DRE Digital Rectal Exam

Some reason last post formatted incorrectly, will try again.

I have had an aching in my testicals / prostate for 3 weeks now since I had to self cath on Feb 9, 2019. I have an appointment with my urologist on Tuesday this week. Should I refuse DRE? Does this cause symptoms to worsen? It has been 1 year since last he did the DRE.
