ello,
Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
Prostatitis is difficult to treat illness and some times the infection just stays back to appear later on. You may have to do culture and sensitivity of the semen to identify the causative organism. Yes there si a possibility of cancer as well but as the PSA is mostly coming back normal, it is likely that there may not be any cancer. But still your decision is good to get a CT scan of the abdomen done.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
