Hey there, I am Sarita's nurse............lol. Just my 2 cents worth............I would have your physician run a PSA test, don't want to do the DRE b/4 PSA test...........then an exam could be done. You may just have Prostatitis. Some of the sx of prostatitis include urinary problems, including increased urinary urgency and frequency, difficulty or pain when urinating, inability to completely empty the bladder, and blood-tinged urine.
Good luck. Kitt
