Hello,
I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.
I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.
Chance of syphilis is unlikely as all of your investigations were normal and these symptoms do not indicate it. Your symptoms are suggestive of;
1) Prostatitis (prostate infection)
2) Benign prostate hypertrophy (age related enlargement of the prostate).
Following investigations should be able to ascertain the cause;
1) Semen culture
2) Urine culture
3) Ultrasound of the prostate and scrotum.
You may need a course of antibiotic like Co-trimaxazole or 2-3 weeks and medications for enlarged prostate.
Please feel free for your follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
Thanks for using Just Answer.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
