Brief Answer:
Prostate cancer is very slow growing cancer

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for query .

Based on the facts that your Dr who has done your Digital Rectal Examination one month back and diagnosed you to have Prostate Infection (Prostatitis and accordingly prescribed you Ciprofloxacin .

I would like to state that Prostate cancer is very slow growing cancer hence it is unlikely that it will get transformed in Cancer of the prostate within a month .

You need to do blood test for Serum PSA which is a basic screening test to suspect cancer of prostate if PSA is raised above 4 ng consult qualified Urologist for Digital Rectal Examination (DRE) .If he finds a hard nodule on DRE then he would suggest you to go for ultrasound guided biopsy of the prostate which is only confirmative test to establish diagnosis of cancer of Prostate .

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.
