Question: I have a burning sensation that seems to radiate from the rectum, bladder and genital area.There is no abdominal pain or difficulty with urinating.Had a recent physical and all of my numbers were normal including a psa of 1.1. Had adigital exam and the doctor said it was normal , however it was tender and painful to me .About a year ago I had bloodly seamen for a few months, but again the doctor was not concerned. I can live with the burning but am still a bit concerned. I would be grateful to have your opinion . Thank you !

Hi
Welcome to XXXXXXX and thanks for your query.
To me, it looks like inflammation in the prostate or seminal vesicles.
Things that would help are
1.     Urine culture to choose the right antibiotic.
2.     Antibiotics for at least one month.
3.     Alpha blocker (long term)
4.     Stool softeners.
5.     Regular sex or masturbation.
6.     To keep Blood pressure under control.
7.     Muscle relaxants.
Hope this helps, kindly get back for doubts if any..
Regards

Hi
Welcome back.
Most quinolone group of medicines like cipro or ofloxacin are effective.
Also sulfonamides are effective.
Alpha blockers do help in prostatitis and benign enlargement of the prostate - to relieve symptoms.
Kindly take medical advice and get well soon.

Hello. I have been treated for chronic prostatitis with sulfamethoxazole. Although the symptoms seem to be diminishing and I feel much better, there is the purple area just inside of my pee hole. It kind of looks like a vein leading to the opening. At the opening there is what seems to be xcess skin being pushed up from the purplish area creating almost like a fat lip on the one side of the hole. Is this a symptom of prostatitis?

I am 45 years old, for the past 5 years I usually get a case of prostatitis once per year. Just finishing up a round of anti-biotics (levaquin) and my urologist tried a new bph medicine with me (rapaflow). Within 3-4 days of the meds, my symptoms all but left but after a week I experienced diarrhea (witch lasted almost 2 weeks) and also noticed little or now semen in ejaculations. Also, after bowel movements, over the last 4 days, I find myself having to sit and wait for small amounts of urine to pass. No matter how long I wait, I usually find I leak a few drips shortly afterward. Any comments / advice would be appreciated

Okay here's my problem: I'm 36 years old, have polycystic kidney disease and a history of prostatitis (4 instances all mild). For the last three weeks I've been having prostatitis symptoms again (perineal pain, burning after urination, penile and testicular pain) Went to the urologist a week ago and found my prostate to be roughly 2.5 times normal size. Diagnosed with bph and prescribed proscar. My question is isn't it a little unlikely to have this kind of enlargement this soon? I've taken two doses of the proscar couldn't get an erection so I discontinued use. Doctor currently has me on antibiotics but all I want is relief. I refuse to be 36 and non-functional sexually. Are there any other options? I'm freaking out and very depressed. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Hi I am a 22 year old male, with pain and swelling in my epididymis. I was diagnosed with epididymitis about a year and a half ago and went through multiple trials of antibiotics and anti inflammatory medicine. Some trials came with a little relief but pain and swelling would return after about a month. I also had an ultrasound which showed nothing abnormal. After about 6 months of dealing with epididymitis doctors diagnosed me with chronic prostatitis. After I was diagnosed, I decided to enroll myself in yoga and found myself a knowledgeable physical therapist to help with all my pelvic pain. After about 2 months of working with the PT my pelvic pain was alleviated. It's been about 3 or 4 months since I've been back and my pelvic pain is still minimal, however I still have great pain and swelling in both of my epididymis. I can feel that the coils are very swollen and the actual epididymis is swollen and hard. I have yet to find relief to the swelling and pain of the epidiymis although I've found relief in all my other forms of pelvic pain. Any help or suggestions are appreciated. Thank you.
