Brief Answer: Most likely benign... Detailed Answer: Hi, It most likely seems to be benign condition secondary to inflammation or enlarged prostate gland. I would recommend that you drink plenty of fluids (unless you have fluid restriction). Recheck your medicines; antiplatelet / anticougulant drugs that increases incidence of bleeding are routinely prescribed after a heart attack. Talk to your doctor if you are on those drugs. Alternatively you can list them here. If irritation is severe and troubling, I would order for an urine routine / microscopy and an ultrasound examination. Your treating doctor will know about it. Hope this helps you. Let me know if you need clarifications. Regards
