I was in West Africa on a job assignment. I had unprotected sex about a month ago. I developed pain in the urinary tract about a centineter away form the head of my penis.I experiences slightly painful urination and burning sensation whenever I peed. I tried to treat this with doxycycline which we are required to take 100mg daily for malaria prevention. After four days of not seeing improvement when I administering a twice daily doxy dosage of what I perceived was a urinary tract infection - I talked to the pharmacy and they gave me a ciproflaxin generic which I took for five days. The pain diminshed but the iriritation seem to moved down my urethra, under me and toward my anal area. I feel like the urge to pee was introducing an associated urge to defficate. I came to Houston last week - the clinic checked my urine and found no bacteria and no blood and blood sugar was OK - all was OK. They however put me on a six week regimen of ciprofaxin. I currently take 88mcg levthyroxine and 10mg quinapril daily. I began to experience lower back muscle soreness and went back to the clinic - a urine test proved OK. They gave me rbaxin to take for five days once a night - it helps though my back is still sore. I get a sexual sensation as in a need to ejaculate and when I try to urinate I have difficulty emptying my bowels. Sometimes I feel slight itch as in inside my bowels - from the testicle are to the anus. I am going back to work in west africa in a week and a half - can you tell me what my problem might be. I did on ocassion use a cheap version of viagra (french made) in the market place but it made my body ache the next day so I stopped using it. Now I wake up in the early morning with an urge to pee along with an erection without the generic viagra use. I stopped using the viagra type a month ago.Please advise and tell me if the regimen of ciproflax can work and that I am not developing cancer

HelloThis sounds like a prostate problemDoxyclicine or cipro can be usedDoxycicline is better in my experience.It can be soreness and inflammation without infection.This is also not uncommon.I would suggest that right now you need a urologist to do the exam..see how the prostate is.A free PSA is a lab test than can give you your risk level or not for prostate cancer.
