Once in a few months i experience tingling sharp pain in my perineum.  Does it already mean i have prostate cancer?

I doubt cancer: this pain could be something mild or trivial such as a muscle contraction in the pelvis, bladder or rectum. unfortunately the diagnosis of prostate cancer is more complicated than simple symptoms. if you are around 50 and have a family history of prostate cancer, consider discussing this question with a doctor.

Can a 24 yrs old male get prostate cancer? Was on cipro (ciprofloxacin) for 1 month for prostatitis, now stopped. Burning in urine and ejaculating on perineum area.

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. ...Read more

Fermented wheat germ: This is a nutritional supplement with some good nutrients that's cheap to make and sell to support cancer patient nutrition in some countries.
