Not cancer, but...: You're got one of these prostate-discomfort problems that's likely to be a challenge to treat. Cancer doesn't act or present like this and at your age tne odds are basically zero, but you owe it to yourself and anybody special in your life to get managed. Good luck.

24 yo men: Do not get prostate cancer. You could have persistent prostatitis. I'm confused about perineal ejacaulate if you do not have perineal urination as well. You need to see a urologist that can examine external genitalia, perineum, rectum and cystourethroscopy.
