im trying to figure out if im having prostate problems or hemorrhoids. i've had prostatitis on and off for the past couple years. when it flares, it usually feels like an intense burning sensation on the tip of my penis and in the urethra. my flow isn't affected unless it's really bad.
for the past couple days, however, i've had the sensation of there being something in my anus (sort of like a golf ball) accompanied by itching and discomfort when sitting. it's extremely annoying/painful. i'm not having my typical prostate urinary problems, so im wondering if it sounds like hemorrhoids or prostate stuff to you.
anyway, sorry for whatever brought you guys here. i really appreciate any informed input.

Get it checked,as yes it could be haemorrhoids but it could also be prostatitis and the “ sitting on a golf ball” feeling is a well documented symptom of prostatitis.
it has been more than three years, did you get any solution? I am 50 years old and have similar problem from last 8 months. It started with rectal pain and my PCP suggested to consult a gastroenterologist who did colonoscopy and found small/medium internal hemorrhoid and prescribed cream which did not help. Later on I developed UTI kind of symptoms and saw a Urologist who told me it is prostatitis and prescribed couple of round of antibiotics which did get me any relief either. I have been having consistent pain from 8 months. The prostate MRI says prostatitis, the prostate measure 4x2.8x3.6 cm / 22 cc. Is this normal or enlarged?
I am not sure what what is causing pain and discomfort, prostatitis or internal hemorroid?
Any suggestion for community?
