Inflammed Genitals, Prostatitis, or Cancer?

Posted , 5 users are following.


I'm a 34 year old man. I suffer from Anxiety, Depression, and OCD.

Ever since last year when I cold turkey my antidepressant. I've been having various symptoms due to withdrawals and one of them is hyperarousal. Usually I would masturbate once or twice a day. However, after that, I'd be doing this three to five times a day for seven days a week. I began to have aches around my naval and or pelvic area. In addition, noticed hesitancy when peeing and clear discharge when pooping since I suffer from IBS also.

On the last week of July I kept doing this, and after I ejaculated I smelt my semen, and instead of having classic bleach like smell, it had a metallic smell to it which I know its the same smell as blood.

Two days later, I think is when I pushed my genitals too far, I masturbate from five to eight times a day. After that, I began peeing blood. Then, the following symptoms occurred

Pain in the tip of the penis.

Pain around the base of the penis - Pain around the base when having an erection.

a cut like feeling down my urethra.

burning sensation when peeing

urge to pee - though not been able to...I have to force it out.

Ache on testicles and or sensations in the area between the genitals and anus.

anal pressure.

Premature ejaculation without masturbating.

Sensations around my belly button or below the right side of the pelvic wall.

Doesn't help I also have off balance feeling, or feeling tired which comes with anxiety.

Peeing blood has been intermitten. Didn't have an episode until today. Last episode was the 31st of July.

My primary mentioned that I had irritated my genitals, and this was cause for the bleeding. Recommended me to lay off any self pleasure and stop masturbating excessively. She sent to be seen for psychiatric help since I might be suffering from sex addiction.

It was calming down until I dared to watch some porn. Never masturbated though did get erections that were painful some of the time. I had the premature ejaculation event without even touching myself. After that occured, I had the pressure sensation that I needed to pee once again, and the sensation went away after I peed. However, I kept doing the same, pushing and rubbing on my genitals, and noticed slight aches and pains around the pelvic wall, and discharge from my penis.

Today, I woke up, then I had aches around my belly button, and constant urge to pee. My urine was normal, until I began to pee blood again.

I'm scared that this might be something else more serious like Bladder or Prostate Cancer or something wrong with my kidneys. She ordered blood work done, and that came back normal. She did a urine test and didn't find any UTI, though I'm having all the classical symptoms of one.

I've already called her office, and since she's booked all the way to October, she's going to call me and do a phone consultation, so I hope after this she refers me to a urologist to get the definitive answer if these symptoms are just me screwing up with my genitals or something else.

I've come across that most of my symptoms match that of Prostatitis. Any of you gents can give me some peace since I'm freaking out that this might be something more serious.

    Went back to the Dr's office. The head physcian saw me since my primary was booked. She wasn't that pleased to see me since she's seen my case. She mentioned if I truly wanted their help, to trust them by getting psychiatric help and start retaking my antidepressant.

    What scares me is that I lost six pounds in four weeks. Though, I did cut drinking citrus and tortillas and chips. Also, I had high blood pressure though that could be due to the stress I'm in at the moment.

    She went to the point and wanting the symptoms. I gave her the list, similar to what I posted here. She suspects that I have prostatitis, though to make sure she's ordered ultrasound for my kidneys and referred me to a urologist just to make sure her diagnosis is correct. Also, they took urine sample and are going to do a urine culture test to see if there's something in there that's causing all of my symptoms.

    I would suggest the following 2 books:

    Ending Male Pelvic Pain by Isa Herrera

    A Headache in the Pelvis

    The first book is shorter and more concise. If you want something more thorough try the second book. I have been suffering from chronic prostatitis for 25 years. I also eventually developed BPH which probably made symptoms worse. Infact, they have been getting worse over time.

    I would pee blood every time I had a flareup. I then went on a low oxalate diet 4 years ago and haven't had bleeding since. My symptoms also improved a little bit.

    You might try supplements. These help to some extent: super saw palmetto by Enzymatic Therapy 320mg/day, Quercetin, Pygeum, zinc.

    I was diagnosed with chronic bacterial prostatitis - I had several tests on urine samples which came up no problem; I suspect these urinary tests are a complete waste of time with prostatitis . I insisted on a semen test which came out with bacterial infection "heavy growth of enterococcus susceptible to Amoxicillin" - so I was prescribed with that; and much good it did me - it made the symptoms worse - burning urination, scrotum burn/irritation, constipation and burning difficult bowel movements.

    So much good it did me - I suspect that there is an unidentified fungal infection down there - and that's why the Amoxicillin has this bad effect

    Still it's good to at least have the semen test done so you have some better idea of where you are with it
