seeing age generally prostate cancer is disease of old age(>60 years ) . this is more likely either UTI or benign prostatic hypertrophy. but to rule out cancer of prostate you should get done Serum PSA Level done. along with digital examination of prostate(per rectal examination) this digital examination should always follows PSA estimation as this examination falsely raise level of PSA. If there is induaration of prostate and or Raising PSA more than 4ng/dl than trans rectal prostate biopsy is indicated for confirmation of prostatic adenocarcinoma.

Oncologist Dr. Ioan Dorian OANA's  Response
Normally prostate cancer is not common at your age, and on the other hand your signs suggest more an urinary infection than a cancer. The easiest way however to forget completely about a potential prostate cancer is to make a PSA analysis and an urological consult.
