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 !

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..

Besides cipro what type of antibiotic might you suggest and why an alpha blocker long term ?
Answered by Dr. G.Srinivasan 48 minutes later
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.

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.

Hi! I'm a 46 years old male, and I've had UTI (E. Coli in the urine) for 6 months. approx. 2 months ago my urine was clear from bacteria (after treatment with different antibiotics), and I've had blood in the urine twice - first it was 6 months ago and now. The blood disappeared in one or two hours after drinking a lot of water. And there was pain, after voiding the bladder twice, the third time it was painful and only a little volume of urine in red color. My question is, could this be because of the inflammation (prostate and bladder), because the last one month I stopped using tamsulosin? Or should I have a cystoscopy for more accurate diagnosis?
