Does indicate risk for diabetes and/or immune problem (?locally, like having STD or ?systemically, like other issue). Needs evaluated to see what problem is. ...Read more

S/he can then refer to another Urologist (or go back to chat w/one who did cystoscopy). ...Read more

Prostate problems are the most common explanation overall, but uncommon at your age. For sure see your doctor soon about this; s/he probably will refer you to a urologist. ...Read more
