In brief: Good doctor

Both of these need a doctor to take a history and then blood tests, urinalysis and rectal exam. The treatment according to these findings.

In brief: History, exam, labs

One needs to see a doctor to determine if signs or symptoms are from prostatitis or bph.
The gold standard to diagnose these conditions of the prostate is a biopsy, although many physicians will make an accurate assessment of the clinical signs and symptoms to guide their therapy. A full history, exam including prostate exam, urinalysis, culture, uroflowmetry/residual may be used.
