Had the problem for about 12 months.


Been to the doctor and had tests as advise.

No treatment.

Thank you:

I'm happy to hear that these tests were all normal. The dark discoloration can be caused by a low-grade chronic infection of the prostate. Even with all the tests normal, some physicians would consider treating you with 2-4 weeks of an antibiotic to see if the symptoms improved.

Thank you for your help, i will see my GP in the near future.

If you have not been checked by a urologist (specialist), this would also be a very reasonable next step.
