I have been suffering from painful and frequent urination and testicular pain since I was 22. Visited the Urologist three times and went through many ultrasounds of the urinary tract that came up with nothing. When I suggested to my Urologist that I might have something wrong with my prostate, he very firmly dismissed it, saying I am way to young to have any prostate related problems. Recently I have been experiencing rectal pain while defecating and also while sitting. My poop have been coming out all flattened and deformed. My Gp sent me to a Colorectal Surgeon, who performed a rectal exam and diagnosed me with an enlarged and sensitive prostate. He said I should go back to my urologist for further treatment. My question is should I go back to the same Urologist who I feel have been neglecting me. For years he have failed to perform a simple exam and pretty much avoided any sort of diagnosis or treatment. Also, I know it is very unlikely to have prostate cancer at my age, but I feel that my condition is worsening to the point that It's almost too painful to poop. I was wondering if there is some sort of a test that I can take to make sure I only have an enlarged prostate and not prostate cancer? For my own peace of mind of course.
