Prostatitis vs NGU: Nonbacterial prostatitis can occur at any age, but less common at age 28 than in older men. Make sure you don't have chlamydia or nongonococcal urethritis (NGU). If your main symptom is discharge, NGU is most likely. If pain, discomfort, and urinary symptoms, probably prostatitis or chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS) (google for more info; the Wikipedia article is good). Discuss with your doctor.
