i have seen a urologist for my enlarged prostate
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 11 months ago

OK

No, to answer the question, motrin will not clear up a prostatitis which can be from bacterial infection.

You need to call your doctor right away. This needs to be cultured for the lab. Infection needs the correct antibiotics.

Motrin will do nothing, and you can wind up in the hospital.

After infection is ruled out, you need to follow up with your urologist.

This type of discharge can represent anything from a broken vein in the prostate to cancer, and that always needs to be ruled out.

OK, let me know if you have further questions.

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.

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.
