In brief: May be..., but...

Prostatitis has been one of most commonly overused, miused, & even abused diagnoses assigned to men having possible prostate-related symptoms, and interpreting the findings of cystoscopy can be examiner-subjective to a great degree.
Hence, what you said is possible. More? Ask your urologist.

The term "Prostatitis" implies an inflammation of the prostate. This may be due to an acute or chronic bacterial infection involving the prostate OR more commonly due to non-bacterial, non-specific causes which are often elusive and poorly understood. Cystoscopy and U/A are usually unremarkable in such cases and the diagnosis is based on a thorough history and GU exam and appropriate testing.
