Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have either Benign Enlargement of prostate or Prostatitis.
Please consult qualified Urologist for clinical and digital rectal examination to confirm the diagnosis.
He may advise you to do following tests .
1) Routine urine test
2) Ultrasound scanning of the abdomen to rule out enlarged prostate.

Please take broad spectrum antibiotics along with anti inflammatory medication like Diclofenac twice daily .
