Please note that I am not a medical professional, but I would consult with a urologist to urine culture test (3 tests), or blood test to eliminate the possibility of an infection, or benign prostatic hyperplasia -BPH).
The truth about biopsy is that it can confirm cancer, but does not come free, and poses risks, major one being serious infections, as I found out from a coworker...
You can see my opinion about diagnosis by reading my post. There is another test - circulation tumor cells (CTC), which, unfortunately, is available only at two locations
I hope you end up not with a cancer diagnosis; either way, get yourself familiarized with the alternatives before rushing to decisions.
