It is difficult to tell without direct clinical examination, as these symptoms are shared with many causes.
This could be due to infection in the genitourinary tract like cystitis , prostatitis and or epidyimitis.
It may occur also in cases of prostate enlargement which causes urine outflow disturbance which in turn results in cystitis.
Urine analysis and urine culture are essential for the diagnosis.
Direct clinical examination is essential for proper management.
Your doctor may advise Transrectal US or Pelvic US.
