Hello

this sounds like acute prostatitis.

You need to see the doctor immdiately.

Cipro is not the best drug at this point.

I would ask for doxycicline.

If that is the diagnosis.

Bleeding also necessitates assessment of the bladder, and the entire track, testicles, etc.

See a urologist immediately.

Is there a possibility of these symptoms being caused by something more serious like a tumor or cancer?
Expert:  DrThomasMd replied 1 year ago.

Yes that is possible.

But a urologist will rule these out.

Bladder scope, testicular exam, ultrasound, etc.
