For the past month or so I've been experiencing a slight burning sensation/pressure in my bladder area and more recently my urine stream isn't as heavy as it used to be. I feel like when I urinate, it isn't as forceful, it doesn't trickle out but I can definitely can tell it's different. Sometimes it doesn't all come out and when I tuck my penis back into my underwear, it's like a rush of urine comes out and goes down my thigh. I'm not sure if this has anything to do with it but I also have been having a weak feeling in both of my legs on and off, mainly my left one though. I feel like when I step down while walking that my foot feels weak as well. On the inside of my left thigh by my groin area, I have a light pink area on my skin that started out as a small pink solid circle but I thought it was jock itch, so I bought some spray and I thought it got better but it's now a bigger pink splotch than the circle it started out as. When I urinate, I don't feel pain in my urethra, but I do feel the burning sensation in my bladder. Also when I ejaculate, I can feel the same feeling but sometimes I can feel it into the left side of my groin/testicle area.
Could this be a sign of Prostate Cancer? I'm only 28 years old but here's a summary of my families health history:
On my dads side:
My Grandpa, his dad and all 3 of his brothers had prostate cancer, one actually died.
My Great Grandmother(Grandpa's Mom) had skin caner
On my moms side:
My Grandpa had testicular and stomach cancer(which he died from last year)
My Aunt also had stomach caner but they caught it fast enough
My Uncle has heart issues and colon cancer(he's not doing so hot, refused a triple bypass so he's not doing the greatest)
My grandmother had lung cancer and heart issues her whole life(she died in a car accident not from health issues)
I'm mainly concerned because the wonderful world of google lead me to believe that I might have cancer but the weakness in my leg would mean it spread to the spine already? I was at my doctor earlier this year because I have issues with going to the bathroom, like literally anything I eat send me to the bathrom either instantly or within 20 mins of consuming it, she thought I had IBS or Chrons but never fully diagnosed me yet. I asked her for a PSA test but she told me not to worry about the big C word with me being so young yet. I told her my family history so you'd think that would have sparked some concern that it as a possibility.
