    Suspected prostate cancer.

    Three weeks of lower bladder pain. Pain in the Rectum. And severe lower back pain. It's being barely managed by generic pain killers.. I suspect prostate problems but recent prostate internal. Showed I had a smooth prostate. Any help would be appreciated. I'm 61.

    Have you been checked for pulups or kidney stones?

        Yes just got checked for polyps all clear but not for kidney stones. Back at the doctor's next week. For the pain. Should I mention that ?. Thanks for your reply.

    Please go see a urologist as soon as you can. I am not a doctor but I did have my prostate gland removed about 10 months ago. All I know is that my doc recommended a biopsy to take samples that a pathologist can look at to determine cancer or not.

    Perhaps you have some swelling in your prostate going on. But I encourage you to see a urologist.

    By the way, if you do decide with your doctor to do the biopsy, please consider having this done in a hospital under anesthesia. Trust me when I tell you that it is VERY uncomfortable having it done in your doctor's office. Fair warning.

    No lab tests? PSA by primary care? Definitely recommend urologist it could be as simple as a uti, that's why a PCP is so important.
