosis. A test named as Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) test can also help as PSA is raised in Prostatis.

A Urologist can diagnose the condition by digital examination also. If prostatitis is diagnosed then specific treatment is planned which may include a course of antibiotics.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Please accept my answer in case you have no follow up query.

Wishing you good health.
