Brief Answer:
Prostate infection can last for months

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for query .

Based on the facts that you have posted you seem to have infection of Prostate (Prostatitis) and have been taking Ciprofloxacin,

Prostate infection is the most notorious infection that keeps on lingering for months and if ill treated may become a chronic infection (Chronic Prostatitis ) that may last for years but normally it does not precipitate into cancer of prostate ..

It is mandatory to do some specific test to confirm the diagnosis so that one can take appropriate antibiotic to eradicate the infection .

Consult qualified Urologist for clinical and digital rectal examination and get following basic tests done to confirm the diagnosis.
1) Urine routine and culture.
2) Ultrasound scanning of abdomen and pelvis
3) Serum PSA.
4) Semen examination and Semen culture .

In the mean time continue taking Ciprofloxacin twice daily

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions,I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.

I am unable to understand your query no 1 and 2 Please elaborate it in detail to make precise comments .

Pain in buttocks and perennial region can be due to Prostate infection However since it requires one to take antibiotic for long duration it is advisable to get the tests done to establish diagnosis which I have suggested in my earlier reply.

Thanks and Regards.

Brief Answer:
Doing Semen examination and culture along with Rectal Ultrasound is must.

Detailed Answer:
hello
Thanks for follow up .

Urine routine examination an culture is not sufficient to establish diagnosis .

As semen contains prostatic secretions doing semen examination and semen culture along with Trans Rectal Ultrasound scan are highly sensitive test to establish diagnosis of Prostatitis .
