Could it be prostasis? Already saw urologist but he ignores my symptomps

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hello 28 male here. my problems started month ago by numb pain/discomfort? Hard to tell simply unpleasant feeling down there. Also frequent urination. I went to urologist, i had urine test done and he found microscopic blood in urine and bacteria.

He send for some more tests. As i waiting nearly a month symptoms went from no pain for few days to back to it. I still feel little numb pain /discomfort sometimes in one testicle, sometimes both, sometimes in penis , but mostly in both testicles. Not all the time of the day, mostly if i drink alcohol. But i had ct scan done - pelvic and abdominal area and cystoscopy and they found nothing so urologist closed it with words you are healthy , you have nothing go home.

But i still feel discomfort/pain, have microscopic blood in my urine, and my urinating is still not ideal. What it could be? I already made appointment with best urologist in town (references) but it will be after two months from now. What to do

      I had real long urinations at age 59. Before that I went to bathroom more than usuual sometimes, but it was o.k, because the urinations weren't long. It didn"t affect my life really....

    my son is 22, healthy and very fit, and has precisely what you describe here. went through same tests with same results. more caring doc it sounds like tho.

    we've read up on it and its most likely to be prostatitis caused by unknown bacteria. His doctor is treating with long course antibiotics. he has seen improvement.

    definitely switch doctors because this is a known thing in very young adult men that is puzzling the urology profession.

    if you haven't yet, Google your symptoms and you'll see you aren't alone. i believe his clinic, Chesapeake Urology, gave him a brochure on it

    good luck. i know it must be frustrating

    Doesn't sound like prostate Jan. Micro blood in urine isn't uncommon. You probably know that the body changes blood all the time. That is why your deposits from the other end are brown. Have you thought about your diet? I am unable to eat dark green veg as it is high in vitamin K as I take anti coagulants and also makes me urinate a lot. More especially at night which ruins sleep. Even peas affect me. Also acids and acid drinks. Alcohol is a also a diuretic. Have you been checked out for haemorrhoids ? Sitting on them can be very uncomfortable. It sounds like you are a bit of a worrier Jan. If the specialist and doctor have given you the ok then relax.

    Did the urologist do a PSA test and/or a digital rectal exam? I'm surprised he didn't start you on antibiotics to address the possibility of infection. Perhaps you can ask your general practitioner if he recommends a PSA test and antibiotics in case of infection and get in to see him/her sooner.
