Just got a rectal exam at emergency, doctor say that I have an enlarged prostate but it's not to worry about, just odd because I'm 32. How does he know it's not to worry about? Why would I get an enlarged prostate so young?

In brief: PROSTATITIS EVAL

R/O prostatitis it may be tough to treat.
Hopefully you have seen a urologist recently. 1st line ab would be doxycycline for 6-8 wks, if no response cipro (ciprofloxacin) may be tried . I would recheck labs /UA C&S. & testosterone level . You also need abdominal/pelvic/prostate US R/O prostate stones. Also switch to gluten free diet Wholeapproach.com /GUTBLISS.com
